To explore the potential effective components and mechanism of Zhishe Tongluo Capsules in the treatment of ischemic stroke via network pharmacology, molecular docking and cellular experiment. The chemical constituents of Zhishe Tongluo Capsules were found by TCMSP, BATMAN-TCM and literatures. The constituents-target network was predicted by BATMAN-TCM database. Key words such as cerebral stroke, ischemic stroke and cerebral ischemic stroke were used to search ischemic stroke related targets, and then Venny Map was constructed based on the targets of traditional Chinese medicine and the targets of ischemic stroke. The overlapping targets were imported into STRING database to establish the interaction network. Furthermore, the core targets were screened out by Cytoscape software. Go and KEGG enrichment analysis were performed through DVIAD database. The results showed a total of 193 potential chemical constituents, 985 drug targets and 6 035 disease targets. There were 631 potential targets, 44 core targets and 55 potential active components for treating ischemic stroke through Venny mapping. GO enrichment analysis mainly involved response to hypoxia and positive regulation of ERK1/ERK2. KEGG pathway enrichment analysis mainly involved cholinergic synapse, cAMP signaling pathway, and calcium signaling pathway. Molecular docking data revealed that TP53, EGFR, IL6, INS, TNF and SRC had a good capability to bind with their corresponding active components. To ensure the protective effect Zhishe Tongluo Capsules on the inflammation reaction, an in vitro model of lipopolysaccharide(LPS)-induced RAW264.7 cells was built. The contents of IL-1α, IL-1β, IL-6 and TNF-α in the supernatant were significantly decreased by enzyme linked immunosorbent assay(ELISA). The findings suggested that Zhishe Tongluo Capsules could prevent the injury of ischemic stroke by inhibiting the inflammation.

This study was designed to explore the protective effect and underlying mechanism of catalpol on hepatocyte apoptosis in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). High fat diet (HFD) was used to establish NAFLD model in the in vivo experiment, and the procedures of the experiments and animal care protocol were approved by the Animal Care and Use Committee of Jianghan University. Human liver cancer cell line HepG2 was treated with palmitate (PA) to establish a lipid toxicity model in the in vitro experiments. The results showed that catalpol significantly decreased the contents of serum total glyceride (TG), total cholesterol (TC), alanine aminotransferase (ALT), and aspartate transaminase (AST) in HFD-fed mice. Results of TUNEL staining and flow cytometry analyses revealed that catalpol significantly inhibited hepatocytes apoptosis in HFD-fed mice and PA-treated HepG2 cells. Moreover, catalpol treatment significantly reduced the endoplasmic reticulum stress-related protein expression levels of binding immunoglobulin protein (BiP), phosphorylated PKR-like endoplasmic reticulum kinase (p-PERK), inositol-requiring kinase 1α (IRE1α), and transcriptional factor activating transcription factor 6 (ATF6), and apoptosis-related protein expression levels of C/EBP homology protein (CHOP), phosphorylated c-Jun N-terminal kinase (p-JNK), and cleaved cysteinyl aspartate specific proteinases (caspases)-12, -9, and -3 in HFD-fed mice and PA-treated HepG2 cells. Furthermore, endoplasmic reticulum stress agonist tunicamycin (TM) significantly reversed the inhibitory effect of catalpol on protein expression levels of BiP, p-PERK, IRE1α, and ATF6, subsequently the inhibitory effect of catalpol on expression levels of CHOP, p-JNK, Bcl-2, Bax, and cleaved caspases (-12, -9, and -3) was also attenuated in PA-treated HepG2 cells. Taken together, these findings demonstrated that catalpol could inhibit hepatocytes apoptosis and had a significant protective effect on liver injury, and its mechanism might be related to the relief of endoplasmic reticulum stress.

To investigate the effect of catalpol on high-fat diet(HFD)-induced nonalcoholic fatty liver disease(NAFLD)and its underlying molecular mechanisms. Sixty C57BL/6J male mice were randomly divided into six groups:control group;HFD group;HFD+catalpol(100 mg/kg)group;HFD+catalpol(200 mg/kg)group;HFD+catalpol(400 mg/kg)group;and HFD+atorvastatin calcium(ATC)(30 mg/kg)group.The control group was fed a normal diet containing 4.4 kJ/g fat,whereas the other five groups were fed a high-fat diet containing 19.8 kJ/g fat.Mice in the catalpol or ATC treatment groups were administered by gavage for different doses of catalpol or ATC,whereas other mice were treated with saline.Body weight was measured once a week.Experiments were terminated after 18 weeks,and blood and liver samples were collected after an overnight fast(12 hours)for analysis.The body weight and liver weight were measured and the levels of serum total cholesterol(TC),triglyceride(TG),high-density lipoprotein cholesterol(HDL-C),low-density lipoprotein cholesterol(LDL-C),alanine aminotransferase(ALT),and aspartate transaminase(AST)as well as inflammatory factors tumor necrosis factor-α(TNF-α),interleukin(IL)-1β,and IL-6 were determined by commercially available kits.Liver sections were stained with Oil Red O and HE to investigate the lipid accumulation and histopathological changes.The protein expressions of nuclear factor kappa-B(NF-κB)p65,inhibitor of nuclear factor kappa-B α(IκBα),B-cell lymphoma-2(Bcl-2),Bcl-2 associated x protein(Bax),and Caspase-3 were determined by Western blot. Compared to the model group,the body weight gains(all =0.001),liver index(=0.008,=0.001,=0.001),ALT(=0.004,=0.001,=0.001),and AST(=0.008,=0.001,=0.001)were significantly decreased in catalpol treatment groups,and the serum levels of TC(=0.005,=0.001),TG (all =0.001),and LDL-C(all =0.001)were also significantly decreased in middle and high dose groups,and the serum level of HDL-C was significantly increased in high group(=0.009).Moreover,compared to the model group,the degree of liver injury and lipid accumulation were obviously decreased in the catalpol treatment groups according to the pathology.Similarly,the release of inflammatory factors was significantly inhibited by the treatment with catalpol.The results of Western blot showed that the protein levels of NF-κB p65(=0.014,=0.001,=0.001)and Caspase-3(all =0.001)in the livers of HFD-fed mice were significantly reduced by catalpol treatment.In addition,the protein level of IκBα(=0.028,=0.001,=0.001)and the ratio of Bcl-2/Bax in high dose group(=0.003)was increased by treatment with catalpol. Catalpol can effectively improve the body weight gains,liver index,dyslipidemia,and lipid accumulation in HFD-fed mice and inhibit the release of inflammatory factors and hepatocyte apoptosis,thereby preventing the development of NAFLD induced by HFD.

Objective: To discuss the influence of coronary artery lesion of elderly patients with coronary heart disease [CHD] on left ventricular remodeling

Methods: Retrospective selection method was used to choose 80 elderly CHD patients who received coronary angiogram examination in Baoding First Central Hospital from January 2014 to February 2018 as the objects of study. According to coronary artery lesion, the patients were classified into single vessel lesion group [single vessel group] and multi-vessel lesion group [multi-vessel group, the number of lesion vessels >/=2]. Single vessel group included 60 patients, and multi-vessel group includes 20 patients. Intravascular unltrasound was applied to record coronary plaque property of all patients and transthoracic echocardiography was used to record left ventricular remodeling. Later correlation analysis was carried out

Results: The proportion of calcified plaque and mixed plaque was higher than that of single vessel group, and the differences had statistical significance [P<0.05]. Left ventricular end diastolic volume [LVEDV] and left ventricular end-systolic volume [LVESV] of multi-vessel group were higher than that of single vessel group, while left ventricular ejection fraction [LVEF] was lower than that of single vessel group. The differences had statistical significance [P<0.05]. Linear correlation analysis showed coronary artery lesion was positively correlated with LVEF and calcified plaque [r=0.287, 0.371, P<0.05]. Multiple linear regression analysis showed LVEF, calcified plaque and LDL-C were independent risk factors of multi-vessel coronary artery lesion of old CHD patients [P<0.05]

Conclusion: The number of coronary artery lesions is significantly correlated with left ventricular remodeling, and can increase the proportion of calcified plaque and mixed plaque, thus leading to left ventricular remodeling abnormity

Serum creatinine, cystatin C and estimated GFR were tested before and on day 1, 2 and 3 after procedures. The occurance of contrast-induced nephropathy ( CIN ) was recorded. Resu1ts The baseline clinical characteristics of the patients between the two groups had no significant difference. Preoperative and postoperative serum creatinine, cystatin C and eGFR values on day 1, 2 and 3 had no significant difference between the two groups (all P﹥0. 05). There was no significant difference in the incidence of CIN between two groups (5. 3% in the study group vs. 4. 8% in the control group, P﹥0. 05 ) . Conc1usions It is safe and feasible for patients with eGFR≥60 ml/( min?1. 73 m2 ) to undergo CAG or PCI within 1 week after coronary CTA.

<p><b>BACKGROUND</b>To evaluate whether serotonin (5-HT), 5-HT2A receptor (5-HT2AR), and 5-HT transporter (serotonin transporter [SERT]) are associated with different disease states of depression, myocardial infarction (MI) and MI co-exist with depression in Sprague-Dawley rats.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>After established the animal model of four groups include control, depression, MI and MI with depression, we measured 5-HT, 5-HT2AR and SERT from serum and platelet lysate.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>The serum concentration of 5-HT in depression rats decreased significantly compared with the control group (303.25 ± 9.99 vs. 352.98 ± 13.73; P = 0.000), while that in MI group increased (381.78 ± 14.17 vs. 352.98 ± 13.73; P = 0.000). However, the depression + MI group had no change compared with control group (360.62 ± 11.40 vs. 352.98 ± 13.73; P = 0.036). The changes of the platelet concentration of 5-HT in the depression, MI, and depression + MI group were different from that of serum. The levels of 5-HT in above three groups were lower than that in the control group (380.40 ± 17.90, 387.75 ± 22.28, 246.40 ± 18.99 vs. 500.29 ± 20.91; P = 0.000). The platelet lysate concentration of 5-HT2AR increased in depression group, MI group, and depression + MI group compared with the control group (370.75 ± 14.75, 393.47 ± 15.73, 446.66 ± 18.86 vs. 273.66 ± 16.90; P = 0.000). The serum and platelet concentration of SERT in the depression group, MI group and depression + MI group were all increased compared with the control group (527.51 ± 28.32, 602.02 ± 23.32, 734.76 ± 29.59 vs. 490.56 ± 16.90; P = 0.047, P = 0.000, P = 0.000 in each and 906.38 ± 51.84, 897.33 ± 60.34, 1030.17 ± 58.73 vs. 708.62 ± 51.15; P = 0.000 in each).</p><p><b>CONCLUSIONS</b>The concentration of 5-HT2AR in platelet lysate and SERT in serum and platelet may be involved in the pathway of MI with depression. Further studies should examine whether elevated 5-HT2AR and SERT may contribute to the biomarker in MI patients with depression.</p>

OBJECTIVE:To establish HPLC fingerprint sectrum of Rhaponticum uniflorum. METHODS:HPLC was performed on the column of Hypersil-ODS with mobile phase of 0.3% phosphoric acid-acetonitrile(gradient elution) at flow rate of 1.0 ml/min,detection wavelength was 220 nm,column temperature was 30 ℃ and volume injection was 10 μl. The luteolin was refer-ence,17 batches of R. uniflorum from different production places was analyzed and similarity evaluation system for chromatograph-ic fingerprint of TCM (2004 A edition)was adopted for the similarity analysis. RESULTS:There were totally 11 common peaks with similarity degree≥0.900 of 17 batches. According to the verification,the fingerprint spectrum and reference fingerprint spec-trum of R. uniflorum had good consistency. CONCLUSIONS:The established method is specific and stable,and can provide refer-ence for the identification and quality control of R. uniflorum.
