ABSTRACT

According to the 2020 world cancer data report, the prevalence of prostate cancer ranks second in male malignant tumors and the mortality fifth. In China, due to the poor living and eating habits, the prevalence of prostate cancer is still rising, and advanced prostate cancer can adapt to and tolerate androgen castration related drugs through a variety of mechanisms, which often indicates poor therapeutic outcomes in the late stage. Houttuyniae Herba, a medicinal plant of family Saururaceae, has been officially identified both as food and medicine by the National Health Commission. The existing studies have shown that Houttuyniae Herba inhibits the proliferation, migration, and invasion of prostate cancer and induces its apoptosis and cell cycle arrest via multiple targets, links, and pathways. These anti-tumor activities can also be observed in breast cancer, leukemia, gastric cancer, colorectal cancer, and other tumor cells. Such activities are mainly related to the inhibited expression of cyclin and cyclin-dependent kinase, regulation of apoptosis-related proteins, activation of apoptosis-related pathways, reduced secretion of matrix metalloproteinase, inhibition of activator of transcription 3 (STAT3)/Zinc finger protein (Snail) / transcription factor twist signaling pathway, and antagonization of growth factor receptor, androgen, inflammation, and oxidative stress in promoting the occurrence and development of prostate cancer. In addition, Houttuyniae Herba is able to alleviate diabetes, regulate blood glucose-lowering pathways, and boost immunity by inhibiting the protein kinase B (Akt)/mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) and mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) signaling pathways, thus suppressing the occurrence and progression of prostatic cancer. In conclusion,Houttuyniae Herba can be used as a potential drug against prostate cancer.

ABSTRACT

Recently, the epidemic of novel coronavirus pneumonia (COVID-19) in China and other countries in the world is serious. There are at present no effective treatments for COVID-19. The safety and effectiveness of western anti-coronavirus drugs are under investigation. In many places in China, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has been used to treat COVID-19 with a high clinical cure rate. The treatment economics of TCM is good. The immune-regulating and antiviral TCM can enhance human immunity and exert an antiviral effect. They have been widely used in the anti-COVID-19 treatment. We consulted the database of CNKI, Wanfang, VIP and PubMed for screening the immune-regulating and antiviral TCMs (Glycyrrhizae Radix et Rhizoma, Pogostemonis Herba, Lonicerae Japonicae Flos, Scutellariae Radix, Forsythiae Fructus, Magnoliae Officinalis Cortex, Bupleuri Radix, Isatidis Radix, Rhei Radix et Rhizoma, Astragali Radix, and Houttuyniae Herba). This article summarizes the physicochemical and pharmacokinetic characteristics, and the clinical application of the effective components of immune-regulating and antiviral TCM in the prescriptions and Chinese patent medicines, in order to provide a better reference for the clinical application of TCM.

ABSTRACT

Objective:The homogeneity regularity of "imprinting templates" of compound preparation of traditional Chinese medicine(TCM) was revealed, which provided the basis for effectively controlling the quality of compound preparation of TCM, by clarifying the dynamic changeability in number and content of volatile ingredients in different batches of Houttuyniae Herba. Method:The volatile oil of Houttuyniae Herba was extracted by steam distillation.The volatile components in 11 batches of Houttuyniae Herba were determined by GC-MS(electron ionization, ion source temperature of 230℃, detection range of m/z 40-500) combined with literature and ChemicalBook database.The relative content of each component was calculated by peak area normalization method and analyzed by the total quantum statistical moments of fingerprint. Result:There were only 15 common ingredients in the volatile oil from 11 batches of Houttuyniae Herba, accounting for 3.35%of total number and 73.94%of total content, while the number of non-common ingredients was 433, accounting for 96.65%of total number.However, the RSD of total quantum first moment of GC-MS fingerprint was 6.8%, the RSD of total quantum second moment was 14.8%(RSD of standard deviation was 7.4%), and the RSD of similarity of total quantum statistical moment was 3.8%.The type and content of volatile ingredients in Houttuyniae Herba were heterogeneous, but their chromatographic behavior of GC-MS fingerprint was uniform, the whole "imprinting templates" was similar. Conclusion:The total quantum statistical moment(similarity) of TCM fingerprint is applicable to quality control of dynamic Chinese medicines, which will play a breakthrough role in the study of homogeneity and stability of material reference and compound preparation for ancient classical formulas.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To research the protective effects of different extracts from Compound Houttuyniae Herba (CHH) and its mechanism through JAK/STAT-SOCS-1 signaling pathway. Methods: The normal group comprised db/m mice (n = 8). db/db mice were randomly divided into seven groups with eight mice in each group according to the applied treatment method: model group, metformin hydrochloride (MH) group, AG490 group, water extract (WE) group, ethanol extract (EE) group, volatile oil (VO) group, and mixture (MG) group (mixture of above three extract) of CHH. After 8 weeks, the general status, biochemical indicators, and renal histological changes in the mice were evaluated, the total RNA and protein were collected and RT-PCR method was used to examine the effect on mRNA expression of JAK2, STAT3, SOCS1, and Western blot method was used to detect the protein expression of JAK2, P-JAK2, STAT3, P-STAT3, SOCS1, c-fos, and c-jun. Immunofluorescence was used to observe the protein expression of c-fos and c-jun in kidney tissue. Results: Compared with normal group, the serum level of TGF-β1, FN of EE, VO, and MG groups were decreased (P < 0.05). Renal function was also improved but not significantly. Also, the renal histology was improved especially in the mixture group. The protein expression of JAK2, STAT3, P-JAK2, P-STAT3, and the genetic expression of JAK2 and STAT3 in kidney tissue were significantly increased in the model group (P < 0.05). Compared with the model group, the expression of P-JAK2 and P-STAT3 was down-regulated in treatment groups; The expression of SOCS-1 of VO and mixture groups were elevated (P < 0.05). Conclusion: CHH has beneficial effects on diabetic renal injury, which may protect and improve the kidney function and reduce urinary protein, maintain the integrity of the kidney structure and function.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To establish a method for simultaneous determination of the contents of six main active constituents (neochlorogenic acid, chlorogenic acid, rutin, hyperin, isoquercitrin, and quercitrin) in Houttuyniae Herba by quantitative analysis of multi-components by single marker (QAMS). Methods: The chromatographic separation was achieved on a Kromasil C18 column (250 mm × 4.6 mm, 5 μm), the mobile phase was acetonitrile-0.1% phosphoric acid aqueous with gradient elution and changeable wavelength detection. Chlorogenic acid was used as the reference, the calibration factor of other five constituents to that of chlorogenic acid was calculated respectively to get each relative calibration factor. And the contents of the active constituents were calculated by the relative calibration factor to realize QAMS. At the same time, the external standard method was used to detect the contents of the six constituents, comparing the two methods to validate the accuracy and feasibility of the new method. Results: No significant differences were found in the quantitative results of the six active constituents in Houttuyniae Herba determined by measured value and calculated value. The amounts of the six active constituents in the different parts of Houttuyniae Herba were found to be varied, chlorogenic acids and flavonoids mainly distributed in the leaves. Conclusion: The active constituents of Houttuyniae Herba mainly distribute in the leaves. The QAMS is feasible and accurate to evaluate the contents of the six active constituents in Houttuyniae Herba.
