Abstract

Among the three key active components (KACs) of Magnolia officinalis bark extract (ME), 4-O-methylhonokiol and honokiol showed higher antiproliferation activities than magnolol in the oral squamous cancer cell lines (Cal-27, SCC-9, and SCC-4). Oral bioavailabilities of ME-KACs were poor (<0.2%) in C57BL/6 mice primarily due to their extensive first-pass phase II metabolism and poor solubilities. High plasma concentration of glucuronides upon oral administration and faster rate of glucuronidation by intestinal microsomes indicated intestine as one of the major metabolic organs for ME-KACs. Despite the increase in bioavailabilities of ME-KACs (∼8-10-fold) and decrease in AUC0-24 of glucuronides (∼10-fold) upon ME solubility enhancement, systemic exposure of ME-KACs failed to improve meaningfully. In conclusion, we propose a quality-controlled and chemically defined ME mixture, containing an optimized ratio of three KACs, delivered locally in the oral cavity as the most promising strategy for ME use as an oral cancer chemopreventive dietary supplement.
