Several human diseases have been associated with the overproduction of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and subsequently various antioxidants emerged as potential therapeutic agents that scavenge ROS. As an oxidative stress model of human disease, we used hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) to study effect of ROS on C6 glioma cells as a surrogate for astrocytes. H2O2 induced dose- and time-dependent apoptotic cell death which was preceded by growth arrest, and transiently activated the signalling proteins… Expand
Cytoprotective effect of methanolic extract of Nardostachys jatamansi against hydrogen peroxide induced oxidative damage in C6 glioma cells.
TLDR
The present study suggests that NJ-MEx could serve as a potential treatment and/or preventive measure against neurodegenerative diseases. Expand
The Protective Effects of Insulin on Hydrogen Peroxide-Induced Oxidative Stress in C6 Glial Cells
TLDR
Evidence is provided that insulin acts as a free radical scavenger and stimulating Akt activity under conditions of oxidative stress induced by hydrogen peroxide in C6 glial cells, suggesting that insulin may be effective in degenerative diseases with oxidative stress. Expand
Protective and Antioxidant Effects of a Chalconoid from Pulicaria incisa on Brain Astrocytes
TLDR
It is found that pulichalconoid B attenuated the accumulation of ROS following treatment of these cells with hydrogen peroxide by 89% and prevented 89% of the H2O2-induced death of astrocytes. Expand
Glutathione Peroxidase 1 Promotes NSCLC Resistance to Cisplatin via ROS-Induced Activation of PI3K/AKT Pathway
TLDR
GPX1 overexpression blocks cisplatin-induced ROS intracellular accumulation, activates PI3K-AKT pathway by increased AKT phosphorylation, and further leads to cisPlatin resistance in NSCLC cells, suggesting that overexpression of GPX1 is a novel molecular mechanism for cis platin-based chemoresistance inNSCLC. Expand
Protective effect of a phenolic‐rich fraction from Schisandra chinensis against H2O2‐induced apoptosis in SH‐SY5Y cells
TLDR
PRF may be useful in the treatment and prevention of neurodegenerative diseases associated with elevated ROS levels and exerted an apparent suppressive effect on oxidative stress induced by reactive oxygen species (ROS). Expand
Antioxidant and Astroprotective Effects of a Pulicaria incisa Infusion
TLDR
In the present study, an infusion prepared from the desert plant Pulicaria incisa (Pi) was tested for its protective and antioxidant effects on astrocytes subjected to oxidative stress and exhibited an antioxidant effect in vitro and induced GDNF transcription in astroCytes. Expand
Ginkgo biloba extract (GbE) enhances the anti-atherogenic effect of cilostazol by inhibiting ROS generation
TLDR
Results suggest that co-treatment of GbE with cilostazol has a more potent anti-atherosclerotic effect than treatment with ciltazol alone in hyperlipidemic ApoE null mice and could be a valuable therapeutic strategy for the treatment of atherosclerosis. Expand
Hanna Fokt
Ginkgo biloba L. is a plant with a wide range of biological activities and its leaf extract (EGb 761) has been one of the best-selling medicinal products worldwide due to its antioxidant activity.Expand
Abrogation by Ginkgo Byloba Leaf Extract on Hepatic and Renal Toxicity Induced by Methotrexate in Rats
TLDR
It is concluded that Co-treatment with GLE has beneficial properties and can reduce the liver and kidney damages and toxicity induced by MTX. Expand
Cellular uptake and actions of bilberry anthocyanins in retinal pigment epithelial cells
TLDR
Bilberry anthocyanin induction of phase II detoxifying and oxidative stress protective enzymes suggest more significant protective effects than direct radical quenching suggesting these phytochemicals may thus enhance glutathione levels or altered cellular redox states. Expand

Prevention of neuronal cell damage induced by oxidative stress in‐vitro: effect of different Ginkgo biloba extracts
TLDR
Observations make one suppose that different preparations of Ginkgo biloba have quantitatively different actions and outline the importance of the contribution of apoptosis prevention toward their neuroprotective action. Expand
Simvastatin induces proliferation inhibition and apoptosis in C6 glioma cells via c-jun N-terminal kinase
TLDR
Observations suggest that statins may have clinical significance in the prevention of glial tumors beyond their cholesterol-lowering effect and JNK may be a rational target for sensitizing glioma cells to chemotherapeutic agents. Expand
Natural extracts as possible protective agents of brain aging
TLDR
It is found that EGb 761, possibly through the antioxidant properties of its flavonoids, was able to protect hippocampal cells against toxic effects induced by Abeta peptides, and the hypothesis that dietary intake of natural substances may be beneficial in normal aging of the brain is supported.

Ginkgo biloba extracts and cancer: a research area in its infancy
Recent studies conducted with various molecular, cellular and whole animal models have revealed that leaf extracts of Ginkgo biloba may have anticancer (chemopreventive) properties that are relatedExpand
Flavonoids protect neurons from oxidized low-density-lipoprotein-induced apoptosis involving c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK), c-Jun and caspase-3.
TLDR
Dietary flavonoids might have potential as protective agents against neuronal apoptosis through selective actions within stress-activated cellular responses, including protein kinase signalling cascades. Expand
Cellular response to oxidative stress: Signaling for suicide and survival *
TLDR
The various signaling pathways known to be activated in response to oxidative stress in mammalian cells, the mechanisms leading to their activation, and their roles in influencing cell survival are discussed. Expand
Bcl-2 blocks cisplatin-induced apoptosis by suppression of ERK-mediated p53 accumulation in B104 cells.
TLDR
It is suggested that ERK mediates cisplatin-induced p53 activation to trigger apoptosis in B104 cells, and the action site of Bcl-2 localizes upstream of ERK in cisplarin-induced apoptotic signaling pathway. Expand
ERK-1/2 and p38 Kinase Oppositely Regulate Nitric Oxide-induced Apoptosis of Chondrocytes in Association with p53, Caspase-3, and Differentiation Status*
TLDR
The results indicate that NO-induced p38 kinase functions as an induction signal for apoptosis and in the maintenance of chondrocyte phenotype, whereas ERK activity causes dedifferentiation and operates as an anti-apoptotic signal. Expand
Complementary cardioprotective effects of flavonoid metabolites and terpenoid constituents of Ginkgo biloba extract (EGb 761) during ischemia and reperfusion
TLDR
Findings provide the first evidence that part of the cardioprotection afforded by EGb 761 is due to a specific action of its terpenoid constituents and that this effect involves a mechanism independent of direct free radical-scavenging. Expand

TLDR
Western medicine has not yet used flavonoids therapeutically, even though their safety record is exceptional, and suggestions are made where such possibilities may be worth pursuing. Expand
