One of the earliest critical secondary complications of diabetes is the opacification of the eye lens - a condition strictly associated with diabetic cataract. The study presented here was designed to investigate the effect of Ginkgo biloba extract (GbE), rutin and quercetin on streptozotocin (STZ) induced diabetic cataract (DC) rats. Ten weeks after administration of GbE, rutin and quercetin, the opacity of diabetic rats' lenses was graded under a slit lamp. Then, the levels of malondialdehyde… Expand
Chrysin Reduces Oxidative Stress but Does Not Affect Polyol Pathway in the Lenses of Type 1 Diabetic Rats
TLDR
It can be concluded that chrysin reveals antioxidative activity in the lenses but shows no antihyperglycemic or antiglycation properties. Expand
Effects of Ginkgo biloba on Diseases Related to Oxidative Stress.
TLDR
Ginkgo biloba can be a low-cost alternative to the therapeutic approach of several pathologies since it acts in the prevention, treatment, and inhibition of several complications of common comorbidities. Expand
Quercetin inhibited mesangial cell proliferation of early diabetic nephropathy through the Hippo pathway.
TLDR
The results revealed that quercetin inhibited MC proliferation in high glucose-treated mouse glomerular MCs and in DN via reactivation of the Hippo pathway. Expand
Quercetin improves nonalcoholic fatty liver by ameliorating inflammation, oxidative stress, and lipid metabolism in db/db mice
TLDR
Quercetin might be a potentially effective drug for the treatment of T2DM‐induced NAFLD, and mechanism studies showed that farnesoid X receptor 1/Takeda G‐protein‐coupled receptor 5 signaling pathways was involved in quercet in regulation of lipid metabolism in T2 DM‐inducedNAFLD. Expand
WJ-39, an Aldose Reductase Inhibitor, Ameliorates Renal Lesions in Diabetic Nephropathy by Activating Nrf2 Signaling
TLDR
WJ-39 and its mechanism of amelioration of renal lesions in DN rats by reducing renal inflammation, oxidative stress, and fibrosis injury could be an effective strategy for the treatment of DN. Expand
Quercetin protects islet β-cells from oxidation-induced apoptosis via Sirt3 in T2DM
TLDR
Quercetin protected islet β-cells from oxidation-induced apoptosis via Sirt3 in T2DM, which would be beneficial to develop new strategies for preventing β-cell failure in T1DM. Expand
Aldose Reductase: a cause and a potential target for the treatment of diabetic complications.
TLDR
The article overviews the aldose reductase as the causative agent and a potential target for the treatment of diabetic complications and several inhibitors, like derivatives of carboxylic acid, spirohydantoin, phenolic derivatives, etc. could prevent diabetic complications. Expand
Investigation of expression and effects of TGF-β1 and MMP-9 in lens epithelial cells of diabetic cataract rats
TLDR
The increased expression of MMP-9 and TGF-β1 may play an important role in the occurrence and development of diabetic cataract. Expand
Repression of Polyol Pathway Activity by Hemidesmus indicus var. pubescens R.Br. Linn Root Extract, an Aldose Reductase Inhibitor: An In Silico and Ex Vivo Study
Abstract Development of diabetic cataract is mainly associated with the accumulation of sorbitol via the polyol pathway through the action of Aldose reductase (AR). Hence, AR inhibitors areExpand
Polyphenol-enriched fraction of Vaccinium uliginosum L. protects selenite-induced cataract formation in the lens of Sprague-Dawley rat pups
TLDR
FH showed a preventive effect against cataract formation by inhibiting m-calpain-mediated proteolysis and oxidative stress in the lens and suggest that FH could be a potential anticataract agent in age-related cataracts. Expand

Preventative Effects of Ginkgo biloba Extract (EGb761) on High Glucose‐Cultured Opacity of Rat Lens
TLDR
It is suggested that EGb761 has protective effects on several pharmacological targets in the progress of diabetic cataract and is a potential drug for the prevention of diabeticCataract. Expand
Ginkgo biloba extract prevents against apoptosis induced by high glucose in human lens epithelial cells
TLDR
GBE prevents HLEC from high glucose-induced apoptosis through inhibiting oxidative stress, reducing the ratio of Bax to Bcl-2, and decreasing the activity of caspase-3, therefore, GBE has a potential protective effect against diabetic cataract formation. Expand
Glycine therapy inhibits the progression of cataract in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats
TLDR
The results indicated that the oral administration of Gly significantly delayed the onset and the progression of diabetic cataract in rats due to its antiglycating action and to a lesser extent, due to the inhibition of oxidative stress and polyol pathway. Expand
Effects of Ginkgo biloba on prevention of development of experimental diabetic nephropathy in rats
TLDR
GbE has protective effects on several pharmacological targets in the progress of DN and is a potential drug for the prevention of early DN. Expand
Lutein prevents cataract development and progression in diabetic rats
TLDR
The combined treatment with lutein and insulin is useful in preventing the development of cataracts in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats, supporting its utility in diabetes management, especially when a tight metabolic control is difficult to achieve. Expand
Inhibition of advanced glycation end-product formation on eye lens protein by rutin
TLDR
The potential of rutin to prevent and/or inhibit protein glycation and the prospects for controlling AGE-mediated diabetic pathological conditions in vivo are indicated. Expand
Preventive effects of rutin on the development of experimental diabetic nephropathy in rats.
TLDR
The results suggest that rutin can prevent the development of experimental DN in rats and is closely related to oxidative stress and the TGF-β(1)/Smad/ECM and TGF/CTGF/ ECM signaling pathways. Expand

TLDR
GbE can prevent renal fibrosis in rats with diabetic nephropathy, which is most likely to be associated with its abilities to inhibit the Akt/mTOR signaling pathway. Expand
Aldose reductase inhibitor fidarestat counteracts diabetes-associated cataract formation, retinal oxidative-nitrosative stress, glial activation, and apoptosis.
TLDR
An important role for aldose reductase in diabetes-associated cataract formation, and retinal oxidative-nitrosative stress, glial activation, and apoptosis is supported, and a rationale for the development of aldOSE reduct enzyme inhibitors, and, in particular, fidarestat, for the prevention and treatment of diabetic ocular complications is provided.

TLDR
This study demonstrates that mangiferin can markedly ameliorate diabetes-associated cognitive decline in rats, which is done likely through suppressing methylglyoxal hyperactivity (promoting protein glycation, oxidative stress, and inflammation) mediated noxious effects. Expand
