The simultaneous use of drugs with different mechanisms of anti-inflammatory action is a strategy for achieving effective control of inflammation while minimizing dose-related side effects. Choline was described to potentiate the antinociceptive action of aspirin at small doses in several inflammatory pain models. However, these findings are only limited to(More)
Aim:Tolsultazolamide, a novel carbonic anhydrase inhibitor, is designed for the prophylaxis and treatment of acute mountain sickness. The aim of this study was to investigate the pharmacokinetics, tissue distribution, and excretion characteristics of tolsultazolamide and the sex difference in pharmacokinetics in rats.Methods:For pharmacokinetic study, rats(More)
OBJECTIVE High altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE), a life-threatening disease, has no biological markers used for the routine prevention, diagnosis and treatment. The aim of this study was to identify serum proteins differentially expressed in patients with HAPE for discovering essential biomarkers. METHODS A complete serum proteomic analysis was performed(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the functional and morphological structure changes in the gut barrier of rats induced by cholinesterase inhibitor VX poisoning, and the therapeutic effect of benthiactzine. METHODS Forty male Wistar rats were randomly divided into five groups: normal saline control group, VX poisoning (model) group, benthiactzine 1, 3, 9 mg/kg(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES It has been demonstrated that hyperuricemia induces reno-cardiovascular damage resulting in hypertension and renal injury because of vascular endothelial dysfunction. The pathogenesis of hyperuricemia, endothelial dysfunction, hypertension, and renal injury is progressive, and develops into a vicious cycle. It is reasonable to(More)
AIMS Endothelial cells play a pivotal role in vascular intimal inflammation during cardiovascular diseases. The chemerin/ChemR23 system in endothelial cells is one of physiological mechanisms that regulate inflammatory responses. Our previous studies indicated that stimulation of non-neuronal muscarinic receptor (NNMR) improved endothelial dysfunction.(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of non-neuronal muscarinic receptors (NNMR) stimulation on atherosclerosis and endothelial cells activation. METHODS Atherosclerosis model was established in ApoE-/- mice by a high fat diet for 7 weeks. During the experimental periods, animals were received a low (7 mg/kg/d) or a high (21 mg/kg/d) dose of arecoline by(More)
Aim:To investigate the effects of iptakalim on endothelial dysfunction induced by insulin resistance (IR) and to determine whether iptakalim improved IR associated with hypertension in fructose-fed rats (FFRs) and spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs).Methods:Human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) were used for in vitro study. The levels of(More)
Aim:The non-neuronal acetylcholine system (NNAS) in endothelial cells participates in modulating endothelial function, vascular tone, angiogenesis and inflammation, thus plays a critical role in cardiovascular diseases. In this study, we used a proteomic approach to study potential downstream receptor-effectors of NNAS that were involved in regulating(More)
OBJECTIVE Endothelial apoptosis plays an important role in the initiation of atherosclerosis. It would be useful to clarify whether activation of non-neuronal muscarinic receptor (NNMR) could prevent endothelial apoptosis and atherosclerosis. We investigated the effects of NNMR activation on regulating rat aortic endothelial cells (RAECs) apoptosis induced(More)
