Liver fibrosis is a common pathological process for chronic liver injury caused by multiple etiological factors and an inevitable phase leading to liver cirrhosis. According to the previous studies, hesperidin (HDN) shows a very good protective effect on CCl4-induced chemical hepatic fibrosis in rats. In this experiment, based on the findings of the previous studies, a platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF)-induced HSC-T6 model was established to observe the inhibitory effect of HDN on HSC-T6 proliferation. The ELISA method was adopted to detect the content of collagen I in HSC-T6 supernatant...

Cardiac remodelling is a major determinant of heart failure (HF) and is characterised by cardiac hypertrophy, fibrosis, oxidative stress and myocytes apoptosis. Hesperetin, which belongs to the flavonoid subgroup of citrus flavonoids, is the main flavonoid in oranges and possesses multiple pharmacological properties. However, its role in cardiac remodelling remains unknown. We determined the effect of hesperetin on cardiac hypertrophy, fibrosis and heart function using an aortic banding (AB) mouse. Male, 8-10-week-old, wild-type C57 mice with or without oral hesperetin administration were subjected to AB or a sham operation...

Hesperidin found in citrus fruits has been reported to be a promising bioactive compound for maintaining an optimal bone status in ovariectomized rodent models. In this study, we examined the capacity of hesperetin (Hp) to affect the proliferation, differentiation and mineralization of rodent primary osteoblasts. Then, the impact of Hp on signalling pathways known to be implicated in bone formation was explored. We exposed osteoblasts to physiological concentrations of 1 microM Hp (Hp1) and 10 microM Hp (Hp10)...
