In the present study the preventive effect of polysac-charides from the large yellow croaker swim bladder (PLYCSB) on HCl/ethanol-induced gastric injury in ICR mice was investigated. A high dose of PLYCSB (50 mg/kg) was found to reduce the levels of the serum proinflammatory cytokines interleukin (IL)-1β, IL-6, IL-8, as well as increase the levels of IL-4(More)
The therapeutic effect on HCl/ethanol induced gastric injury of Gardenia jasminoides (JXGJ-1 and JXGJ-2) were determined by a animal model. JXGJ-2 group reduced area of its gastric injury as compared to the control group, JXGJ-2 also helped in decreasing the gastric secretion volume results raised in pH value. The NO contents in serum, heart, liver, kidney(More)
Gardenia jasminoides is a plant that has been used in traditional Chinese medicine. It has four key active components (genipin gentiobioside, geniposide, crocin 1 and crocin 2). The aim of the present study was to determine the anti‑hypertension effects of Gardenia jasminoidesin vivo. The chemical composition of Gardenia jasminoides was determined using(More)
Human angiotensin-I-converting enzyme (ACE) is an important target of antihypertensive therapy, which possesses a bulky, hydrophobic pocket that is physicochemically compatible with a wide variety of peptide substrates and small-molecule ligands. Rational design of potent ACE inhibitors has long been an attractive topic in the chemical, biological and(More)
To design a releasable PEGylated TNF-α (rPEG-TNF-α), a cathepsin B-sensitive dipeptide (Val-Cit moiety) was inserted into conventional PEG-modified TNF-α (PEG-TNF-α), facilitating its clinical use for anti-tumor therapy. Comparative pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic studies showed that the half-lives of both PEGylated forms of TNF-α were ∼60-fold greater(More)
The antitumor activity of Juemingzi (Cassia tora L.) was investigated in mice that were fed various concentrations of the compound. Although mice fed a low concentration (50 mg/kg b.w.) of Juemingzi exhibited a high tumor weight, the higher feeding concentrations (100 and 200 mg/kg b.w.) were associated with lower weight tumors. The growth rate of mouse(More)
