BACKGROUND Serum asialoglycoproteins concentration are increased in patients with hepatic disease. We developed an antibody-lectin sandwich assay that is sensitive and specific to measure asialo-alpha(1)-acid glycoprotein (AsAGP) concentration in human serum and evaluated it as a biochemical marker for hepatic disease. METHODS Serum AsAGP concentration(More)
Our previous report showed that quercetin 3-rhamnoside (Q3R) possessed antiviral activity against influenza A/WS/33 virus in vitro. The present study evaluated the effect of Q3R on influenza A/WS/33 virus infected mice. Mice orally treated with Q3R (6.25 mg/kg per dose) at 2 h before and once daily for 6 days after influenza virus infection showed(More)
Inhibition of HBsAg release against hepatitis B virus (HBV) was investigated in an aqueous extract prepared from the aerial parts (stems and leaves) of Agrimonia eupatoria. The inhibitory effect on HBsAg secretion was footed using aqueous extracts of Agrimonia eupatoria at four different temperatures (37 degrees C 45 degrees C, 55 degrees C and 60 degrees(More)
Human rhinoviruses (HRVs) are a major cause of the common cold, but there is currently, no registered clinically effective antiviral chemotherapeutic agent for treatment of diseases caused by HRVs. In this study, we examined the antiviral activity of quercetin 7-glucoside (Q7G) from Lagerstroemia speciosa against human rhinovirus 2 (HRV2) using a cytopathic(More)
The antiviral activity of 13(E)-labd-13-ene-8alpha,15-diol (1), isolated from Brachyglottis monroi, was examined against human rhinovirus 2 (HRV2) and 3 (HRV3), and the anticancer activity on human cancer cells (A549 and Hep2). Compound (1) showed strong anti-HRV2 and HRV3 activity with a 50% inhibitory concentration (IC(50)) of 2.68 and 0.87 microg/mL,(More)
Influenza viruses cause significant morbidity and mortality in humans through epidemics or pandemics. The lack of effective therapeutical treatment underlines the importance of research for new antiviral compounds. Flavonoids widely exist in the plant kingdom, and their antiviral activities against various viruses have been recently reported. In this study,(More)
Serum asialoglycoprotein (desialylated glycoproteins) concentrations have been reported to be elevated in patients with hepatic disease as compared with that of normal subjects. We recently developed a solid-phase sandwich assay for asialo alpha1-acid glycoprotein (AsAGP) as a representative of the serum asialoglycoproteins and evaluated the utility of this(More)
