In the present study, the antiplatelet effect and its mechanism of a new synthetic compound YD-3 [1-benzyl-3-(ethoxycarbonylphenyl)-indazole] were examined. YD-3 inhibited the aggregation of washed human platelets caused by protease-activated receptor (PAR) 4 agonist peptide GYPGKF (IC50 = 0.13 +/- 0.02 microM), but had no or little effect on that by(More)
In activated macrophages, large amounts of nitric oxide (NO) are generated by inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS). This is an important mechanism in macrophage-induced cytotoxicity and inflammation. In the present study, a synthetic carbazole compound, 9-(2-chlorobenzyl)-9H-carbazole-3-carbaldehyde (LCY-2-CHO), was found to have an inhibitory effect on(More)
Utilization of curcumin has been limited due to its poor oral bioavailability. Oral bioavailability of hydrophobic compounds might be elevated via encapsulation in artificial seed oil bodies. This study aimed to improve oral bioavailability of curcumin via this encapsulation. Unfortunately, curcumin was indissoluble in various seed oils. A mixed dissolvent(More)
