In traditional Brazilian medicine, tubers extracts from Alocasia macrorrhizos are widely used in the treatment of skin pigmentation disorder. However, studies that evaluate its benefits in the treatment of this disorder are non-existent. Thus, this work aims to investigate the bioactivity of A. macrorrhizos extracts in cell culture and murine model of Vitiligo and correlating with its phenolic profile. The metabolic profiling from the bioactive extracts was obtained by LC-DAD-MS, FTIR, NMR, and CE-UV. The murine model of Vitiligo was induced with 5% hydroquinone in C57BL/6 male mice, which were treated or not with 100 mg/kg of roasted tuber aqueous extract. In Vitiligo model assay was observed hair follicle repigmentation and reduction of the epidermal layer thickness at the histopathological level, in the animals treated with aqueous extract of roasted tubers. The present study provides new molecular insight and scientific evidence on the potential utility of the extract of A. macrorrhizos against Vitiligo.
