Our group synthesized propane-2-sulfonic acid octadec-9-enyl-amide (N15), a novel peroxisome proliferator activated receptor alpha (PPARα) agonist. Because PPARα activation is associated with inflammation control, we hypothesize that N15 may have anti-inflammatory effects. We investigated the effect of N15 on the regulation of inflammation in THP-1 cells(More)
Inflammation plays a pivotal role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-alpha (PPAR-α) and cannabinoid receptor 2 (CB2) crucially impact the modulation of inflammation. N-Oleoylethanolamine (OEA), a natural agonist of PPAR-α, can also up-regulate the expression of CB2 in human umbilical vein endothelial cells(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the nerve plane sparing radical hysterectomy (NPSRH) with conventional radical hysterectomy (CRH) in terms of postoperative bladder function and prognosis. METHODS One hundred and two patients with International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) stage Ib1-IIa2 cervical cancer were treated by open NPSRH (study group) from(More)
Wedelolactone (WDL) is a natural compound derived from Chinese herbal medicine Eclipta prostrate L, and has been reported to exhibit various effects potentially beneficial for human health. However, the possible preventive effects of WDL toward vascular remodeling and mechanisms involved have not been investigated to date. In this study, we investigated the(More)
