Effects of Valerianae Radix et Rhizoma extract on psychological stress in mice. - Pharmacognosy magazine
The aim of this study was to identify the effects of Valerianae Radix et Rhizoma water extract (VRe) originated from Valeriana fauriei Briquet on reducing psychological stress (PS) on mice.Mice were put under PS with communication box method: Restraining mice and forcing to see other mice underfoot shock stress.Measurements on plasma corticosterone, noradrenaline and lipid peroxidation, and elevated plus-maze (EPM) tests were carried out to determine the effect of VRe administration on physiological and behavioral responses of mice.VRe showed anxiolytic effects in plasma corticosterone, noradrenaline, and EPM transfer latency levels, but it did not show any significant effects on the other indicators.V. fauriei, which has been used as a natural anxiolytic drug, exerts positive effects in the communication box induced PS in mice.
A study on Yangsaeng (health management) of Korean older adults by 4 constitution types. - Holistic nursing practice
This study examined and compared the level of Yangsaeng (health management) of the Korean older adults by 4 constitution types. The study was a cross-sectional design. The participants were 189 elderly participants in South Korea. Data were collected using a demographic characteristics form, 4 Constitution Types Scale and Yangsaeng (health management) Scale. In findings, first, the level of Yangsaeng (health management) of lesser yang person was significantly better than those of greater yin person and lesser yin person. Second, greater yin person scored the highest in moral and sexual life Yangsaeng (health management), lesser yang person scored the highest in mind and diet Yangsaeng (health management), and lesser yin person scored the highest in activity and rest, sleep, and seasonal health Yangsaeng (health management).
Oxidative stress in subsynovial connective tissue of idiopathic carpal tunnel syndrome. - Journal of orthopaedic research : official publication of the Orthopaedic Research Society
Ischemic-reperfusion injury is thought to be a cause of idiopathic carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). The purpose of this study was to determine whether oxidative stress caused by ischemia-reperfusion injury in subsynovial connective tissue is associated with idiopathic CTS and its symptoms. Bioptic samples of tenosynovial tissue were collected from 20 idiopathic CTS patients during surgery. Control specimens of tenosynovial tissue were collected from eight non-CTS patients. Analysis included histological and immunohistochemical examination for the distribution of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS), nuclear factor (NF)-ÎºÎ², and transforming growth factor (TGF)-Î² RI in subsynovial connective tissues. Histological examinations showed a marked increase in fibroblast density and vascular proliferation in specimens from CTS patients. The expressions of eNOS, NF-ÎºÎ², and TGF-Î² RI in fibroblasts and vascular endothelial cells of subsynovial connective tissues of patients were significantly higher than in those of controls. A significant positive correlation was found between the subjective symptom severity of CTS, and the immunoreactivities of eNOS and NF-ÎºÎ². This study suggests that oxidative stress in subsynovial connective tissue is related to CTS and its symptoms.Â© 2010 Orthopaedic Research Society.
