Vasodilator Activity of the Essential Oil from Aerial Parts of Pectis brevipedunculata and Its Main Constituent Citral in Rat Aorta
The essential oil of Pectis brevipedunculata (EOPB), a Brazilian ornamental aromatic grass, is characterized by its high content of citral (81.9%: neral 32.7% and geranial 49.2%), limonene (4.7%) andExpand
Oral treatment with Euterpe oleracea Mart. (açaí) extract improves cardiac dysfunction and exercise intolerance in rats subjected to myocardial infarction
BackgroundThis study was designed to evaluate the cardioprotective effects of Euterpe oleracea Mart., popularly known as “açaí”, on rats subjected to myocardial infarction (MI).MethodsHydroalcoholicExpand
Hypoglycemic Effect of the Methanol flower Extract of Piper Claussenianum and the Major Constituent 2′,6′-dihydroxy-4′-methoxychalcone in Streptozotocin Diabetic Rats
Piper claussenianum inflorescences crude methanol extract was tested for hypoglycemic effect in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats. The blood glucose levels of rats treated with methanol extractExpand
Beneficial effects of a novel agonist of the adenosine A2A receptor on monocrotaline‐induced pulmonary hypertension in rats
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is characterized by enhanced pulmonary vascular resistance, right ventricular hypertrophy and increased right ventricular systolic pressure. Here, weExpand
N-acylhydrazone derivative ameliorates monocrotaline-induced pulmonary hypertension through the modulation of adenosine AA2R activity.
BACKGROUND Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a disease that results in right ventricular (RV) dysfunction. While pulmonary vascular disease is the primary pathological focus, RV hypertrophyExpand
Antihypertensive profile of 2-thienyl-3,4-methylenedioxybenzoylhydrazone is mediated by activation of the A2A adenosine receptor.
Several N-acylhydrazone derivatives synthesized from safrole have been found to promote intense vasodilation and antihypertensive activity. The present work describes the synthesis andExpand
Pharmacological characterization of (3-thienylidene)-3,4-methylenedioxybenzoylhydrazide: a novel muscarinic agonist with antihypertensive profile.
BACKGROUND Several new bioactive compounds of the N-acylhydrazone class were developed from the safrole, a Brazilian natural product obtained from sassafras oil (Ocotea pretiosa). This workExpand
A novel Ca2+ channel antagonist reverses cardiac hypertrophy and pulmonary arteriolar remodeling in experimental pulmonary hypertension.
This work investigates the actions of LASSBio-1289, (E)-N-methyl-N'-(thiophen-3-methylene)benzo[d][1,3]dioxole-5-carbohydrazide, on monocrotaline (MCT)-induced pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH)Expand
Vasodilator and antihypertensive effects of a novel N‐acylhydrazone derivative mediated by the inhibition of L‐type Ca2+ channels
New bioactive N‐acylhydrazone derivatives synthesized from safrole previously have been found to promote intense vasodilation and antihypertensive activity. In this study, we describe the synthesisExpand
