Authors: Dourado M, Cavalcanti F, Vilar L, Cantilino A Abstract CKD has a high prevalence worldwide, mainly due to its main etiologies-diabetes and hypertension. It has high cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, with traditional risk factors such as atherosclerosis, hypertension, diabetes, smoking, and left ventricular hypertrophy being common. Nontraditional cardiovascular risk factors, such as anemia, hyperparathyroidism, chronic inflammation, and microalbuminuria, are also well studied. Prolactin is a hormone not only related to lactation but also being considered a uremic toxin by some authors. It accumulates...

Conclusions: Maternal serum TG/HDL levels at late gestation are positively associated with neonatal body weight and the risk of macrosomia in women without DM. Maintaining maternal lipid levels in an appropriate range is important in the context of fetal overgrowth and primary prevention of macrosomia. PMID: 32655633 [PubMed]

This study aimed to explore the protective effects of Wenshen-Yanggan decoction on dopaminergic (DA) neuron injury in a rotenone-induced mouse model with chronic Parkinson's disease (PD) and explore its mechanism of action. Ultraperformance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-MS/MS) was used to measure the content of six main components in the Wenshen-Yanggan decoction. The chronic PD mouse model was established by treating 10-month-old healthy wild C57BL/6 male mice with rotenone 30 mg/kg/day for 28 days in succession. The pole test and rotarod test were applied to detect the rescue effect of Wensh...

Authors: Omidifar N, Nili-Ahmadabadi A, Gholami A, Dastan D, Ahmadimoghaddam D, Nili-Ahmadabadi H Abstract Materials and Methods: Thirty-six male Wistar rats were divided into six groups: groups 1, 2, and 3 received vehicle, Cd (100 mg/L/day by drinking water), and A. hirtifolium extract (200 mg/kg/day; orally), respectively. Groups 4, 5, and 6 were Cd groups which were treated with A. hirtifolium extract (50, 100, and 200 mg/kg/day, respectively). After 2 weeks, liver enzymes such as alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), and alkaline phosphatase (ALP) and also oxida...

Authors: Niu Y, Zhou L, Meng L, Chen S, Ma C, Liu Z, Kang W Abstract Seeds of the genus Nigella plants as folk medicine are often used to prevent and treat asthma, diarrhea, dyslipidemia, and other diseases around the world. Pharmacological researches showed that seed extract and seed oil have antibacterial, antioxidant, hypoglycemic, and hepatoprotective effects which attributed to their bioactive constituents such as alkaloids, saponins, flavones, and phenols. This paper has covered recent progresses on chemical and pharmacological researches on these plants, including their compounds and pharmacological effects....
