Ginsenoside Rd is a primary constituent of the ginseng rhizome and has been shown to participate in the regulation of diabetes and in tumor formation. Reports also show that ginsenoside Rd exerts anti-oxidative effects by activating anti-oxidant enzymes. Treatment with ginsenoside Rd decreased nitric oxide and prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) in lipopolysaccharides(More)
To investigate effects of aging on adhesion molecules (AMs), the present study assessed the expressions of aortic P-selectin and vascular adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1) in young (6-month-old) and old (24-month-old) Fischer 344 rats fed ad libitum (AL) or calorie-restricted diets. Results showed increased levels of aortic P-selectin and VCAM-1 in the old AL(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Oxaliplatin hypersensitivity is a well-known adverse reaction but the prevalence varies and data for frequency and clinical features have not been reported for Korea. Here we evaluates the prevalence and risk factors for hypersensitivity reactions to oxaliplatin after chemotherapy. METHODS Clinical information on all patients treated(More)
Energy restriction (ER) and dietary fish oil (FO) are known to reduce the severity of glomerulonephritis and increase the lifespan of lupus-prone (NZB x NZW) F1 (B/W) mice. In the present study, mice were fed either ad libitum or energy-restricted (a 40 % lower energy intake than the diet ad libitum), semi-purified diets containing 5 % maize oil or 5 % fish(More)
The basis of our recently proposed "molecular inflammation theory of aging" is that activated inflammatory transcription factors, including versatile NF-kappaB, occur widespread in the organism during aging. NF-kappaB plays a key role in pro-inflammatory gene expression, such as cyclooxygenase (COX). Aspirin is one of the most commonly used non-steroidal(More)
Proanthocyanidins (PAs) are polymer chains of flavonoids known to have a high free radical scavenging capacity. However, their efficacy for use in dermatological health has not been fully explored. In the present study, we investigated the inhibitory property of PAs on melanogenesis and oxidative stress of cultured B16F10 melanoma cells (B16 cells)(More)
