Magnolol, a tradition Chinese herb, displays an array of activities including antifungal, antibacterial, and antioxidant effects. To investigate the protective effect of magnolol on lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced acute lung injury (ALI) in mice. ALI was induced in mice by intratracheal instillation of LPS (1 mg/kg). The mice received intratracheal(More)
Hypokalemia has been associated with the taking of gossypol, a potential oral antifertility drug for men. Because the frequency of this response differed in different parts of the world, this study was done to learn if "normal" serum [K+] also differed. [K+] was measured by flame photometry in serum from apparently normal men from Austria (n = 30), China(More)
The safety and efficacy of gossypol continues to be controversial. The aim of this study was to evaluate gossypol as a contraceptive pill for men at doses lower than those previously prescribed and in men from various ethnic origin. A total of 151 men from Brazil, Nigeria, Kenya, and China were divided into two groups. Both groups received 15 mg(More)
AIM To ascertain whether the side effects of gossypol, hypokalemia and irreversibility, could be avoided on dose reduction. METHODS Seventy-seven male volunteers were divided into 3 groups: control (22 cases), 10 mg gossypol (29 cases) and 12.5 mg (26 cases). Serum levels of testosterone, FSH and LH were measured by RIA and potassium by flame photometry.(More)
AIM To study the effects of droloxifene on apoptosis and the expression of Bax and Bcl-2 protein in corpus luteum of pseudopregnant rats. METHODS HE staining was used to examine the histological changes of ovaries. Apoptosis detection in situ was performed with TUNEL method. Expression of Bax and Bcl-2 protein was observed by immunohistochemistry(More)
AIM To investigate the effects of droloxifene on apoptosis of luteal cells in pregnant rats, and analyze the possible relationships between the expression of C-myc, Bax, Bcl-2 protein in corpus luteum and apoptosis of luteal cells induced by droloxifene. METHODS Pregnant rats were treated orally with droloxifene 20 mg . kg-1 on d 2. Ovaries were collected(More)
Droloxifene is a tamoxifen derivative whose effects in the therapy of human breast cancer and postmenopausal osteoporosis have been studied widely. We had found that droloxifene could induce apoptosis of luteal cells of rat in vitro, but its mechanisms were unknown. In the present study, the expression of c-myc, bax and bcl-2 mRNA in cultured rat luteal(More)
Controlling the transmission of infectious diseases by impressions, metals and dental casts in dental hospitals remains a challenge. Current disinfection methods have various drawbacks. This study introduced and provided a preliminary evaluation of the feasibility of using ultrasonically nebulised, electrolysed oxidising water (UNEOW) as a new infection(More)
