Stimulation of osteogenic activity in human osteoblast cells by edible Uraria crinita.
Results show that U. crinita and its active compounds may have the potential to stimulate bone formation and regeneration. Expand
The Immuno-Regulatory Effects of Schisandra chinensis and Its Constituents on Human Monocytic Leukemia Cells
Two major lignans, schizandrin and Gom A from S. chinensis enhance cytokine release by THP-1 cells and this effect occurs through mRNA upregulation, which may be therapeutically beneficial by promoting humoral and cell-mediated immune responses. Expand
Anti-Inflammatory and Free Radial Scavenging Activities of the Constituents Isolated from Machilus zuihoensis
Results suggested for the first time that the new compound 9 and other constituents isolated from M. zuihoensis have potential anti-inflammatory and superoxide anion scavenging effects and may be useful for treating various inflammatory diseases. Expand
Comprehensive LC-MS/MS-based phytochemical perspectives and osteogenic effects of Uraria crinita.
A novel comprehensive phytochemical strategy using liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) for quality control of this functional food promoted osteogenesis-related stages and upregulated the gene expressions in a dose-dependent manner. Expand
Regulation of cytokine production by treating with Chinese tonic herbs in human peripheral blood mononuclear and human acute monocytic leukemia cells.
This study is the first to use high-throughput multiplexed flow cytometric method to analyze cytokine regulatory effects of herbal extracts in human peripheral blood mononuclear cells and human acute monocytic leukemia cell line, THP-1. Expand
