BACKGROUND Gingerol is the generic term for pungent constituents in ginger, which has been reported to be effective for inhibiting vomiting. We attempted to investigate the antiemetic effect of gingerol and its effective mechanism on substance P and NK(1) receptors in minks. METHODS The antiemetic effect of gingerol was investigated during a 6-hour(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the antiemetic effect of gingerol and its multi-targets effective mechanism on 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT), dopamine (DA) and substance P (SP). The antiemetic effect of gingerol was investigated on a vomiting model of mink induced by cisplatin (7.5 mg . kg(-1), i.p.) in 6 h observation. The levels of 5-HT, DA and distribution of(More)
ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE Xiao-Ban-Xia-Tang (XBXT), a traditional Chinese herbal medicine, has been used in China for more than 2000 years, and proved to be effective on various cases of vomiting in the clinic. OBJECTIVE To investigate the antiemetic effect of XBXT on cisplatin-induced acute and delayed emesis and its effective mechanism on(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the hypothesis that fluid resuscitation alters cytokine gene expression after experimental murine peritonitis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Mice underwent cecal ligation and puncture (CLP) to induce peritonitis and were randomized to receive variable amounts of normal saline (0, 0.25, 1.0 ml. subcutaneously) and serum (0 or 0.1 mL) after(More)
To identify a safe and effective Impaired Glucose Tolerance (IGT) intervention program using Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) supported by Standard Health Care Advice (SHCA) for the evidence-based TCM intervention in IGT and evidence-based prevention of type 2 diabetes. A total of 510 IGT patients were randomly assigned into either control or TCM(More)
ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE Xiao-Ban-Xia-Tang (XBXT), a traditional Chinese herbal medicine, has been used in China for more than 2000 years, and proved to be effective in various cases of vomiting in the clinic. OBJECTIVE To investigate the inhibitive effect of XBXT on cisplatin-induced pica behaviour and its effective mechanism on obestatin, CCK and(More)
BACKGROUND Daisaikoto (DSKT), a classical traditional Chinese herbal formula, has been used for treating digestive diseases for 1800 years in China. Therefore, in this study, we are going to investigate the effect of DSKT on diabetic fatty liver rats induced by a high-fat diet and streptozotocin (STZ), and the effects of DSKT on silent mating type(More)
BACKGROUND Gingerol, the generic term for pungent constituents in ginger, has been used for treating vomiting in China. We are going to investigate the mechanisms of inhibitive effect of gingerol on cisplatin-induced pica behaviour by studying on both peripheral and central levels, and the effects of gingerol on homeostasis of dopamine (DA) transmission:(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the effects of Tangweian granule on 5-HT(2A)R in rat model with diabetic gastroparesis (DGP). METHOD The rats with diabetic gastroparesis induced by injecting alloxan and giving 200% Radix Rehmanniae preparata were divided into four groups randomly: Tangweian high dosage group, Tangweian low dosage group, motilium control group and(More)
