A critical association between type II secretory phospholipase A2 (sPLA2-IIa) and established atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease has been demonstrated. However, the contribution of sPLA2-IIa to early atherosclerosis remains unknown. This study investigated the association between early-stage atherosclerosis and sPLA2-IIa in metabolic syndrome (MetS)(More)
Berberine (BBR) is one of the main constituents in Rhizoma coptidis and it has widely been used for the treatment of diabetic nephropathy. The aims of the study were to investigate the effects and mechanism of action of berberine on renal damage in diabetic rats. Diabetes and hyperglycaemia were induced in rats by a high-fat diet and intraperitoneal(More)
Cell penetrating peptides (CPPs) are promising tools for transducing presynthesized therapeutic molecules which possess low membrane permeability. The poor efficiency of cellular uptake and unexpected cellular localization are still the main obstacles to the development of drug delivery by using CPPs. In this study, we investigated the effect of a(More)
We have previously observed that knockout of Niemann-Pick C1-Like 1 (NPC1L1), a cholesterol transporter essential for intestinal cholesterol absorption, reduces the output of dry stool in mice. As the food intake remains unaltered in NPC1L1-knockout (L1-KO) mice, we hypothesized that NPC1L1 deficiency may alter the gut microbiome to reduce stool output.(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the improving effect of Litchi Seed Aqueous Extracts on learning and memory obstacles model and its mechanism. METHODS The learning and memory obstacles model was incluced by subcutoneous injection of D-galactose (500 mg/kg) for 8 weeks. The model group and treatment groups were given huperzine A (0.4 mg/kg) and Litchi Seed(More)
BACKGROUND During scanning of the right hypochondrium and right intercostal regions with an ultrasonic transducer, several ultrasonic images of oblique sections are obtained. It is still a challenge for ultrasonography to divide these non-conventional sections into an accurate hepatic segmentation pattern. The aim of this research was to investigate the(More)
