We screened seaweed species from Atlantic Canada for antidiabetic activity by testing extracts for alpha-glucosidase inhibitory effect and glucose uptake stimulatory activity. An aqueous ethanolic extract of Ascophyllum nodosum was found to be active in both assays, inhibiting rat intestinal alpha-glucosidase (IC50 = 77 microg/mL) and stimulating basal(More)
Persimmon leaf flavonoid has been shown to enhance brain ischemic tolerance in mice, but its mechanism of action remains unclear. The bilateral common carotid arteries were occluded using a micro clip to block blood flow for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes of ischemic preconditioning, 200, 100, and 50 mg/kg persimmon leaf flavonoid or 20 mg/kg ginaton was(More)
Tripterygium glycosides (TG) are commonly used for basic medicine in curing rheumatoid arthritis but with a high incidence of liver injury. Geniposide (GP) has broad and diverse bioactivities, but until now it is still unknown whether GP can protect against TG-induced liver injury. This study, for the first time, observed the possible protection of GP(More)
Data mining provides technical support for the modernization of traditional Chinese medicine. In this paper, we focus on the need for finding the relationship between the properties of traditional Chinese medicine. We build the database which included 717 kinds of Chinese herbal medicine, and each medicine has 21 properties. With using the technology of(More)
Quercetin (Que) is one of main compounds in Lysimachia christinae Hance (Christina loosestrife), and has both medicinal and nutritional value. Glycosides from Tripterygium wilfordii Hook.f. (léi gōng téng [the thunder duke vine]; TG) have diverse and broad bioactivities but with a high incidence of liver injury. Our previous study reported on the(More)
To investigate the effect of curcumin on cerebral ischemia in diabetic rats the effects and features. intravenous injection alloxan diabetes model, to give alloxan first seven days the tail measured blood glucose value, the election successful model rats were fed with large, medium and small doses of curcumin suspension, Shenqijiangtang suspension and the(More)
Our purpose is to study the effect of different component ratio of Astragalus Total Saponins (ATS) and Verbena Total Glycosides (VTG) on the cerebral infarction area and the serum biochemical indicators in the focal cerebral ischemia-reperfusion rat model. Compared with the model group, different component ratio of ATS and VTG could significantly improve(More)
Objective: to research the effect of Semen Euphorbiae on model of traumatic blood stasis. Method: After moulding, we measure the perimeters of the right rear leg of every group rats and record them. Meanwhile, we process the Symptom Integral. We give suitable medicine to every group rats once a day in five days, and keep the medicine adhere to skin in two(More)
To observe effect of sophora japonica total flavonoids on pancreas, kidney tissue morphology of streptozotocin-induced diabetic mice model. Mice received tail vein injection of streptozotocin (60 mg/kg) for diabetes modeling. The model mice were divided into five groups, to be respectively fed with high, middle and small doses of sophora japonica total(More)
The aim of this study was to explore the action characters of total flavonoids from MDQ on cerebral ischemic tolerance with blood stasis. Fully understanding the mechanism of action of total flavonoids from MDQ is helpful for the development of new drugs and the utilization of resources. Male Wistar rat model of blood stasis was established by injecting(More)
