Three new phenolic compounds 1-3 and twenty known ones 4-23 were isolated from the flowers of Bombax malabaricum. Their chemical structures were elucidated by spectroscopic analyses (IR, ESI-MS, HR-ESI-MS, 1D- and 2D-NMR) and chemical reactions. The antioxidant capacities of the isolated compounds were tested using FRAP and DPPH radical-scavenging assays,(More)
Anti-angiogenesis targeting vascular endothelial growth factor receptor-2 (VEGFR-2) has been considered as an important strategy for cancer therapy. Penduliflaworosin is a diterpenoid isolated from the plant Croton crassifolius. Our previous study showed that this diterpenoid possesses strong anti-angiogenic activity by inhibiting vessel formation in(More)
Three new ent-kaurane diterpenes, 3α-angeloyloxy-17-hydroxy-ent-kaur-15-en-19-oic acid (1), 3α-tigloyloxy-17-hydroxy-ent-kaur-15-en-19-oic acid (2) and 3α-cinnamoyloxykaur-9(11),16-dien-19-oic acid (3), along with five known compounds (4-8), were isolated from the herbs of Wedelia prostrata (Asteraceae). The structures were determined by extensive analysis(More)
BACKGROUND Local anesthetics are commonly used for the treatment of a variety of tendinopathies in combination with corticosteroids injection. The goal of this study was to evaluate the effects of lidocaine and triamcinolone acetonide (TA) on cultured rat tenocytes and to determine whether there is a synergistic effect. MATERIAL/METHODS Rat patellar(More)
