Morus alba fruits attenuates atopic dermatitis symptoms and pathology in vivo and in vitro via the regulation of barrier function, immune response and pruritus.



Morus alba fruits (MAF) belong to the Moraceae family, which are known to be effective in treating diabetic, autoimmune, and hormonal diseases owing to its low toxicity. MAF, as excerpted from Donguibogam, a representative Korean medical encyclopedia protected by UNESCO, has been widely used to treat lumbago, arthritis, and diabetes. Based on these effects, MAF is investigated for unidentified effects of atopic dermatitis, characterized by complex etiology of skin barrier dysfunction, inflammation, and chronic pruritus.
