Paraoxonase-1 (PON1), a high-density-lipoprotein- (HDL-) associated enzyme, has the potential to protect against atherogenesis. We examine the relationships between plasma PON1 activity and the progression of atherosclerosis as well as coronary artery disease (CAD). Fasting blood samples were collected from female apolipoprotein E-deficient (apoE(-/-)) mice(More)
INTRODUCTION Sodium ferulate (SF) is a natural component of traditional Chinese herbs. Our previous study shows that SF has a protective effect on osteoarthritis (OA). The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of SF on the TNF/TNF receptor (TNFR) signal transduction pathway of rat OA chondrocytes. METHODS Primary rat articular chondrocytes(More)
After publication of our recent article [1], it was brought to our attention that an inaccurate observation was made in the Results section. We stated that diff erent concentrations of SF have no eff ect on normal chondrocytes viability. However, Figure 1 demonstrates that SF concen-tra tions 500 and 1000 μmol/L signifi cantly increase chon-drocytes(More)
