OBJECTIVE:To study the improvement effects of Rouganbao granules on liver fibrosis of model rats,and to provide experimental evidence for further development of this preparation. METHODS:Totally 45 male SD rats were divided into normal group,model group,positive control group(Fuzheng huayu capsules,0.4 g/kg)and Rouganbao granules high-dose and low-dose groups(16.8,8.4 g/kg by crude drug)according to random number table,with 9 rats in each group. Except for normal group,other groups were given CCl4sub cutaneously and high lipid diet+15% ethanol solution for 12 weeks to establish liver fibrosis model. After modeling,medication groups were given relevant medicine intragastrically,once a day,for consecutive 12 weeks. Normal group and model group were given corresponding volume of water intragastrically. The pathology change of liver tissues of rats was observed by inverted microscope. The levels of liver function indexes (ALT,AST,ALB) and liver fibrosis indexes(HA,Ⅳ-C,LN,Ⅲ-PC)were determined by ELISA. RESULTS:Compared with model group,liver cell vacuolation and liver fibrosis of rats were improved significantly in Rouganbao granule high-dose and low-dose groups;central vein was clearly visible,and no dilation and atrophy were found,especially in high-dose group;the serum levels of ALT and AST were decreased significantly,while the level of ALB was increased significantly(P<0.05 or P<0.01),of which the protective effect for liver was similar to positive control drug but better in increasing ALB(P<0.05 or P<0.01);the serum levels of HA,Ⅳ-C,LN and Ⅲ-PC were all decreased in varying degree,especially in high-dose group(P<0.05 or P<0.01),of which the effect of relieving liver fibrosis was similar to positive control drug. CONCLUSIONS:Rouganbao granules can improve liver function and delay the progression of liver fibrosis in model rats.

Aims To establish the methods of primary culture of fibroblast-like synoviocytes in rats with adju-vant arthritis(AA-FLS)and analyze the feature and to investigate the possibility of AA-FLS as the model for the RA in vitro.Methods The synovial cells obtained from the SD rats were immunized by the Mtb and iden-tified by morphology and immunocytochemistry.The viability of AA-FLS was assessed by Cell Counting Kit-8.ELISA was applied to detect TNF-αand IL-1 βin cell media. Apoptosis was measured by Hochest 33258.The expressions of mitochondrial apoptosis-re-lated molecules,including Bcl-2,Bax,Pro-caspase-3 and Cleave-caspase-3 were determined by Western Blot.Result In isolated primary synovial cells,more than 95% of AA-FLSs were fusiform.Immunocyto-chemistry result showed a positive expression of vimen-tin and a negative expression of CD68 in AA-FLS.Cell proliferation of AA-FLS was higher than FLS and cell apoptosis of AA-FLS was curbed.Western blot data demonstrated that the protein expressions of Bcl-2,Bax were regulated and the expression of caspase-3 was ac-tivated in AA-FLS.Conclusions AA-FLS is biologi-cally characterized by high level proliferation activity and inflammatory cytokines and apoptosis suppression. AA-FLS can be used as the model for the RA in vitro.

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To characterize the proteomic profiles of joint synovial tissue in normal rats and rats with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and identify the proteins related with the occurrence of RA to explore the pathogenesis of RA.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>SD rat models of RA were established using Mtb (heat-killed Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Ra). Two-dimensional gel electrophoresis proteomics technology was employed to analyze the difference in synovial tissue protein profiles between RA model rats and normal rats, and two of the differentially expressed proteins were verified with Western blotting and fluorescence quantitative PCR.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>Comparison of the two-dimensional gel electrophoresis patterns from the model rats and normal rats showed 4 up-regulated and 4 down-regulated proteins by 2 folds in the RA model rats. Western blotting and fluorescent quantitative PCR of 2 of the 8 proteins yielded consistent results with those by proteomics analysis.</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>Arthritis synovial lesions in RA represent very complex pathological processes involving a variety of proteins, and these differentially expressed proteins may contribute to the progression of RA.</p>
