Lung transplantation is an effective therapy for end-stage patients with chronic respiratory failure due to various benign lung diseases. The organ shortage crisis is a serious problem, so it is required to develop alternative therapies. There have been reports of organ organoids ameliorating organ function but there have been few reports of lung organoids being capable of restoring respiratory function. We therefore hypothesized that immature mouse fetal lungs would ameliorate severe respiratory failure and connect the airways between recipient and donor lungs.

Authors: Zuo CY, Lv P, Zhang CS, Lei RX, Zhou W, Wu QF, Luo L, Tang Y, Yin HY, Yu SG Abstract The aim of this study was to investigate whether contralateral moxibustion would generate a similar analgesic effect with ipsilateral moxibustion. Contra- and ipsilateral moxibustion were separately applied to Zusanli (ST36) acupoints of inflammatory pain mice. The analgesic effect was evaluated, respectively, by licking/biting time (LBT) of formalin-induced inflammatory pain and thermal withdrawal latency (TWL) of complete Freund's adjuvant- (CFA-) induced inflammatory pain. For formalin-induced pain, compared with formal...

Authors: Zhu J, Yi X, Zhang Y, Pan Z, Zhong L, Huang P Abstract To provide evidence for the better clinical use of traditional Chinese medicine preparations (TCMPs), comparison of the pharmacological mechanisms between TCMPs with similar therapeutic effect is necessary. However, methodology for dealing with this issue is still scarce. Danhong injection (DHI) and Naoxintong capsule (NXT) are representative TCMPs for ischemic stroke (IS) treatment, which are also frequently used in combination. Here they were employed as research objects to demonstrate the feasibility of systems pharmacology approach in elucidation o...
