  • Journal of ethnopharmacology
  • 2014
TLDR
In spite of the potential activities associated with the traditional use of danggui, and the many trials using the Chinese system of 'Zheng differentiation', well-designed western-style clinical trials carried out using the authenticated, chemically standardized crude drug material to confirm clinical efficacy are in short supply. Expand
Danggui to Angelica sinensis root: Lost in translation? Are potential benefits of a TCM lost to European women? A review
TLDR
In spite of the potential activities associated with the traditional use of danggui, and the many trials using the Chinese system of ‘Zheng differentiation’, well-designed western-style clinical trials carried out using the authenticated, chemically standardized crude drug material to confirm clinical efficacy are in short supply. Expand
The role of the seven crude drug components in the sleep-promoting effect of Yokukansan.
TLDR
This is the first report to show the role of the seven clude drug components in the sleep-inducing effects of Yokukansan, a traditional Japanese "Kampo" medicine derived from Yi-Gan San in traditional Chinese medicine. Expand
Effect of Angelica sinensis Root Extract on Cancer Prevention in Different Stages of an AOM/DSS Mouse Model
TLDR
It is shown that ASR extract administration in the initial stage of the AOM/DSS model had cancer preventive effects with decreasing tumor incidence and a high-grade of intraepithelial neoplasia incidence, and suggested that the cancer-preventive effect of ASR Extract may be stage-dependent in the process of carcinogenesis. Expand
Structural Characterization of an Alkali‐Soluble Polysaccharide from Angelica sinensis and Its Antitumor Activity in Vivo
TLDR
AASP displayed a proliferation stimulating activity of immunocytes (splenocytes, peritoneal macrophages and natural killer cells), and an auxo‐action for cytokines release (TNF‐α, IL‐2 and IFN‐γ) leading to the apoptosis of H22 solid tumors cells via G0/G1 phase arrested. Expand
Phytochemical progress made in investigations of Angelica sinensis (Oliv.) Diels.
The phytochemical progress on Angelica sinensis (Oliv.) Diels over the past decades is summarized. Since 1970s, 165 chemical constituents, including phthalides, phenylpropanoids, terpenoids andExpand

An herbal decoction of Radix astragali and Radix angelicae sinensis promotes hematopoiesis and thrombopoiesis.
TLDR
DBT might promote haematopoiesis and thrombopoiedis in the mouse model through indirectly promoting the growth of bone marrow stromal cells; and inhibiting apoptosis of megakaryocytes. Expand
Antifibrotic effect of the Chinese herbs, Astragalus mongholicus and Angelica sinensis, in a rat model of chronic puromycin aminonucleoside nephrosis.
TLDR
The combination of Astragalus and Angelica retarded the progression of renal fibrosis and deterioration of renal function with comparable effects of enalapril, and was associated with suppression of the overexpression of TGFbeta1 and osteopontin and less activation of renal intrinsic cells. Expand
Polysaccharides from the root of Angelica sinensis promotes hematopoiesis and thrombopoiesis through the PI3K/AKT pathway
TLDR
In animal models, APS significantly enhanced not only the recovery of platelets, other blood cells and their progenitor cells, but also the formation of Colony Forming Unit (CFU), which likely resulted from the anti-apoptosis activity of APS and is likely to involve the PI3K/AKT pathway. Expand
