To study interaction and dose-related effects of mixed cypermethrin and methyl parathion on endocrine and immune functions, 120 Wistar rats were divided randomly into six groups of ten male and ten female rats, respectively, at the age of 2 months. All groups were force-fed every 2 days for 30 days with cypermethrin 0.0, 8.0, 0.0, 8.0, 1.8, 0.4 mg/kg bw and(More)
A high-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method is described for the simultaneous determination of honokiol and magnolol in rat plasma. The plasma was deproteinized with acetonitrile which contained an internal standard (diphenyl) and was separated from the aqueous layer by adding sodium chloride. Honokiol and magnolol are extracted into the(More)
OBJECTIVES To examine contextual and individual demographical predictors of smoking and exposure to second-hand smoke (SHS) in a tobacco-cultivating rural area of southwest China. METHODS A cross-sectional survey of 4070 consenting individuals aged 18 years or more was conducted in 2010. Information on demographical characteristics, tobacco smoking status(More)
This paper describes a rapid and sensitive high-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method for the determination of the concentration of tanshinone I in rat plasma, and applies the method to pharmacokinetic study. The plasma is deproteinized with acetonitrile containing an internal standard (estradiolbenzoate). The HPLC assay is carried out using a(More)
Organic anion transporters (OATs) have been proved to play important roles in the membrane transport of numerous potentially toxic xenobiotics, drugs, and endogenous metabolites. In general, OATs substrates can compete with one another for the transporter to mutually decrease renal secretion and thus delay the clearance and prolong the duration of action of(More)
Quantification of paeonol, the principal bioactive component of Moutan cortex, in rat plasma following oral administration of Moutan cortex decoction was achieved by using a simple and sensitive high-performance liquid chromatographic method. The calibration curves for paeonol were linear in both the low (25-200 ng/mL) and the high concentration range(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of Pluronic F68 and Labrasol on the intestinal absorption and pharmacokinetics of rifampicin. Intestinal permeability of rifampicin with or without excipients was evaluated by an in situ single-pass perfusion method. A high-performance liquid chromatographic method was applied to study the(More)
CONTEXT Yin-Zhi-Huang (YZH), a prescription of traditional Chinese medicine, is widely used to treat neonatal jaundice or cholestasis. OBJECTIVE This study investigates the regulatory effect of YZH on the localization and expression of organic anion transporting polypeptides 2 (Oatp2), Na(+)-taurocholate co-transporting polypeptide (Ntcp),(More)
A simple, rapid, and accurate method for the separation and determination of honokiol and magnolol in Magnolia officinalis and related herbal medicines was developed by combination of flow injection (FI) and capillary zone electrophoresis (CZE). The analysis was carried out using an unmodified fused-silica capillary (50-microm I.D.; total length 7.5 cm;(More)
