ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To investigate the protective effects of Schisandra chinensis oil (SCEO) against aristolochic acid I (AA I)-induced nephrotoxicity in vivo and in vitro and elucidate the underlying mechanism.@*METHODS@#C57BL/6 mice were randomly divided into 5 groups according to a random number table, including control group, AA I group, and AA I +SCEO (0.25, 0.5 and 1 g/kg) groups (n=5 per group). Pretreatment with SCEO was done for 2 days by oral administration, while the control and AA I groups were treated with sodium carboxymethyl cellulose. Mice of all groups except for the control group were injected intraperitoneally with AA I (5 mg/kg) from day 3 until day 7. Histopathological examination and apoptosis of kidney tissue were observed by hematoxylin and eosin and TdT-mediated dUTP nick-end labeling (TUNEL) staining, respectively. The levels of serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), blood urea nitrogen (BUN), and serum creatinine (SCr), as well as renal malondialdehyde (MDA), glutathione, r-glutamyl cysteingl+glycine (GSH), and superoxide dismutase (SOD) were analyzed using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Expressions of hepatic cytochrome P450 1A1 (CYP1A1), CYP1A2, and nad(p)hquinonedehydrogenase1 (NQO1) were analyzed using ELISA, quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) and Western blot, respectively. In vitro, SCEO (40 µ g/mL) was added 12 h before treatment with AA I (40 µ mol/mL for 48 h) in human renal proximal tubule cell line (HK-2), then apoptosis and reactive oxygen species (ROS) were analyzed by flow cytometry.@*RESULTS@#SCEO 0.5 and 1 g/kg ameliorated histopathological changes and TUNEL+ staining in the kidney tissues of mice with AA I-induced nephrotoxicity, and reduced serum levels of ALT, AST, BUN and SCr (P<0.01 or P<0.05). SCEO 0.5 and 1 g/kg alleviated the ROS generation in kidney, containing MDA, GSH and SOD (P<0.01 or P<0.05). SCEO 1 g/kg increased the expressions of CYP1A1 and CYP1A2 and decreased NQO1 level in the liver tissues (P<0.01 or P<0.05). Besides, in vitro studies also demonstrated that SCEO 40 µ g/mL inhibited apoptosis and ROS generation (P<0.05 or P<0.01).@*CONCLUSIONS@#SCEO can alleviate AA I-induced kidney damage both in vivo and in vitro. The protective mechanism may be closely related to the regulation of metabolic enzymes, thereby inhibiting apoptosis and ROS production.

ABSTRACT

AIM: To observe the efficacy of intravitreal injection of conbercept in the treatment of late postoperative vitreous cavity haemorrhage(POVCH)in patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy(PDR).METHODS: A total of 56 patients(57 eyes)with late POVCH after vitrectomy in patients with PDR were retrospectively analyzed. Among them, 28 eyes that received intravitreal injection of 0.05 mL conbercept were selected as the conbercept group, whereas 29 eyes that did not receive intravitreal injection of conbercept were selected as the control group. Best corrected visual acuity(BCVA), the degree of vitreous haemorrhage(VH), intraocular pressure and ocular fundus were recorded before and after vitrectomy and injection, at 1mo after late POVCH and at the end of follow-up, respectively. Moreover, the number of eyes that received the secondary surgery(vitreous lavage)was compared and the patients' general conditions such as blood glucose, blood pressure and mental health were observed.RESULTS: BCVA was better in the conbercept group than in the control group(1.26±0.13 vs.1.76±0.20; P=0.04)at 1mo after late POVCH.There was no difference in BCVA at POVCH onset and at the end of follow-up between the two groups(P=0.08, 0.24). In terms of VH opacity,there was significant improvement in 13 eyes, moderate improvement in 9 eyes and no improvement in 6 eyes in the conbercept group. However,in the control group, there was significant improvement in 11 eyes, moderate improvement in 3 eyes and no improvement in 15 eyes(P=0.03). Eyes in the conbercept group showed less possibility of reoperation than those in the control group(21% vs. 51%,P=0.045). The mean times of injections in the conbercept group was 2.24±1.16(range: 1-5). The follow-up period ranged from 12 to 24mo,with an average of 16.47±3.34mo. Among the 28 eyes with POVCH,11(19%)eyes had the fundus fibrous vascular membrane and 11(19%)eyes had retinal neovessels.Neovascular glaucoma(NVG)and iris neovascularization were observed in 10(18%)and 4(7%)eyes, respectively. After the amelioration of haemorrhage of POVCH in 57 eyes, 44(77%)eyes were supplemented with retinal photocoagulation. At POVCH onset, 43(75%)patients exhibited abnormal blood glucose(glycosylated hemoglobin)and(or)blood pressure,and 6(11%)patients were reported to felt tired or anger.CONCLUSION: Intravitreal injection of conbercept for late POVCH in patients with PDR can promote the amelioration of haemorrhage, improve visual acuity, and reduce the need for reoperation. Moreover, strict control of systemic factors such as blood pressure, blood glucose and psychological situation is crucial in patients with PDR for late POVCH.

ABSTRACT

"Xiang thinking" is the main thinking mode in traditional Chinese medicine(TCM) with both philosophical and scientific connotations, and has an important influence on the emergence and development of TCM. This study systematically expounded the philosophical connotation and characteristics of "Xiang thinking", and its application in the construction of TCM theory, clinical syndrome differentiation and treatment, the formation of medicinal properties, and interpretation of efficacy of Chinese medicine. "Xiang thinking" in TCM develops and changes continuously with practical application, and its historical evolution can be summarized into three stages, i.e., "Ying Xiang(corresponding to Xiang)" "Fa Xiang(following Xiang)", and "Bian Xiang(differentiating Xiang)". The understanding of Xiang is based on the means and methods of human observation of things and the backgrounds of the philosophy, science, and development. The result of comparison depends on the depth and breadth of Xiang. In the real world, Xiang is showing new construction characteristics with multiple dimensions and levels. Therefore, this study proposed the thinking of "Bian Xiang", which is expected to provide a thinking approach that can realize the transformation from "Xiang thinking" to scientific research for the exploration and innovative research on life origin in the field of contemporary and TCM.

ABSTRACT

To explore the potential molecular mechanism of Mongolian medicine Bawei Sanxiang San in the treatment of chronic heart failure(CHF) through network pharmacology and molecular docking technology. The active ingredients and potential targets of Bawei Sanxiang San were collected by applying TCMSP, BATMAN databases and literature mining. CHF-related genes were collected through TTD, GeneCards and CTD databases. After the potential common targets between Bawei Sanxiang San and CHF were disco-vered, the interaction network diagram of "compound-target-pathway" was constructed using Cytoscape. The intersecting targets were imported into the DAVID database for GO function and KEGG pathway enrichment analysis. Finally, the Autodock_vina software was used to molecularly dock the selected proteins with the active ingredients of Bawei Sanxiang San. The results showed that there were 60 active ingredients in Bawei Sanxiang San that might be used to treat CHF, involving 311 target genes and 7 signaling pathways that directly related to CHF, such as HIF-1 signaling pathway, TNF signaling pathway, adrenergic signaling in cardiomyocytes, aldosterone-regulated sodium reabsorption, calcium signaling pathway, cGMP-PKG signaling pathway, renin secretion. Additionally, molecular docking showed that the bioactive compounds had good binding activity with the protein receptors of key target genes. Bawei Sanxiang San might exert therapeutic effects on CHF by regulating cardiomyocytes, angiogenic and inflammation related targets and pathways in a multi-component, multi-target and multi-pathway manner.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVES@#The proliferation, migration capacity, and expression of activation-related proteins of NHGFs+Cal27-exo were determined by coculturing Cal27 exosome (Cal27-exo) with normal human gingival fibroblasts (NHGFs) to explore the effects of Cal27-exo on the activation and biological behavior of NHGFs.@*METHODS@#Cal27-exo was extracted using supercentrifugation, and exosomes were identified using Western blot, transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and particle size detection. Cal27-exo was cocultured with NHGFs to detect the uptake of Cal27-exo by NHGFs, and the proliferation and migration capacity of NHGFs+Cal27-exo were detected using CCK8 and wound healing tests, respectively. The expression levels of NHGF activation-related proteins, i.e., matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9), fibroblast-activating protein (FAP), alpha smooth muscle actin (αSMA), and transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β), were detected using real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR).@*RESULTS@#Cal27-exo was extracted u-sing supercentrifugation, and Western blot showed the positive expression levels of Alix and CD63. TEM showed that Cal27-exo had a circular double-layer vesicle. The particle size was between 30 and 150 nm. Cal27-exo labeled with PKH67 entered NHGFs after the coculture method. The wound healing test showed that the migration capacity of NHGFs+Cal27-exo was stronger after the scratch compared with that of NHGFs. CCK8 results showed that the proliferation activity of NHGFs+Cal27-exo was enhanced. qRT-PCR results showed that the MMP-9 levels of NHGFs+Cal27-exo were upregulated, whereas the TGF-β and αSMA mRNA levels of NHGFs+Cal27-exo were downregulated (@*CONCLUSIONS@#The proliferation and migration ability of NHGFs+Cal27-exo are enhanced, and the mRNA expression of related proteins is changed. Cal27-exo can activate NHGFs, which suggests that Cal27-exo has potential significance in tumor invasion and metastasis.

ABSTRACT

High fat diet induced hyperlipidemia hamster model was used to explore the anti-hyperlipidemia effect of water extract of Moringa oleifera leaves( WEMOL). On this basis,the possible action mechanism was predicted by network pharmacology. Golden hamsters were randomly divided into normal diet group( NFD),high-fat diet group( HFD),simvastatin group,high dose group of WEMOL( HIWEMOL) and low dose group of WEMOL( LOWEMOL). The model was administered simultaneously for 66 days,during which the body weight changes of hamsters were recorded. At the end of the experiment,serum lipid level and serum transaminase level of golden hamsters in each group were detected,and the pathological changes of liver were observed by hematoxylin-eosin( HE) staining. The results showed that WEMOL could significantly decrease the serum total cholesterol( TC),total triglyceride( TG),low density lipoprotein cholesterol( LDL-c) levels,and reduce the lipid deposition in liver tissue,thus improving the hyperlipidemia of golden hamsters. According to the prediction of network pharmacology,219 targets of potential active components of M.oleifera leaves and 185 targets of water-soluble potential active components of M. oleifera leaves for the treatment of hyperlipidemia were obtained separately. The MCODE analysis was performed on the PPI network of 219 targets and 185 targets obtained above and got five and four clusters respectively. The signaling pathway analysis of clusters showed that among the common pathways,nonalcoholic fatty liver,insulin resistance,MAPK signaling pathway,estrogen signaling pathway,cell apoptosis and HIF-1 signaling pathway were associated with hyperlipidemia. In addition,the potential active components of M. oleifera leaves could also inhibit the metabolic inflammation of hyperlipidemia by modulating complement and coagulation cascades signaling pathway,and GSK3 B,F2,AKT1,RELA,SERPINE1 might be the key targets. The water-soluble potential active components of M. oliefera leaves could modulate lipid metabolism by modulating AMPK signaling pathway and JAK-STAT signaling pathway,with PIK3 CB,PIK3 CA,CASP3,AKT1 and BCL2 as the key targets. These results suggested that WEMOL had anti hyperlipidemia effect,and its mechanism might be related to the protein expression regulation of lipid metabolism,nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and atherosclerosis related signaling pathways.

ABSTRACT

Chinese materia medica( CMM) serves as an important cornerstone for the development of traditional Chinese medicine( TCM) culture and industry due to its unique ecological,medical,economic,scientific and technological,and cultural values. The supply shortage and unstable quality of some CMM resources have hindered the development of TCM. Ensuring the sustainable use of CMM resources has become essential for the development of TCM in China. Enriching CMM resources is the key to ensuring the sustainable utilization of TCM resources in China,which can be achieved via expanding the medicinal parts,developing the substitutes,seeking for analogues,exploring the ethnic and folk medicines,or introducing foreign medicinal materials. CMM efficacy or function positioning plays a very important role in the transformation of new CMM resources. The strategies and methods for efficacy or function positioning of new CMM resources,including analogy,plant genetic relationship exploration,medicinal property deduction,ethnobotanical investigation,text mining,network pharmacology,and structure-activity relationship exploration,were systematically proposed in this study based on CMM theory,textual research,and modern methodologies. This paper is expected to provide a theoretical reference for the continuous enrichment and development of CMM resources and the high-quality development of TCM culture and industry.

ABSTRACT

Lancang-Mekong Cooperation is a new type of subregional cooperation mechanism initiated and built by China and other five countries of the Lancang-Mekong subregion, namely Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam. Countries in the Lancang-Mekong subregion are geographically and culturally connected, and they have nurtured their unique traditional medicine. By combing the history of traditional medicine exchanges between China and other Lancang-Mekong countries and their progress of modern research, this paper summarized the challenges and opportunities of traditional medicine cooperation in the Lancang-Mekong subregion. It has been found that many regional cooperation mechanisms coexist for a long time in the Lancang-Mekong subregion and the medicinal resources are abundant. However, the degree of their development and utilization varies, and modern scientific research is insufficient. Lancang-Mekong Cooperation has provided a strong support for integrating the advantageous resources in Lancang-Mekong subregion countries and making progress together. Focusing on the development and protection of medicinal resources, this paper puts forward a new path of cooperation in the intellectual property rights and characteristic seed resource protection, the compilation of universal herbal pharmacopoeia in various countries, the research and development of public health products, and the construction of traditional herbal industry bases, thus enabling the traditional medicine to better protect the public health and building a human health community.

ABSTRACT

During a short period of time, the outbreak of pneumonia caused by a novel coronavirus, named Novel Coronavirus Pneumonia (NCP), was first reported in China, spreading to 24 countries and regions rapidly. The number of confirmed cases and deaths continued to rise. World Health Organization (WHO) announced that the outbreaks of the novel coronavirus have constituted a Public Health Emergency of International Concern. Efficient infection control can prevent the virus from further spreading, which makes the epidemic situation under control. Due to the specialty of oral healthcare settings, the risk of cross infection is severe among patients and oral healthcare practitioners. It's more urgent to implement strict and efficient infection control protocols. This paper, based on existing guidelines and published researches pertinent to dental infection-control principles and practices, mainly discusses epidemiological characteristics of NCP and the features of nosocomial infection in oral healthcare settings, and furthermore provides recommendations on patient's evaluation, and infection control protocols in department of stomatology under current circumstance..

ABSTRACT

The scientific interpretation of the connotation of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) theory is an important part of the development of TCM. Combined ancient classic theories with modern science and technology is a new path for the innovative development of TCM theory. Based on this, taking Zhishi Xiebai Guizhitang as an example, the molecular mining technology of integrative pharmacology-based research platform of TCM V2.0 (TCMIP V2.0) was used to analyze the mechanism of Zhishi Xiebai Guizhitang in preventing and treating gastropathic stomachache. A total of 220 chemical components in Zhishi Xiebai Guizhitang were obtained, and 674 targets were involved, of which 12 core targets directly affected angina pectoris and gastroesophageal reflux disease, including insulin (INS), glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH), RAC-α serine/threonine-protein kinase 1 (AKT1), tumour protein p53 (TP53), albumin (Alb), mitogen-activated protein kinase 3 (MAPK3), interleukin-6 (IL-6), etc. And tumor necrosis factor (TNF) signaling pathway, phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase/protein kinase B (PI3K/Akt) signaling pathway, IL-17 signaling pathway, hypoxia-inducible factor-1 (HIF-1) signaling pathway and other 121 pathways involved in these related diseases. All of these are the biological basis of Weiluo Tongxin theory. Combing the classical theories of TCM combined with the exploring the molecular mechanism of representative prescriptions can provide a demonstration and reference for the scientific connotation research of TCM theory.

ABSTRACT

Moringa has a long history of edible and medicinal use in foreign countries, this paper collected and sorted out the traditional application of Moringa recorded in the ancient medical books and historical materials of countries and regions along the ancient Silk Road. According to preliminary research, the earliest record of Moringa in China can be traced back to The Bower Manuscript(volume Ⅱ)(about the 4 th-6 th century A.D.) unearthed in Kuqa, Xinjiang. Around the 8 th century, with the communication between countries along the ancient Silk Road becoming prosperous, more and more medical books containing Moringa and its prescriptions were introduced to Tibet, Xinjiang and other places in today's China. The leaves, root bark, seeds and stem bark of Moringa all can be used for medicinal purposes and are recorded in The Ayurvedic Pharmacopoeia of India(API). Among them, Moringa leaves have been approved as a new resource food in China. According to the API, it is of cold property and sweet taste, its post-digestive effect is sweet and has the functions of removing wind, bile and fat, relieving pain, killing abdominal worms, moistening skin, brightening eyes and clearing brain. It can be used to treat edema, parasitic diseases, spleen diseases, abscess, tumor, pharyngeal swelling and other diseases. This study explored and organized the historical evidence of communication through the Silk Road and traditional application records of Moringa, in order to provide the evidence of traditional medicine basis, medicine property and efficacy application reference for the realization of the introduction of Moringa as a new resource of traditional Chinese medicine.

ABSTRACT

In December 2019, an outbreak of viral pneumonia began in Wuhan, Hubei Province, which caused the spread of infectious pneumonia to a certain extent in China and neighboring countries and regions, and triggered the epidemic crisis. The coronavirus disease 2019(COVID-19) is an acute respiratory infectious disease listed as a B infectious disease, which is managed according to standards for A infectious disease. Traditional Chinese medicine and integrated traditional Chinese and Western medicine have played an active role in the prevention and control of this epidemic. China's ethnomedicine has recognized infectious diseases since ancient times, and formed a medical system including theory, therapies, formula and herbal medicines for such diseases. Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 epidemic, Tibet Autonomous Region, Qinghai Province, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region and Chuxiong Autonomous Prefecture of Yunnan, Qiandongnan Autonomous Prefecture of Guizhou have issued the prevention and control programs for COVID-19 using Tibetan, Mongolian, Uygur, Yi and Miao medicines. These programs reflect the wisdom of ethnomedicine in preventing and treating diseases, which have successfully extracted prescriptions and preventive measures for the outbreak of the epidemic from their own medical theories and traditional experiences. In this paper, we summarized and explained the prescriptions and medicinal materials of ethnomedicine in these programs, and the origin of Tibetan medicine prescriptions and Mongolian medicine prescriptions in ancient books were studied. These become the common characteristics of medical prevention and treatment programs for ethnomedicine to formulate therapeutic programs under the guidance of traditional medicine theories, recommend prescriptions and prevention and treatment methods with characteristics of ethnomedicine, and focus on the conve-nience and standardization. However, strengthening the support of science and technology and the popularization to the public, and improving the participation of ethnomedicine in national public health services and the capacity-building to deal with sudden and critical diseases are key contents in the development of ethnomedicine in the future.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE To use network pharmacology to predict and analyze the mechanism of Aconite-Ginger against myocardial ischemia. METHODS TCMSP was used to collect the active compounds of Aconite-Ginger and predict the targets of active compounds. At the same time, target sites of anti-myocardial ischemic injury drugs were collected using DisGeNET and CTD database,and then active compounds and target sites were compared.Analyze and screen out the targets of Aconite-Ginger anti-cardiac machine ischemia. GO, KEGG analysis and Aconite-Ginger drug molecule-target were performed on selected targets using MAS 3.0 and Cytoscape 3.3.0 software.RESULTS 27 common targets of Aconite-Ginger anti-ischemia ischemia and 63 signal pathways were predicted. CONCLUSION Aconite-Ginger mainly regulates calcium signal transduction, apoptosis and MAPK signaling pathway, which can also regulate through toll-like receptors, Fc epsilon RI and other signal pathways, so it is speculated that it may participate in regulation Apoptosis, inflammatory response, enhancement of myocardial function, etc., thereby exerting an anti-ischemic effect. It laid a good foundation for further revealing its mechanism of action.
