Advanced glycation endproducts (AGEs) is implicated in the pathogenesis of diabetic complications. Inhibiting the formation of AGEs and interfering with AGEs-mediated inflammation are two practicable strategies for developing a dietary adjuvant against diabetic complications. This study evaluated the protective capacities against diabetic complications of several spices based on their inhibition of the formation of AGEs in an in vitro BSA/glucose system and on the AGEs-induced production of… Expand
The Mechanisms of Inhibition of Advanced Glycation End Products Formation through Polyphenols in Hyperglycemic Condition.
The contribution of advanced glycation end products to the pathogenesis of diabetic complications, such as atherosclerosis, diabetic retinopathy, nephropathy, neuropathy, and wound healing is discussed. Expand
Antiglycation and antioxidant properties of Momordica charantia
Diabetes mellitus is a multifactorial disorder characterised by hyperglycaemia and leads to complications. These complications are caused by advanced glycation endproducts (AGEs) that form throughExpand
Analysis of glycation induced protein cross-linking inhibitory effects of some antidiabetic plants and spices
Methanol extracts of PD, PE, PM, CS and SA have shown promising inhibitory effects on glycation induced protein cross-linking. Expand
Inhibitory effect and cross-link breaking activity of Moringa oleifera leaf crude extracts on fructose-derived advanced glycation end-products
Abstract Background Leaf extracts of Moringa oleifera (M. oleifera), have been shown to have hypoglycaemic effects in both human and animal models of type 2 diabetes. However, the research on theirExpand
Cinnamaldehyde protects from methylglyoxal-induced vascular damage: Effect on nitric oxide and advanced glycation end products.
According to findings obtained from this study, frequent cinnamaldehyde intake will improve vascular reactivity by acting on vasodilatory mechanisms and inhibiting glycation reactions, hence improving the hyperglycemia associated hypertensive state. Expand
Inhibitory effect of plant extract on tumor necrosis factor-α formation from carboxymethyllysine stimulated macrophages
We have confirmed that, using the in vitro glucose/albumin reaction models, CML formation could be prevented by the extracts of banabá (Lagerstroemia speciosa), Chinese blackberry (Tien-cha) (RubusExpand
Role of aldose reductase and arginase inhibitors in diabetic vascular and behavioral complications.
The results suggest the possible effectiveness of aldose reductase and arginase inhibitors in the management of diabetic vascular and behavioral complications together with conventional antidiabetic therapy. Expand
Diet-Derived Antioxidants and Their Role in Inflammation, Obesity and Gut Microbiota Modulation
It is underlined that antioxidants are implicated in a complex interplay between gut microbiota, inflammation and obesity, thus suggesting their possible role in the development and modulation of chronic diseases related to oxidative stress and in the maintenance of wellness. Expand
Protective Role of Ginger on the Induced Diabetic Retinopathy in Adult Albino Rats
Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a global epidemic disease and the alarming increase in its prevalence is one of the major challenges to modern health care. Therefore, with a rapid increase in theExpand
Determination of superoxide dismutase mimetic activity in common culinary herbs
All extracts of uncooked, cooked and cooked and digested herbs were shown to possess SODm activity, which was significantly correlated with previously determined antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities of these herbs. Expand


Prevention of non-enzymic glycation of proteins by dietary agents: prospects for alleviating diabetic complications
The potential of some dietary components to prevent and/or inhibit protein glycation is indicated and these dietary agents may be able to be exploited for controlling AGE-mediated diabetic pathological conditions in vivo. Expand
Involvement of the toxic AGEs (TAGE)-RAGE system in the pathogenesis of diabetic vascular complications: a novel therapeutic strategy.
The inhibition of TAGE formation, blockade of Tage-RAGE interaction, and the suppression of RAGE expression or its downstream pathways are promising targets for therapeutic interventions against diabetic vascular complications. Expand
Cinnamon bark proanthocyanidins as reactive carbonyl scavengers to prevent the formation of advanced glycation endproducts.
This is the first report that proanthocyanidins can effectively scavenge reactive carbonyl species and thus inhibit the formation of AGEs, which show great potential to be developed as agents to alleviate diabetic complications. Expand

Induction of novel cytokines and chemokines by advanced glycation endproducts determined with a cytometric bead array.
The study showed that monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) and tumor necrosis factor (TNF-alpha) were both released in a time-dependent manner from both RAW 264.7 macrophages and N-11 microglia in response to both stimuli. Expand
Evaluation of NO-suppressing activity of several Mediterranean culinary spices.
It would appear that inhibition of iNOS expression was the primary mechanism of action of spices as regards their exerting NO-suppressing activity. Expand
Advanced glycosylation end products induce NF-κB dependent iNOS expression in RAW 264.7 cells
Results suggest that AGEs may activate NF-kappaB via an upstream signaling cascade composed of tyrosine kinase, PI 3-K, PKC, and p38 MAPK, resulting in the induction of iNOS expression in RAW 264.7 macrophages. Expand
