A mild ischemic stroke may cause both debilitating locomotor and cognitive decline, for which the mechanism is not fully understood, and no therapies are currently available. In this study, a nonfatal stroke model was constructed in mice by a modified middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) procedure, allowing an extended recovery period up to 28 days. The extended MCAO model successfully mimicked phenotypes of a recovery phase post-stroke, including locomotor motor and cognitive deficiencies, w...
Abstract null null This study describes the assessment of mucosal adjuvant activity of a squalene-based nanoemulsion (SQ@NE) following intravaginal delivery in mice. After immunization, a high level of recruitment of CD11b/c+ granulocytes and F4/80+ macrophages was observed in the vaginal mucosal tissues of the mice immunized with a model protein ovalbumin (OVA) formulated with SQ@NE, and then downstream regulated the expression of MHC II and costimulatory molecules CD40 and CD86 on CD11c+ cells...

Tranilast (TRN) or (N-3,4 -dimethoxy cinnamoyl]-anthranilic acid) is an analog of a tryptophan metabolite and is identified mainly as an anti-allergic agent with limited side effects. The anti-cancer effects of tranilast either alone or in combination with chemotherapeutic drugs have been evidenced in several pre-clinical studies. The main mechanism of action of tranilast includes targeting and modulation of various signaling and immune regulatory pathways including Transforming growth factor-be...
Lung cancer treatment using cisplatin (DDP) in combination with other drugs are effective for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The aim of this study was to prepare a layer-by-layer nanoparticles (NPs) for the co-loading of DDP and oridonin (ORI) and to evaluate the antitumor activity of the system in vitro and in vivo. Novel DDP and ORI co-loaded layer-by-layer NPs (D/O-NPs) were constructed. The mean diameter, surface change stability and drug release behavior of NPs were ev...

Abstract Background Pain after laparoscopic cholecystectomy remains a major challenge. Ondansetron blocks sodium channels and may have local anesthetic properties. Aims To investigate the effect of intraperitoneal administration of ondansetron for postoperative pain management as an adjuvant to intravenous acetaminophen in patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Methods Patients scheduled for elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy were randomized into two groups (n = 25 each) to receive...

Traditionally, Diospyros lotus Linn is used for insomnia and other associated disorders. Insomnia is a worldwide disorder with different etiology which is treated with different synthetic medicine associated with addiction. Natural products are generally devoid of such addition with good efficacy. Current research was conducted to evaluate the sedative and hypnotic effects of dimeric naphthoquinones such as dinaphthodiospyrol A (1), dinaphthodiospyrol B (2), dinaphthodiospyrol C (3), dinaphthodi...
Abstract null null The ovarian reserve (OR) indicates ovarian function by representing the quantity and quality of ovarian follicles, and it gradually decreases with increasing age. With the prolongation of women’s lives, the protection provided by estrogen is lost for decades in postmenopausal women, and the related cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, osteoporosis, and decreased immunity are the main risk factors affecting women’s quality of life and longevity. Pharmacologic hormone re...

Bark is the traditional medicinal component of Eucommia ulmoides Oliver (E. ulmoides). However, the demand for E. ulmoides medicinal materials seriously limits their sustainability. To alleviate resource constraints, the bioactivity of E. ulmoides leaves and its pharmacodynamic basis were investigated. In the present study, extracts of E. ulmoides leaves were found to display potential renal protective properties in rat glomerular mesangial (HBZY-1) cells treated with high levels of glucose, sug...

Abstract In the brain, aminopeptidase A (APA) generates angiotensin III, one of the effector peptides of the brain renin-angiotensin system (RAS), exerting tonic stimulatory control over blood pressure (BP) in hypertensive rats. Oral administration of firibastat, an APA inhibitor prodrug, in hypertensive rats, inhibits brain APA activity, blocks brain angiotensin III formation and decreases BP. In this study, we evaluated the efficacy of firibastat in combination with enalapril, an angiotensin I...

Abstract Children with Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) have an elevated risk of abnormal blood pressure (BP) measurements and patterns. Both hypertension and T1DM are well-known risk factors for cardiovascular disease and kidney failure. The human microbiome has been linked to both diabetes and hypertension, but the relationship between the gut microbiome and BP in children with T1DM is not well-understood. In this cross-sectional study, we examined the relationship between resting office BP and...
