The treatment effect and signaling pathway regulation effects of kidney-tonifying traditional Chinese medicine on osteoporosis have been widely studied, but there is no systematic summary currently. This review comprehensively collected and analyzed the traditional Chinese medicines on the treatment and signaling pathway regulation of osteoporosis in recent ten years, such as Epimedii Folium, Drynariae Rhizoma, Cnidii Fructus, Eucommiae Cortex, Psoraleae Fructus and Dipsaci Radix. Based on the existing findings, the following conclusions were obtained: ①kidney-tonifying traditional Chinese medicine treated osteoporosis mainly through BMP-Smads, Wnt/ β -catenin, MAPK, PI3K/AKT signaling pathway to promote osteoblast bone formation and through OPG/RANKL/ RANK, estrogen, CTSK signaling pathway to inhibit osteoclasts of bone resorption...

BACKGROUND: Arsenic poisoning is a serious medical condition caused by consumption of contaminated food and water. Cardiovascular toxicity is one of the important risk factors associated with arsenic toxicity. AIM: To elucidate efficacy and possible mechanism of action of naringin in arsenic-induced cardiac toxicity in laboratory rats. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Arsenic toxicity was induced in Sprague-Dawley rats by sodium arsenite (5 mg/kg, p...

CONTEXT: Wound healing is a consequence of a complex process involving inflammatory, proliferative, and remodeling phases. Naringin, a flavanone glycoside, is associated with modulation of various oxido-inflammatory and growth factors. AIM: The aim of this study is to evaluate the wound-healing activity of naringin ointment formulation (NOF) on experimental wound models. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A soft paraffin-based cream containing 1, 2, and 4% (w/w) naringin was formulated and evaluated for physicochemical characters...

Ozone oxidation can easily produce peroxides containing active free radicals that can be used for the surface modification of biomaterials. This process is highly efficient and nontoxic. In this research, naringin, an HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor that can promote bone formation, was immobilized onto a chitosan film using ozone activation. First, a chitosan film was treated by ozone to produce peroxides; these peroxides were then quantified and their amount was optimized by an iodide assay. For the in vitro delivery of naringin, a chitosan-naringin substrate was immersed in phosphate-buffered saline to quantify the released amount of naringin...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase

"primary prevention of cancer"
(heart or cardiac or cardio*) AND arrest -"American Heart Association"
