This study was carried out to investigate the wound healing effect of caffeic acid in skin-incised mice. Caffeic acid showed significant effects on anti-inflammatory activity and wound healing, such as myeloperoxidase activity, lipid peroxidation, phospholipase A(2) activity and collagen-like polymer synthesis, in incised-wound tissue. On the other hand, it(More)
A study was conducted to determine the effect of carbon monoxide (CO), nitroxide (NOx) and sulfur dioxide (SO2) on ROS production, photosynthesis and ascorbate-glutathione pathway in strawberry plants. The results showed that both singlet oxygen (O2(-1)) and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) content increased in CO, NOx and SO2 treated strawberry leaves. A drastic(More)
A redispersible dry emulsion (DE) formulation of atorvastatin calcium (AC) was developed to enhance the in vitro dissolution of AC, thereby increasing its gastrointestinal absorption. The spray-drying technology was used where Plurol Oleique CC 497 was chosen as the oil phase. Effects of carriers, surfactants, and homogenizers on the characteristics of DE(More)
A piperazinylbutylisoxazole libary was designed, synthesized and screened for the binding affinities to dopamine D2, D3, and D4 receptors. Several ligands were identified to possess high binding affinity and selectivity for the D3 and D4 receptors over the D2 receptor. Compounds 6s and 6t showed K(i) values of 2.6 nM and 3.9 nM for the D3 receptor with 46-(More)
When activity of peroxidase in adult Paragonimus westermani was monitored using o-dianisidine and H2O2 as substrates, its specific activity was 1.5 times higher in excretory-secretory product (ESP) than in crude extract. The enzyme was purified by two purification steps of Sephacryl S-300 Superfine gel permeation and DEAE-Trisacryl M anion exchange(More)
The properties of an epoxide metabolite of alclofenac have been investigated in a number of in vitro and in vivo tests. Alclofenac epoxide was shown to inhibit the activity of yeast alcohol dehydrogenase and form a conjugate with cysteine. The epoxide, but not alclofenac itself, showed mutagenic effects on strains of Salmonella typhimurium sensitive to(More)
