OBJECTIVES Our previous study suggested that adrenaline (epinephrine) could be an effective absorption enhancer for ginsenoside Rg1 (Rg1). This study focused on the transport mechanism of Rg1 and the role of sodium-dependent glucose co-transporter 1 in the regulation of Rg1 uptake after exposure to adrenaline. METHODS Caco-2 cells were used as an in-vitro(More)
PURPOSE This article was intended to improve the absorption of ginsenoside Rg1 and Rb1 of Panax notoginseng saponins (PNS). METHODS PNS-Phospholipid complex and a lipid-based formulation by dissolving the complex in the medium chain fattyglycerides were prepared, and their oral relative bioavailability was determined in rats and compared with an aqueous(More)
The incomplete release of Endostar from PLGA microspheres was observed in our previous study. In the present study, we focused on the effect of medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) on the in vitro/in vivo release behavior of Endostar encapsulated PLGA microspheres, which were prepared by a water-in-oil-in-water (W/O/W) double-emulsion method with or without(More)
The purpose of this research is to evaluate the effect of self-micelle formation and incorporation of lipid in the formulation on absorption of ginsenosides Rg1 and Rb1 from intestinal tract in rats. Ginsenosides Rg1 and Rb1 were extracted from Panax notoginseng saponins (PNS). The critical micellar concentration (CMC) of PNS in deionzied water was(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this research was to evaluate the ability of adrenaline (epinephrine) to stimulate the uptake of ginsenoside Rg1 (Rg1) by Caco-2 cells. METHODS Rg1 uptake was measured using Caco-2 cell monolayers. The Rg1 uptake medium with adrenaline at different concentrations was added to each well and incubated for different time intervals.(More)
This work investigates X-PACT (X-ray Psoralen Activated Cancer Therapy): a new approach for the treatment of solid cancer. X-PACT utilizes psoralen, a potent anti-cancer therapeutic with current application to proliferative disease and extracorporeal photopheresis (ECP) of cutaneous T Cell Lymphoma. An immunogenic role for light-activated psoralen has been(More)
