Research into multifunctional nanoparticles is focused on creating an agent for use in an all-in-one multimodal imaging system that includes diagnostic imaging, drug delivery, and therapeutic monitoring. We designed a new dual-modality tumor-targeting agent with a new tumor-targeting molecule, oleanolic acid (OA), which is derived from a natural compound(More)
Eight known compounds, lucidin (1), lucidin-omega-methyl ether (2), rubiadin (3), damnacanthol (4), 1,3,6-trihydroxy-2-methoxymethylanthraquinone (5), 3,6-dihydroxy-2-hydroxymethyl-9,10-anthraquinone (6), 1,3,6-trihydroxy-2-hydroxymethyl-9,10-anthraquinone 3-O-beta-primeveroside (7), and vanillic acid (8), were isolated from EtOAc- and n-BuOH-soluble(More)
In an ongoing project directed toward the discovery of novel treatments for diabetic complications from traditional herbal medicines, fifteen compounds, apigenin (1), apigenin-7-O-beta-D: -glucopyranoside (2), apigenin-7-O-(6''-O-acetyl)-beta-D: -glucopyranoside (3), luteolin (4), luteolin-7-O-beta-D: -glucopyranoside (5),(More)
Background and Objectives: Rapamycin has been shown to inhibit the vascular smooth muscle cell migration and proliferation that contributes to neointimal formation. We investigated whether the perivascular delivery of rapamycin in Pluronic gel could inhibit neointimal hyperplasia in a rat carotid artery model, and we tested the usefulness of carotid(More)
Previous studies have reported that KIOM-79 shows a strong inhibitory effect on AGE formation and inhibited a proinflammatory state in a murine macrophage cell line. In the present study, we investigated the effect of KIOM-79 on AGE accumulation and vascular inflammation in the aorta of Zucker diabetic fatty (ZDF) rats, a commonly used model of type 2(More)
