The purpose of this study was to investigate the biodistribution of Salvianolic acid B in rats blood and brain after intranasal administration and explore its feasibility and evaluate its brain targeting effect. The concentration of Salvianolic acid B in blood and brain following nasal administration (32 mgċkg(-1)) was measured combining with microdialysis sampling and liquid chromatograph-mass spectrometer/MS detection technology. After the microdialysis samples were corrected with in vivo recoveries, the pharmacokinetic parameters were obtained by using non-compartment model and the brain targeting evaluated by the value of drug targeting index (DTI)...

The quality of Danshen extract granules on market is largely different from each other mainly due to the heterogeneous quality of raw materials of Salvia miltiorrhiza, various producing procedures and lack of good quality evaluation method. Formula granule and "standard decoction" have the same quality. In this paper, a systematic evaluation method for the quality of Danshen decoction was established from the perspective of "standard decoction", in order to explore the main factors affecting the quality uniformity of Danshen extract granules...

BackgroundAims: Salvianolic acid B (SalB) is a natural polyphenolic compound enriched in Salvia miltiorrhiza Bunge. Our study was designed to explore the role of Sal B on cognitive impairment in vascular dementia (VD) model rats, as well as its possible molecular mechanisms. METHODS: Rats were randomly divided into four groups (n = 15 for each group): Control group, Sal B group (normal Sprague Dawley rats treated with Sal B), VD group and VD + Sal B group. The VD group rats were established by permanent bilateral common carotid artery occlusion (BCCAO)...

In this study, we analyzed danshen (Salvia miltiorrhiza) constituents using biopartitioning and microemulsion high-performance liquid chromatography (MELC). The quantitative retention-activity relationships (QRARs) of the constituents were established to model their pharmacokinetic (PK) parameters and chromatographic retention data, and generate their biological effectiveness fingerprints. A high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) method was established to determine the abundance of the extracted danshen constituents, such as sodium danshensu, rosmarinic acid, salvianolic acid B, protocatechuic aldehyde, cryptotanshinone, and tanshinone IIA...

The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of salvianolic acid B (Sal B) and danshensu (DSU) on the osteogenic differentiation of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and the mechanisms of the effects. The osteogenic differentiation of MSCs in culture was assessed by measuring alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity, osteocalcin (OCN) production, nitric oxide (NO) production and the mRNA expression levels of osteoprotegerin (OPG) and its ligand by MSCs. MSCs were successfully induced to differentiate into osteoblasts and adipocytes...

The present study tested the hypotheses that bone morphogenetic protein 2(BMP-2) combined with salvianolic acid B(Sal-B) enhance the differentiation of rat bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) towards cardiomyocytes in vitro. BMSCs were treated with BMP-2 and Sal-B, alone or in combination, for 72 h, then added new media (excluding inductive substance) and cultured for 4 weeks. The morphologic characteristics, surface antigens and mRNA expression of several transcription factors were also assessed. We found that they could all be identified by the positive staining for cardiomyocyte-specific proteins, desmin and cardiac troponin T, in these cells...

Deep eutectic solvent (DES), the benign green solvent with uniquely physical properties, has been widely applied in various fields. Our previous study indicated that DES could improve the stability and extraction efficiency of salvianolic acid B (SAB). In this work, with SAB as a model drug, the feasibility of DES as a drug carrier for oral preparation was investigated by evaluating the influence of DES on the pharmacokinetics of SAB and the toxicity of DES. Acute oral toxicity test illustrated that choline chloride-glycerol (ChCl-GL, molar ratio 1:2) was non-toxic with the median lethal dose of 7733mg/kg...

Blood glucose fluctuations, also referred to as intermittent high glucose, have been validated to be more harmful than sustained high glucose in exacerbating pancreatic dysfunction by inducing β cell apoptosis. Salvianolic acid B (Sal B), an aqueous component of Salvia miltiorrhiza, has been proved beneficial to pancreatic islet function in diabetes, but the underlying mechanisms remain to be elucidated. The present study investigated the protective effect of Sal B on INS-1 cells exposed to intermittent high glucose and the possible mechanisms implicated...

Previously, we only apply a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) Danshen-Chuanxiong-Honghua (DCH) for cardioprotection via anti-inflammation in rats of acute myocardial infarction by occluding coronary artery. Presently, we select not only DCH but also its main absorbed compound ferulic acid (FA) for cerebra protection via similar action of mechanism above in animals of the transient middle cerebral artery occlusion (tMCAO). We investigated whether oral administration of DCH and FA could ameliorate MCAO-induced brain lesions in animals...

Yerba mate (Ilex paraguariensis) is a plant that grows naturally in South America. From its leaves and thin stems different kinds of beverages are prepared (chimarrão, tererê and tea mate), all of them rich in bioactive substances. The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of in vitro gastrointestinal digestion and colonic fermentation on the stability of the polyphenols and on the antioxidant, antimicrobial and antitumoral activities of the yerba mate beverages. The phenolic chromatographic profile revealed that both the in vitro digestion and the colonic fermentation caused a pronounced decrease in 3,5-O-dicaffeoylquinic acid and 5-O-caffeoylquinic acid in the preparations...

Salvianolic acid B (Sal B) is a major water-soluble bioactive component of Salvia miltiorrhiza, which is a traditional Chinese medicine. We investigated the ways in which Sal B affects high-fat diet (HFD)-induced immunological function disorder remission using a C57BL/6 mouse model. We gave groups of C57BL/6 mice a normal diet (Control), a normal diet supplemented with Sal B (Control + Sal B), a high-fat diet (HF), and a high-fat diet supplemented with Sal B (HF + Sal B) for 10 wk. Sal B supplementation decreased the body weight and plasma lipids, increased the fecal excretion of lipids, prevented the accumulation of chronic oxidative stress, and reversed the disproportionality of CD3(+) CD4(+) and CD3(+) CD8(+) T lymphocytes compared to HFD...
