[6]-Gingerol is one of the pungent components in ginger which has been found to possess various pharmacological effects. However, there is insufficient information on the properties of [6]-gingerol based on controlled pharmacokinetic studies. The aim of this study was to clarify distribution profiles of [6]-gingerol in blood and biological tissues of(More)
Previous studies have indicated that borneol has double side effects on the central nervous system (CNS), but the mechanism is unknown. The aim of this study was to clarify the relationship between excitation ratio [contents of excitatory amino acids (AAs) versus that of inhibitory] and the content of natural borneol after a single oral dose. Mice were(More)
Aim. To study the pharmacokinetics of dihydroartemisinin (DHA) in Artekin (compound dihydroartemisinin) tablets in Chinese healthy volunteers. Methods. Eighteen healthy volunteers (9 males, 9 females) received Artekin tablets for oral administration. The plasma samples of DHA were analysed by liquid-liquid extraction and determined by HPLC/ESI/MS. Results.(More)
A new liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) method operated in the negative electrospray ionization (ESI) switching mode has been developed and validated for the simultaneous determination of esculin and its metabolite esculetin in rat plasma. After addition of internal standards scopoletin, the plasma sample was pretreated by(More)
A simple, rapid and sensitive method for the determination of geniposidic acid (GSA) in rat plasma was developed using liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS). Geniposide (GS) was used as the internal standard. Rat plasma pretreated by solid-phase extraction (SPE) was analyzed by LC-MS/MS with negative ion mode electrospray ionization(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe anticoagulative effect and antiplatelet aggregation effect of the combination of Hirudo and Tabanus with different dose-ratio on rat model of blood stasis syndrome. METHODS The rat model of blood stasis syndrome was established by subcutaneous injection of adrenaline combined with stimulation of icy water. Then prothrombin time (PT),(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the therapeutic effect of Wuling Powder extract on rats with renal hypertension and to evaluate the influence of it on the volume of urine and the concentrations of Na(+), K(+), Cl(-). METHODS Reformed Gold-blatt hypertension rat model (G-2K1C) was established. The rats were divided into 6 groups as follows: sham-operation group;(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the effects of Rhizoma Zingiberis and Pericarpium Citri Reticulatae extracts on acute myocardial ischemia rats and explore the mechanism. METHODS The model of myocardial ischemia in rats was established by ligating the front descending anterior branch of the coronary artery. With Fufang Danshen Pill as positive control drug,the(More)
Borneol is a commonly used herbal medication in China and Japan. Previous studies have indicated that borneol could reduce the plasma concentrations of oneself and concomitant drugs, and its first-pass metabolism could be catalyzed by the cytochrome P450 3A (CYP3A) enzyme as well. The impact of borneol on CYP3A activity and efficacy in influencing the(More)
A sensitive and specific liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometric (LC-MS-MS) method was developed for the determination and pharmacokinetics of amygdalin in rats. Rat plasma pretreated by solid-phase extraction was analyzed by LC-MS-MS with negative electrospray ionization in the multiple reaction monitoring mode. Amygdalin and geniposide [the(More)
