Prostaglandin E2 produces a transient increase in the intracellular concentration of cAMP in a human promonocytic cell line (U937). The temporal pattern consists of a rapid increase followed by a gradual decline to a new steady state. The decline phase coincides with an increase in the activity of a high affinity form of cAMP phosphodiesterase (PDE).(More)
BACKGROUND This meta-analysis investigated the association between functional COX-2 gene polymorphisms and the risk of oral cancer. METHODS Several electronic databases were searched for published studies using combinations of keywords related to COX-2 gene polymorphisms and oral cancer. After selection of relevant studies, following strict inclusion and(More)
A series of 1H-imidazol-1-yl- and 3-pyridyl-substituted 3,4-dihydroquinolin-2(1H)-ones was designed and synthesized as combined inhibitors of thromboxane (TXA2) synthase and cAMP phosphodiesterase (PDE) in human blood platelets. A number of structures, e.g. 4b, 7a, 7e, 13a, and 21-25, were superior to dazoxiben 26 as inhibitors of TXA2 synthase in in vitro(More)
In this paper, the effects of 3,4-dihydroxyacetophenone, DHAP (Qingxintong), an active constituent of traditional Chinese medicine, on the biosynthesis of TXA2 and PGI2 in human placental villi and umbilical artery segments of normal term pregnancy in vitro were studied by a perifusion technique. The collected fractions were assayed by radioimmunoassay for(More)
A novel approach for the fabrication of macroporous poly(glycidyl methacrylate-ethylene glycol dimethacrylate) monolith is presented. The method involved the use of sodium sulfate granules and organic solvents as co-porogens. Compared with the conventional monoliths [ML-(1-3)] using organic solvents only as a porogen, the improved monoliths [MLS-(1-3)](More)
Several [(1H-imidazol-1-yl)methyl]- and [(3-pyridinyl)methyl] pyrroles were prepared and evaluated in vitro as thromboxane synthetase inhibitors in human platelet aggregation studies. A number of structures, e.g. 10b,f,g,i (respective IC50 values: 1 microM, 50 nM, 42 nM, 44 nM) showed superior in vitro inhibition of TXA2 synthetase when compared to the(More)
The effects of enprostil (+/-)-7-[(1R*,2R*,3R*)-3-hydroxy-2-[(E)-(3R*)-3-hydroxy-4-phenoxy-1- butenyl]-5-oxocyclopentyl]-4,5-heptadienoate) were studied on cardiovascular and respiratory parameters in the dog and on hematologic parameters in the rat, monkey, and human. Anesthetized dogs were instrumented to allow measurement of heart rate, systemic blood(More)
To explore the mechanism whereby stem cell factor (SCF) and granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) jointly mobilize bone marrow stem cells (BMSCs) and promote kidney repair, male Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly assigned into 4 groups. In the treatment control group, rats were administered SCF (200 μg·kg(-1)·day(-1)) and G-CSF (50 μg·kg-1·day-1) for(More)
