The inhibitory effects of Polyrhachis vicina roger on chemiluminescence in whole blood and active oxygen has beed studied by using chemiluminescence. The results showed that the extract in ethanol and homogenate solution of Polyrhachis Vicina Roger can obviously inhibit chemiluminescence in whole blood with dose effect relationship. The function of the extract and homogenate solution on active oxygen produced by non cellular system is that they have an obvious scavenged effect on superoxide anion radicals, a less obvious effect on hydroxyl radicals, and they have inhibitory action on H 2O 2 in low concentration and a negative inhibitory action in high concentraion. These results suggest that the edible Polyrhachis vicina roger have the function of delaying aging, which may relate to their direct or indirect scavenging of the active oxygen produced by cellular or non cellular systems.
