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)
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)
