The aim of this study was to investigate the pharmacodynamic, pharmacokinetic and tissue distribution alternations of DGD in normal and constipation mice. DGD exhibited stronger purgative effect in constipation mice by the increased fecal excretion and reduced first defection time compared with normal mice. The Cmax, AUC0-t an...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThis paper seeks to highlight GI motility disorders that are frequently present in patients with a malignancy. GI dysmotility can occur due to the cancer itself or as a consequence of medical and surgical treatments. Often, symptoms are nonspecific and the diagnosis requires a high index of suspicion. The goal of the paper is to review the common motility problems seen in patients with cancer, their clinical manifestations, and options for management.Recent FindingsStudies show that newer endoscopy techniques such as endoscopic mucosal dissection can cause esophageal dysmotility. Opioid-induced con...

Guo-Ying Zhou The root of Gentiana straminea Maxim. (Gentianaceae), is officially listed as “Qin-Jiao” in the Chinese Pharmacopoeia for the treatment of rheumatic arthritis, icteric hepatitis, constipation, pain, and hypertension. To establish the geographical origin traceability in G. straminea, its chemical profiles were determined by a UPLC-Q exactive mass spectrometer, from which 43 compounds were identified by comparing retention times and mass spectrometry. Meanwhile, a pair of isomers (loganin and secologanol) was identified by mass spectrometry based on their fragmentation pathway. A total...

quo; Anna Janecka Morphine, which acts through opioid receptors, is one of the most efficient analgesics for the alleviation of severe pain. However, its usefulness is limited by serious side effects, including analgesic tolerance, constipation, and dependence liability. The growing awareness that multifunctional ligands which simultaneously activate two or more targets may produce a more desirable drug profile than selectively targeted compounds has created an opportunity for a new approach to developing more effective medications. Here, in order to better understand the role of the neurokinin system in opioid-induc...

In this study, the transport function of colon of rats in each group was detected by activated carbon method, and the number of fecal residues in the colon was observed. The mRNA expression of c-kit gene in intestinal tissue of rat was detected by real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR). In addition, the changes of ICC in rats treated with different drugs were detected by immunohistochemical method. The results revealed that in the tong bian decoction gavage group, the water content in the feces of rats was remarkably increased (P
