OBJECTIVES Hypertensive heart disease is a constellation of abnormalities that includes cardiac fibrosis in response to elevated blood pressure, systolic and diastolic dysfunction. The present study was undertaken to examine the effect of sinapic acid on high blood pressure and cardiovascular remodeling. METHODS An experimental hypertensive animal model(More)
In recent years, the role of endothelial dysfunction (ED) and excessive oxidative stress in the development of cardiovascular diseases has been highlighted. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the effect of diosgenin, an antioxidant on chronic renal failure (CRF) induced vascular dysfunction. CRF was induced by feeding the rats with a diet(More)
Disturbed fluid flow or modulated shear stress is associated with vascular conditions such as atherosclerosis, thrombosis, and aneurysm. In vitro simulation of the fluid flow around the plaque micro-environment remains a challenging approach. Currently available models have limitations such as complications in protocols, high cost, incompetence of(More)
Reperfusion of ischemic tissue leads to the generation of oxygen derived free radicals which plays an important role in cellular damage. Objective of the current study is to evaluate the cardio-protective and antioxidant effect of diosmin on ischemia-reperfusion related cardiac dysfunction, oxidative stress and apoptosis. Diosmin (50 and 100 mg/kg body(More)
The present study was designed to evaluate the effect of sinapic acid, a bioactive phenolic acid on high blood pressure associated cardiac dysfunction, kidney fibrosis and lipid alterations in N(ω)-nitro-l-arginine methyl ester hydrochloride (l-NAME) induced hypertensive rats. Sinapic acid was administered to rats orally at a dosage of 40 mg/kg everyday for(More)
Since the conception of thalidomide as a teratogen, approximately 30 hypotheses have been put forward to explain the developmental toxicity of the molecule. However, no systems biology approach has been taken to understand the phenomena yet. The proposed work was aimed to explore the mechanism of thalidomide toxicity in developing chick embryo in the(More)
Since there is no precise therapy for treating vascular calcification by directly targeting the vascular wall, we aim to unveil novel drug targets through mining the molecular effect of a high phosphate environment on vascular cells through computational methods. Here, we hypothesize that manipulation of the vascular pathogenic network by small molecule(More)
Vascular calcification due to elevated phosphate levels is the major contributor of cardiovascular dysfunction. The oxidative stress and gene expression events modulate the transdifferentiation of vascular smooth muscle cells into osteogenic phenotype. This present study intends to evaluate the dose-dependent effect of diosgenin, an antioxidant on high(More)
The present study was aimed to investigate the antihyperlipidemic and renoprotective potential of valproic acid against N(ω)-nitro-L arginine methyl ester hydrochloride (L-NAME) induced hypertension in male albino Wistar rats. In hypertensive rats, mean arterial pressure (MAP), kidney weight, levels of oxidative stress markers in tissues were increased.(More)
Omega-3 fatty acids are clinically useful and the two marine omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are prevalent in fish and fish oils. Omega-3 fatty acid formulations should undergo a rigorous regulatory step in order to obtain United States Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) approval as prescription drug. In(More)
