Previously, we reported that Nardostachys jata-mansi (NJ) attenuated cerulein-induced mild acute pancreatitis (AP). In the present study, we investigated the ability of NJ to ameliorate severe acute pancreatitis (SAP) induced by a choline-deficient diet supplemented with ethionine (CDE). An NJ extract was orally administered ad libitum via the water during(More)
OBJECTIVES We aimed to evaluate the anti-inflammatory and inhibitory effects of Lithospermum erythrorhizon (LE) on cerulein-induced acute pancreatitis (AP) in a mouse model. METHODS Acute pancreatitis was induced via intraperitoneal injection of cerulein (50 μg/kg) every hour for 6 times. In the LE, water extract (100, 250, or 500 mg/kg) was administered(More)
It has been previously shown that Nardostachys jatamansi (NJ) exhibits anti-inflammatory properties against lipopolysaccharide (LPS) challenges. However, the potency of NJ constituents against LPS-induced inflammatory responses has not been examined. In this present study, we determined which NJ extract fractions exhibit inhibitory effects against(More)
