Curcumin has a wide spectrum of pharmaceutical properties such as antitumor, antioxidant, antiamyloid, and anti-inflammatory activity. However, poor aqueous solubility and low bioavailability of curcumin are major challenge in its development as a useful drug. To overcome many of these problems, curcumin-loaded long-circulating liposomes (Cur-LCL) were(More)
OBJECTIVE To prepare chitosan-modified tripterygium glycoside nanoparticles (LMWC-TG-PLA-NPs), and assess its renal targeting property in rats. METHOD Chitosan-modified tripterygium glycoside nanoparticles (LMWC-TG-PLA-NPs) were prepared by modified spontaneous emulsification solvent evaporation method, and modified with 50% deacetylated low molecular(More)
The mesaconitine and its major metabolites in the rat urine were identified by liquid chromatography and electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry. The rat urine was collected for consecutive 24 hours from the rat following intragastric infusion of mesaconitine, subsequently which were enriched and purified using solid phase extraction. The(More)
A gradient structure was produced in a pure copper plate by means of surface mechanical attrition treatment (SMAT). The microstructure of the surface layer was reduced to nanoscale and the grain size increased gradually along the depth of the treated sample. In situ transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and high resolution transmission electron microscopy(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the absorption kinetics of aconitine, mesaconitine and hypaconitine in rats after oral administration of Sini Tang powder. With cannulate portal and jugular veins cannulated (double-cannulate), conscious moving rats were orally administered Sini Tang. Then samples of portal and systemic blood were collected at(More)
This study was aimed at the transport across blood-brain barrier (BBB) of polysorbate-80 modified neurotoxin loaded polybutylcyanoacrylate nanoparticle (P-80-NT-NP) and its cytotoxicity. An in vitro model of BBB using rat brain microvascular endothelial cells (rBMECs) was established. The cytotoxicity of P-80-NT-NP was measured by the MTT assays, where(More)
