The present study was designed to evaluate the effect of ginsenoside Rb3 on myocardial injury and heart function impairment induced by isoproterenol in rats. To induce myocardial ischemia, Sprague-Dawley rats were subcutaneously injected with isoproterenol (20mg/kg). Cardiac marker enzymes and antioxidative parameters in left ventricles were measured.(More)
This study was designed to evaluate the effects of total flavonoids extracted from the leaves of Murraya paniculata (L.) Jack (TFMP) on diabetic nephropathy. High fat diet and streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats were treated with the TFMP (35 or 70 mg/kg) for 13 weeks. Changes of renal function parameters were examined at the end of administration. Some(More)
Oxidative stress is significant in the pathogenesis of cerebral ischemia. Panax quinquefolium 20(S)‑protopanaxadiol saponins (PQDS) have been demonstrated to exhibit a variety of biological effects in the cardiovascular system as a result of their antioxidant properties. However, little is known regarding the effect of PQDS on cerebral ischemia. The purpose(More)
Juglone is a natural compound which has been isolated from Juglans mandshurica Maxim. Recent studies have shown that juglone had various pharmacological effects such as anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-cancer. However, its anti-cancer activity on human prostate cancer LNCaP cell has not been examined. Thus, the current study was designed to elucidate the(More)
20(S)-protopanaxadiol (PPD) is an extract of Panax quinquefolius L. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of PPD on the antitumor activity and toxicity of cyclo-phosphamide (CTX) in tumor-bearing mice. C57BL/6 mice bearing Lewis lung carcinoma cells were treated with PPD (50 mg/kg) alone, CTX (20 mg/kg) alone or PPD (50 mg/kg) in combination(More)
The present study was designed to investigate the effect of ginsenoside Rh1 on myocardial injury and heart function in isoproterenol-induced cardiotoxicity in rats. Sprague-Dawley rats were subcutaneously injected with isoproterenol (20 mg/kg). Cardiac marker enzymes in serum, antioxidative parameters and inflammatory cytokines in left ventricles were(More)
In this study, we investigated the cardioprotective effect of Panax quinquefolium 20(S)-protopanaxadiol saponins (PQDS) both in vivo and in vitro. An animal model of acute myocardial infarction was induced by permanent ligation of the left anterior descending coronary artery in Sparague Dawley rats. Neonatal rat cardiomycocytes were used to examine the(More)
CONTEXT Panax ginseng C. A. Mey (Araliaceae) has been widely used in clinic for treatment of cardiovascular diseases in China. Ginsenoside Rb3 is the main chemical component of Panax ginseng. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of ginsenoside Rb3 on myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury in rats. METHODS Sprague--Dawley rats were(More)
Acanthopanax senticosides B is a monomer of Acanthopanax senticosus saponins. Previous reports showed that Acanthopanax senticosus saponins exhibit antioxidant action and cardiac protection. However, whether Acanthopanax senticosides B has cardiac protection remains unknown. In this study, we investigated the effect of Acanthopanax senticosides B on(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of Acanthopanax senticosus saponins (ASS) on oxidative damage induced by hydrogen peroxide (H2O2 ) in cardiomyocytes. METHOD The cardiomyocytes were induced to oxidative damaged by exposed to H2O2. We evaluated the level of oxidative injury through morphology change, the survival rate, the activity of lactate(More)
