Piper Sarmentosum Increases Nitric Oxide Production in Oxidative Stress: A Study on Human Umbilical Vein Endothelial Cells
OBJECTIVE: Nitric oxide produced by endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) possesses multiple anti-atherosclerotic properties. Hence, enhanced expression of eNOS and increased Nitric oxide levelsExpand
Flavonoids of Piper sarmentosum and its cytoprotective effects against oxidative stress
Abnormalities in endothelial cell structure and function may lead to diseases such as thrombosis and atherosclerosis. Oxidative stress plays an important role in the pathogenesis of variousExpand
Evaluation of Finger Photoplethysmography Fitness Index on Young Women with Cardiovascular Disease Risk Factors
The use of photoplethysmography (PPG) as one of cardiovascular disease (CVD) marker has got more attention due to its simplicity, noninvasive and portable characteristics. Two new markers had beenExpand
Role of Rutin on Nitric Oxide Synthesis in Human Umbilical Vein Endothelial Cells
Nitric oxide (NO), produced by endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS), is a major antiatherogenic factor in the blood vessel. Oxidative stress plays an important role in the pathogenesis of variousExpand
Effects of Swedish Massage Therapy on Blood Pressure, Heart Rate, and Inflammatory Markers in Hypertensive Women
Swedish Massage Therapy (SMT) is known for its therapeutic relaxation effects. Hypertension is associated with stress and elevated endothelial inflammatory markers. This randomized control trialExpand
Antihypertensive effect of piper sarmentosum in L-NAME-induced hypertensive rats
Hypertension is one of the risk factors for cardiovascular diseases and has been associated with about 13% of global deaths worldwide. Oxidative stress and reduced nitric oxide (NO) bioavailabilityExpand
