A series of 2-(thienyl-2-yl or -3-yl)-4-furyl-6-aryl pyridine derivatives were designed, synthesized, and evaluated for their topoisomerase I and II inhibition and cytotoxic activity against several human cancer cell lines. Compounds 10-19 showed moderate topoisomerase I and II inhibitory activity and 20-29 showed significant topoisomerase II inhibitory(More)
Tyrosol (2-(4-hydroxyphenyl)ethanol) is a well-known phenolic compound with antioxidant properties that is present in wine, olive oil, and other plant-derived products. The purpose of this study was to determine the neuroprotective effect of tyrosol in a stroke animal model. By using the transient middle cerebral artery occlusion rat model (2 h of(More)

In this letter, we propose an efficient scheme for combining scheduling and channel allocation functions in multi-channel systems such as an orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA). In our approach, the scheduling function is embedded in the channel allocation function in an implicit manner, and the implicit scheduler only translates(More)
OBJECTIVES Angelicae Tenuissimae Radix has traditionally been used for treating headache, flu-like symptoms, limb-ache and disability, and even for treating toothache. We investigated the anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect of Angelicae Tenuissimae Radix on lipopolysaccharide-induced inflammation. METHODS For this study,(More)
To investigate whether HT008-1, a prescription used in traditional Korean medicine to treat mental and physical weakness, has a neuroprotective effect on a rat model of global brain ischemia and an enhancing effect against memory deficit following ischemia. Global brain ischemia was induced for 10 min by using 4-vessel occlusion (4-VO). HT008-1 was orally(More)
