The Therapeutics Effects and Toxic Risk of Heracleum persicum Desf. Extract on Streptozotocin-Induced Diabetic Rats

Publication date: Available online 3 August 2018Source: Toxicology ReportsAuthor(s): Elif Ebru Alkan, Ismail CelikAbstractThere is an increasing interest against to fight of diabetes by using hypoglycemic plants in the world. The public thinks that Heracleum persicum (HP) has antidiabetic effect local consumer in Turkey. As far as our literature survey, no studies have been reported so far on antidiabetic effects and toxic risk potential of the HP lyophilized extract supplementation used in this study. The aim of this study, for the first time, was to investigate the therapeutic effects of diabetic complications, antioxidant properties and toxic risk potential of HP against experimentaly streptozotocin (STZ) induced diabetes in rats, which were evaluated by measuring the level of serum biomarker releated diabetes complications changes such glucose, insülin, c-peptide, lipid profile (LP), hepatic and renal damage biomarkers (HRDB), glucosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c), antioxidant defence system constituents (ADSCs), malondialdehyde (MDA) content measured in erythrocyte, brain, kidney and liver tissues, and α-glucosidase activitiy of small intestine. The plant aqueous extract was allowed to freeze-dried under a vacuum at -54 °C to obtain a fine lyophilized extract. The study was performed on STZ-induced diabetic rats (45 mg/kg, body weight (bw), intraperitonally) designed as normal control (NC), diabetic control (DC), diabetes + acarbose ...

ConclusionNeedle flexor tenotomies are a relatively safe and effective treatment compared to tenotomies done by scalpel, both as treatment for ulcers and to prevent formation of new ulcers associated with hammer, mallet and claw toe deformities. As a side note, transfer complications are avoidable if all toes on one or both feet are tenotomized in one procedure.

ConclusionOur study showed a significant association between alterations in intestinal microbial composition and T1D; however, in some articles, it is not clear which one happens first. Investigation of altered gut microbiota can help in the early detection of T1D before seropositivity. Targeted microbiome modulation can be a novel potential therapeutic strategy.

This study aims to explore the role of lncRNAs in the glucometabolic action of metformin on skeletal muscle cells.Main methodsMetformin accumulation was assessed using [14C]-metformin. A lncRNA array was used to investigate metformin-regulated lncRNAs in C2C12 skeletal muscle cells. Knockdown studies were applied to evaluate the function of lncRNA Dreh. A colorimetric assay was used for the measurement of medium glucose concentration; glucose transport was assessed using [3H]-2-deoxyglucose; real-time PCR was used for RNA expression analysis, and western blotting was used to assess protein expression in myotubes. A Dreh ov...

Potential therapeutic effect of SO₂ on fibrosis. Histol Histopathol. 2019 Oct 11;:18169 Authors: Wang XB, Cui H, Du JB Abstract Fibrosis is a pathological feature of most chronic diseases and leads to the dysfunction of various organs. However, there is currently no effective method for treating fibrosis. In recent years, a small gas, sulfur dioxide (SO₂), which can be generated endogenously in mammals, has been found to have vasorelaxation activity, improve cardiac function and decrease myocardial injury. Endogenous SO₂ also mediates the process of fibrosis. Inhibition of endogenous SO₂ can ag...

Metformin, the first choice drug for type 2 diabetes treatment in all stages of therapy, and one of the most widely prescribed anti-hyperglycemic agent worldwide, represents a rare example of an old drug which continues to display new beneficial effects in various fields. However, lactic acidosis (LA) persists as a serious adverse effect. LA incidence is low and is not necessarily determined by the administration of metformin. Unfortunately, the concern for this complication has negatively affected the drug use, particularly in chronic kidney disease, which may impair drug excretion, and in congestive heart failure and chr...
