Deva-5 is composed of five herbs: Gentiana decumbens L., Momordica cochinchinensis L., Hypecoum erectum L., Polygonum bistorta L., and Terminalia chebula Retz. Deva-5 and its five components were investigated for in vitro antiviral activity against(More)
Tumor necrosis factor (TNF) and tissue factor (TF) produced by monocytes and macrophages have been shown to be among the aggravating factors for chronic heart failure (CHF), because they induce cardiac dysfunction and thrombotic complications, respectively. Carvedilol, a nonselective beta-adrenoceptor antagonist with alpha(1)- adrenoceptor blockade action,(More)
Although urinary trypsin inhibitor (UTI) has been shown to inhibit tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha- production, the detailed mechanism(s) remains unclear. This study was undertaken to elucidate the molecular mechanism(s) underlying this inhibitory effect in monocytes in vitro and in rats given lipopolysaccharide (LPS). TNF-alpha production by monocytes(More)
Tissue factor (TF) plays a critical role in the pathogenesis of disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) observed in patients with septic shock. Urinary trypsin inhibitor (UTI), a multivalent protease inhibitor, is currently used for treatment of patients with septic shock. This study was undertaken to determine whether UTI reduces LPS-induced(More)
