The purpose of this study was to develop a pH-triggered in situ gelling vehicle for ophthalmic delivery of puerarin. The effect of hydroxypropyl-beta-cyclodextrin (HP-beta-CD) on the aqueous solubility and in vitro corneal permeation of puerarin was also investigated. The puerarin solubility increased linearly and proportionally to the HP-beta-CD(More)
OBJECTIVE The color difference meter and electronic nose fingerprint analyzer were introduced to discriminate processed betel nut's different huohou and quantize empirical index during the processing of Chinese medicine. METHOD By collecting the color's and the smell's characteristic parameters of betel nut and its processed products to set up huohou's(More)
Conventional ophthalmic solutions often eliminate rapidly after administration and cannot provide and maintain an adequate concentration of the drug in the precorneal area. To solve these problems, we developed a thermosensitive in situ gelling and mucoadhesive ophthalmic drug delivery system containing puerarin based on poloxamer analogs (21% (w/v)(More)
The objective of this study was to develop an ion-activated in situ gelling vehicle for ophthalmic delivery of matrine. The rheological properties of polymer solutions, including Gelrite, alginate, and Gelrite/alginate solution, were evaluated. In addition, the effect of formulation characteristics on in vitro release and in vivo precorneal drug kinetic of(More)
The purpose of this study was to systematically optimize an ophthalmic thermosensitive poloxamer analogs gel containing puerarin that was a free flowing liquid below the room temperature and could shift to a gel with an eligible gel strength and bioadhesive force in physiological condition (dilution by the simulated tear fluid and at 35.0 degrees C). A(More)
The great potential of oridonin (ORI) for clinical application in cancer therapy is greatly limited due to its poor water-solubility. The purpose of this study was to increase the water solubility of oridonin using monomethoxy poly(ethylene glycol)-poly(epsilon-caprolactone) (MPEG-PCL) as drug carrier. The ORI-loaded MPEG-PCL micelles were prepared by thin(More)
Panaxatriol saponins (PTS), the main components extracted from Panax notoginseng, have been shown to be efficacious in the prevention and treatment of cerebrovascular diseases in China. NF-E2-related factor 2 (Nrf2), a transcription factor regulating antioxidant and cytoprotective responses to oxidative stress, has received particular attention as a(More)
BACKGROUND Increased platelet aggregation is implicated in the pathogenesis of ischemic stroke and anti-platelet strategy may contribute to its therapy. Panaxatriol saponin (PTS), the main components extracted from Panax notoginseng, has been shown to be efficacious in the prevention and treatment of ischemic stroke in China. The aim of this study is to(More)
Melatonin is a widely known hormone in animals. Since melatonin was discovered in plants, more and more studies highlight its involvement in a wide range of physiological processes including plant development and stress responses. Many advances have been made in the terms of melatonin-mediated abiotic stress resistance and innate immunity in plants,(More)
Herbalogical textual study indicated "Guanzhong" recorded in Bencaojing at Han Dynasty had pteridophyte characters. In the period of Wei and Jin Dynasties, the name of "Guanzhong" was really belonged to spermatophyte. Since Southern and Northern Dynasties, fern has been the main source of "Guanzhong" in which Woowardia japonica was used longer than others.
