...of various diseases like ischemia, Budd-Chiari syndrome, myocardial infarction, brain stroke and myocardial infarction. Strain improvement is an important approach for its hyper production. In this connection, wild bacterial strain Streptococcus equisimilis was mutagenized using ethidium bromide and UV radiation. The colonies (15 each) showing > 1% survival rate at 150 min of UV exposure and 12 % survival at 0.5 mg/ml of ethidium bromide for 120 min ...

... factors in the cerebral ischemia-reperfusion mice model and to assess the protection mechanism of cerebral ischemia-reperfusion injury. The repeated cerebral ischemia-reperfusion mice model was used where bilateral common carotid artery was targeted to block blood flow, reperfusion and then re-blocking the arteries. Brain tissues were examined 24 hours post-drug administration to determin...

...ells in areas of cardiac ischemia is a significant factor in the repair and enhancement of heart injury. This role of endogenic cardiac stem cells can be regulated by factors. Numerous causes, such as paracrine and autocrine factors, extracellular matrixes and genetic factors. In general, it is well known that these variables could have an appropriate role to improve the effectiveness of the treatment of heart lesions. The work of cytokines and growth factors ...

...Rat model of whole liver ischemia-reperfusion injury was established according to Pringle’s method. Results showed that compared with propofol group and vitexin group, levels of serum ALT, AST and LDH in propofol + vitexin group were reduced (P < 0.05), apoptosis index was reduced (P < 0.05), Bcl-2 protein expression was increased (P < 0.05), Bax protein and caspase-3 protein expression was decreased (P < 0.05). In conclusion, propofol and vi...

Left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), left ventricular end-diastolic diameter (LVEDd) and left ventricular end-systolic diameter (LVESd) of SD rats were measured by echocardiography, and the mRNA expression level of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma co-activator 1-a (PGC1 a), superoxide dismutase (SOD2) and citrate synthase (C...

Group-1 was given saline for 2 weeks and on 11th day DOX 18mg/kg was given intraperitoneally. Group-2, Group-3, Group-4 rats pre-treated orally with the leaf extract of C. colocynthis 250mg/kg, 500mg/kg, 750mg/kg respectively for 14 successive days and on 11th-day DOX was inoculated, while group-5 was used as positive control and was given dexrazoxan...

In the present study, 369 patients suffering from myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury who were diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in our hospital from January 2018 to May 2019 were selected as study subjects and randomly divided into low-dose propofol group (n=123; intravenously injected with 25 mg before angiography), high-dose propofol group (...

... injury after intestinal ischemia and hypoxia is a complex and comprehensive disease with a poor prognosis and high fatality rate. However, whether it can promote or slow down intestinal ischemia-reperfusion injury remains unclear. Spermophilus dauricus is a hibernation animal with a short awake time that interrupts the long hibernation period. When these events occurred, the long-term ischemic intestine in hibernation rapid...

...his work, the myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury (MIRI) model was established to investigate the protective mechanism of VAP on MIRI in rats. Total 90 male Sprague Dawley (SD) rats were divided into the control, model (MIRI), positive (Diltiazem, DLZ, 20 mg/kg), VAP high, medium, low dose (VAP 300, 200, and 100 mg/kg) groups. After 21 days of intragastric administration, the electrocardiogram (ECG) changes in each group were detected. The activities of lac...

...of PF against myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury, in this study, the H/R model of H9C2 cells was established by hypoxia for 3 h and reoxygenation for 3 h. H9C2 cells were divided into 4 groups, the control, PF + control group, H/R group and H/R + PF group. The activities of aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) were measured by colorimetry; Apoptosis rate and reactive oxygen species (ROS) content were measured by flow cytometry; ...

...l insult can result from ischemia, drugs, renal obstruction, inflammation, or extensive muscle injury. The current study focused only on Rhabdomyolysis-induced AKI. We make an attempt to uncover the preventive efficacy of cinnamic acid (CA) and CA-conjugated gold nanoparticles (CA-AuNPs) against rhabdomyolysis-induced AKI induced in mice. CA (50 mg/Kg) and CA-AuNPs (30 mg/Kg) were given to the animals for four days. On the fourth day and after 24 h of water de...
