ABSTRACT

Artesunate (AS), a famous derivative of the artemisinin, is the basic treatment globally for mild to severe malaria infection due to the prominent advantages such as high efficiency, fast effect, low toxicity and not easy to produce resistance. More and more research reports have shown that AS and its active metabolites dihydroartemisinin (DHA) had various bioactivities in addition to antimalarial activity, attracting researchers to further study its new pharmacological effects in order to explore new use of the old drug. A comprehensive understanding of the pharmacokinetic characteristics of AS will be conducive to the further development of new pharmacological actions and clinical application of AS. Therefore, this paper would review the absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion of AS , as well as the pharmacokinetics characteristics of AS and DHA after clinical administration of AS by intravenous (IV), intramuscular (IM), oral or rectal routes. The process and pharmacokinetic parameters of AS and DHA were compared between healthy volunteers, malaria patients, and special populations (children, women). Meanwhile, the research progress on pharmacological effects of AS and active metabolite DHA such as anti-tumor, anti-inflammatory, anti septic, antiangiogenic, anti-fibrosis and immunoregulation activities would be also reviewed, hoping to provide a theoretical basis for the further development and utilization of AS and its metabolites.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: The thermo-sensitive composite hydrogels have gained increasing interest in bone regeneration domain due to their biomimetic extracellular matrix (ECM) structure, good biocompatibility, minimal invasive performance and in situ molding. OBJECTIVE:To prepare a thermo-sensitive injectable alginate/α-tricalcium phosphate (α-TCP)/collagen I (Alg/TCP/Col) composite hydrogel and explore its characterization. METHODS:Ca-carrying interdigitation-fusion vesicles (Ca-IFVs) were prepared. The liposomes carrying the optimal concentration of calcium ions were selected for the following experiments by investigating their encapsulation efficiency and drug loading rate. Alg/TCP/Col precursor solution (Alg or Alg/TCP precursor solution) was mixed with Ca-IFVs at 37℃ in different proportions (5, 10, 15, 20) to prepare thermosensitive hydrogels. The structure, rheology behavior, volume swelling ratio, and mechanical properties of the composite hydrogel were observed. MC3T3-E1 cells were co-cultured with Alg/TCP/Col, Alg, and Alg/TCP hydrogels, respectively. Then, morphology of the cells was observed by confocal microscopy at 1, 3, 7 days after co-culture. RESULTS AND CONCLUSION:(1) The pore size of the freeze-dried hydrogel was 50-100 μm, and TCP particles uniformly adhered to the surface of the Alg/TCP hydrogel surface. The Alg/TCP/Col hydrogel was a dense aggregate with collagen fibers in contrast to the Alg/TCP hydrogel. (2) The Alg/TCP/Col hydrogel exhibited a suitable phase transition temperature (Tm) between 35-39℃. (3) The volume swelling ratio of the hydrogel was increased with the increase of Ca-IFVs size. When the α-TCP complex was added into the Alg/TCP hydrogel, the swelling ratio decreased slightly. Alg/TCP/Col hydrogel exhibited a higher swelling ratio than the Alg/TCP hydrogel. (4) When the mixture ratio of precursor solution to liposome was 10, the compressive modulus of Alg/TCP/Col hydrogel and Alg/TCP hydrogel was significantly higher than that of the Alg hydrogel (P<0.05). (5) When the mixture ratio of precursor solution to liposome was 10, round MC3T3-E1 cells were observed on the Alg hydrogel; the cells on the surface of the Alg/TCP hydrogel were scattered and tended to extend; the cells on the surface of the Alg/TCP/Col hydrogel had a stress-extended morphology, and grew into the hydrogel, and meanwhile, the cell number increased significantly. To conclude, the liposome-mediated Alg/TCP/Col has good mechanical properties and cytocompatibility.

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To investigate the metabolism characteristics, to search for potential biomarkers associated with disease and to explore related metabolic pathways by analyzing the plasma metabolic profile of patients with chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) through metabolomies.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>Twenty-six newly diagnosed CML patients in the First Affilated Hospital of Soochow University from February 2015 to April 2015, 26 allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell donors as healthy controls and 26 patients treated with tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI) to obtain the best efficacy as post-treatment controls were enrolled in this study. All the metabolites of plasma were extracted by Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometer(GC-MS) to collect metabolic fingerprint. Multivariate pattern recognition analysis and t test were combined to screen out the metabolic biomarkers at different time points. The receiver operating characteristic curve analysis was used to evaluate the clinical efficacy of metabolites, and the metabolic pathway analysis was performed.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>Significantly different metabolite expression mode was found seen between CML and healthy control groups. Six changed metabolites in CML were confirmed by multivariate and variate statistical analyses. Compared with the healthy controls, the levels of tetradecanoic acid and glycerol were decreased, the lactic acid, myo-inositol, d-galactose and glycine in CML patients also increased (all VIP>1,P<0.05, AUC>0.7). The plasma metabolites in CML patients after treatment with tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI) showed a recovery trend toward to normal levels. The plasma metabolic pathways of CML were mainly related with galactose, pyruvate, glycerolipid, inositol phosphate and glycine, serine and threonine metabolism (all impact value>0.10).</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>Significant changes in plasma metabolite levels were found in CML patients. Metabolomics combined with multivariate pattern recognition analysis may be a new tool to assist diagnosis.</p>

ABSTRACT

The Aconiti Radix Cocta gel and Aconiti Radix Cocta combined with Paeoniae Radix Alba gel were administered to mice. Physiological saline was taken as perfusate. The perfusion rate was 2 μL•min⁻¹ and the microdialysis samples were collected every 0.5 h intervals for eight times. The six aconitine alkaloids concentration in perfusate were determined by HPLC-MS/MS. The concentration-time curves were plotted, and the pharmacokinetic parameters were calculated and analyzed by SPSS. The effects of Paeoniae Radix Alba on transdermal permeation role of six aconitine alkaloids in herb couple of Paeoniae Radix Alba-Aconiti Radix Cocta were investigated. According to the results, Tmax of the three mono-ester aconitum alkaloids of Aconiti Radix Cocta combined with Paeoniae Radix Alba groups were shortened, meanwhile, Cmax and AUC of benzoylaconine and benzoylhypaconine were increased. However, AUC of the three diester-type alkaloids were reduced, with Tmax of hypaconitine prolonged and Cmax lowered. The study suggested that the combined administration of Aconiti Radix Cocta and Paeoniae Radix Alba promoted the transdermal permeation of mono-ester aconitum alkaloids, and inhibited the absorption of parts of diester-type alkaloids. This study proved the decreasing toxicity and increasing efficacy of the combination of Aconiti Radix Cocta and Paeoniae Radix Alba on the transdermal permeation, and provided a reference for studies on the prescription combination regularity and relevant practices.

ABSTRACT

It is not scientific to explain that fried Fructus Hordei Germinatus is more effective than row Fructus Hordei Germinatus in resolving food stagnation from the aspects of amylase, tricine and other "active ingredients". In the present experiment, the contents of active ingredients including quercetin, tricine, kaempferol, catechin, ferulic acid and inactive ingredients including 5-hydroxymethyl furfural, acrylamide in frying process were determined by HPLC. The dynamic change rules of active ingredient and inactive ingredients in the frying process were investigated by HCA, PCA and PLS-DA analysis. The results showed that the Fructus Hordei Germinatus samples with different frying temperatures were classified into 4 groups by HCA and PCA analysis. PLS-DA analysis showed that frying temperature mainly impacted the contents of inactive ingredients including 5-hydroxymethyl furfural and acrylamide, with less effects on the contents of active ingredients. Simultaneously, with the increase of time in frying process, the content of 5-hydroxymethyl furfural was significantly increased from 2 min and became stable at 16 min, while the content of acrylamide was increased continuously from 18 min. Based on the variation of the contents of various ingredients, samples at different frying time were classified into 5 groups. The results showed that the content changes of "inactive ingredients" were closely related to the duration and degree of frying process, and the dynamic change rules of "inactive ingredients" can provide scientific basis for evaluating the frying process and elucidating the efficacy mechanism of Fructus Hordei Germinatus.

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common sustained tachyarrhythmia in the general population. AF and Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) share several common risk factors. We investigated the association between chronic kidney disease and risk of atrial fibrillation in hospitalized patients with CKD.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>One thousand one hundred and sixty-eight patients [(63.3 ± 14.2) years, 54.5% males] hospitalized CKD patients were included. AF was determined by electrocardiogram or medical history. The prevalence of atrial fibrillation was compared in CKD patients with various age, sex and glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). Binary logistic regression analysis was used to determine the risk factors of AF.</p><p><b>RESULT</b>The mean eGFR was (22.2 ± 19.7) ml · min(-1) · 1.73 m(-2); eGFR was ≤ 45 ml · min(-1) · 1.73 m(-2) in 84.2% patients and 38.5% patients received hemodialysis. AF was present in 14.2% of the study population and 17.2% in patients ≥ 60 years old. Prevalence of AF was significantly higher in patients with eGFR ≤ 45 ml · min(-1) · 1.73 m(-2) compared patients with eGFR > 45 ml · min(-1) · 1.73 m(-2) (15.8% vs. 5.4%, P < 0.001). Binary logistic regression analysis showed that age, body mass index (BMI), heart failure (HF), left atrial diameter (LAD), eGFR and dialysis were independent risk factors for AF.</p><p><b>CONCLUSIONS</b>AF is much more frequent in CKD patients than in the general population. Age, BMI, HF, LAD, eGFR and dialysis are risk factors for AF in hospitalized patients with CKD.</p>
