We successfully established an oxidant damage of mimetic aging model using mice induced by D-galactose, and the mimetic aging model is relative to free radical and the accumulation of waste substances in metabolism. The animals were divided into 3 groups: (1) phosphate-buffered saline (PBS); (2) 1% D-galactose; (3) 5% D-galactose by subcutaneous injection(More)
Accumulating evidence indicates that the high blood pressure (BP) is a potent risk factor for dementia in the elderly. In line with this theory, we had found the mixture of Chinese herbs (TGD) which were traditionally used to treat hypertension, could enhance the cognitive function. The aim of this study was to decrease the number of herbs used from 11(More)
Recent findings of a link between high blood pressure (BP) and dementia have given new prospects. The aim of this study is to analyze a mixture of Chinese herbs, Tianma Gouteng Decoction (TGD), which was traditionally used to treat hypertension, and investigate its relation to ameliorating cognitive impairment. We discovered that TGD also had properties(More)
The LPSBD0 and LPSBD2 peptides, two β-hairpin cationic amphiphilic peptides, exhibit membrane damage and anti-proliferative activities on the A549 (lung cancer) and Hep3B (hepatoma) cell lines were characterized in this study. Light microscopy observations indicate that both peptides induce the production of debris in the cell cultures. The amount of this(More)
