OBJECTIVE To study on the anti-obesity effect of phillyrin in nutritive obesity mice. METHOD The alimentary obesity model was established by hyperalimentation. The wet weight of fat, fat index, number of fat cells per unit visual field, Lee's index, jejunum microvillus area, serum triglyceride and cholesterol were selected to observe the anti-obesity(More)
This study was conducted to investigate the neuroprotective effects of 20(S)-ginsenoside Rg3 on focal cerebral ischemia in rats. Middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) model in male Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) rats was employed. The behavioral tests were used to evaluate the damage to central nervous system. The infarct area of brain was assessed in the brain(More)
(2E)-2-{6-[(E)-2-carboxyvinyl]-2,3-dihydroxyphenyl}-3-(3,4-dihydroxyphenyl) propenoic acid, a novel compound designated SMND-309, is a new derivate of salvianolic acid B. The present study was designed to investigate the cardioprotective potential of SMND-309 and to elucidate the possible mechanisms on the basis of biochemical, histopathological and(More)
OBJECTIVE To discover the effect of the total flavones from Semen cuscutae (TFSC) on the kidney-yang deficiency male mouse, especially on hormone levels and the androgen receptor (AR) mRNA and protein level in the kidney and testicle. METHODS ICR male mouse were separated into six groups, and, except for the normal group, hydrocortisone was injected(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the protection effects of Pedicalaris decorm extract on oxidation lesion in mice and the effective components of Pedicalaris decorm. METHODS The total extract, BuOH soluble components and water soluble components of Pedicalaris decorm were administered (ig) 15 g.kg-1.d-1 to mice, and the oxidation injury model in mice was induced by(More)
This experimental study was aimed to evaluate the injurious effects of chronic traumatic brain injury on cortex mitochondrial function in rats. The head of rat was impacted by a metal sphere in a weight-drop device twice per day for 30 days, cortex mitochondria were isolated. Then the mitochondria membrane fluidity, swelling, respiratory function, the(More)
