A dynamical model for blood glucose concentration, using a quasi continuous sample time interval OGTT is proposed. When this quasi continuous sample OGTT is performed, there are some detectable variations on blood glucose concentrations which could be related with reported endogenous glucose release. It is proposed that blood glucose concentration(More)
Indices obtained from the second derivative of the digital volume pulse waveform have been proposed to characterize vascular aging, arterial rigidity, and the effects of vasoactive drugs. The purpose of this study was to assess the effects of manual needling of PC6 on SD(DVP) indices in healthy and untreated hypertensive subjects. AI, B:A, and D:A indices,(More)
Psacalium decompositum, commonly known as "Matarique," is a medicinal plant used in Mexico for diabetes mellitus empirical therapy. Previous studies have shown that the fructooligosaccharides (FOS) present in the roots of this plant exhibit a notable hypoglycemic effect in animal models; this effect might be associated with the attenuation of the(More)
Senna villosa (Miller) is a plant that grows in México. In traditional Mexican medicine, it is used topically to treat skin infections, pustules and eruptions and to heal wounds by scar formation. However, studies of its potential anti-inflammatory effects have not been performed. The aim of the present study was to determine the anti-inflammatory effect of(More)
Introduction. Catharanthus roseus (L.) is used in some countries to treat diabetes. The aim of this study was to evaluate the hypoglycemic activity of extracts from the flower, leaf, stem, and root in normal and alloxan-induced diabetic mice. Methods. Roots, leaves, flowers, and stems were separated to obtain organic and aqueous extracts. The blood glucose(More)
Sechium edule is traditionally used in Mexico as a therapeutic resource against renal diseases and to control high blood pressure. The purpose of this work is to evaluate the antihypertensive effect of the hydroalcoholic extract obtained from the roots of this plant, including its fractions and subfractions, on different hypertension models induced with(More)
The metabolic syndrome (MS) is a condition consisting of various metabolic abnormalities that are risk factors for developing kidney failure, cardiovascular, vascular and cerebrovascular diseases, among others. The prevalence of this syndrome shows a marked increase. The aim of this study was to investigate the pharmacological effect of Smilax(More)
