OBJECTIVE Baicalin reduces the severity of severe acute pancreatitis (SAP) in a rat model. This study was carried out to examine the effect of baicalin on TNF-alpha mRNA, caspase-3 and P-selectin protein expression in the pancreas of rats with SAP. METHODS Rats with SAP were randomly assigned to untreated, baicalin-treated, octreotide-treated and(More)
BACKGROUND To investigate the effects of Baicalin and Octreotide on inflammatory mediators and pancreatic acinar cells apoptosis of rats with severe acute pancreatitis (SAP). METHODS SD rats were randomly divided into sham operated group (I group), model control group (II group), Baicalin treated group (III group) and Octreotide treated group (IV group).(More)
PURPOSE To study the protecting effects of dexamethasone on thymus of rats with severe acute pancreatitis (SAP). METHODS The SAP rats were randomly assigned to the model group and dexamethasone-treated group, the other normal healthy rats were assigned to the sham operation group. The rat survival, thymus pathological changes, apoptotic index, as well as(More)
PURPOSE To observe the protecting effects and mechanisms of Baicalin and Octreotide on heart injury in rats with severe acute pancreatitis (SAP). METHODS The SAP rat models were randomly divided into the model group, Baicalin-treated group, Octreotide treated group, and sham operation group. The contents of some inflammatory indexes in blood were(More)
We investigated the effects of Baicalin and Octreotide on the levels of endotoxin and TNF-α in blood and the effects of apoptotic changes in multiple organs of SAP rats, and explored the underlying therapeutic mechanisms of Baicalin and Octreotide. In this study, 135 SAP rats were randomly divided into model control, Baicalin treated and Octreotide treated(More)
Long-term survival of uncemented hip components is dependent upon successful biological fixation. This study examined a new prosthetic surface treatment consisting of a highly porous open structure of commercially pure titanium, Tritanium Dimensionalized Metal; its overall porosity is approximately 65-70%. With the use of an implantable chamber in dogs, the(More)
Although high density lipoprotein (HDL) improves the functions of endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs), the effect of HDL ApoAI mimetic peptide reverse-D-4F (Rev-D4F) on EPC mobilization and repair of EPC dysfunctions remains to be studied. In this study, we investigated the effects of Rev-D4F on peripheral blood cell subpopulations in C57 mice treated with(More)
This study aims to longitudinally assess the effect of oxytocin on bone and bone fat masses using micro-CT, in vivo magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS), and histopathological adipocyte quantification. Early in vivo oxytocin (OT) treatment to the osteoporosis (OP) rabbit model may reliably inhibit bone degeneration and reduce bone marrow fat accumulation(More)
Tian Hua Fen (THF) was first recorded as a medicine for reestablishing menstruation in "Quian Jin Yi Fang" (about 682 A.D.) and as an abortifacient in IvTai Ping Sheng Hui Fang" (992 A.D.). THF, prepared from the root tuber of Trichosanthes kirilowii Maxim (Cucurbitaceae), had been used locally in admixture with several other herbal ingredients with severe(More)
