A simple, rapid, and sensitive liquid chromatographic method has been established for the simultaneous analysis of three compounds (narirutin, hesperidin and naringin), in granule decoctions of Fructus Aurantii-type formulae. The compounds were separated in less than 10 min using a C18 column with gradient elution using (A) acetonitrile, (B) water, and (C) acetic acid at a flow rate of 0.3 mL/min, and with a PDA detector. The method was validated for specificity, accuracy, precision, and limits of detection. Good linear regression data (r2 > 0.9980) were obtained for all the calibration plots within the ranges tested. The method is an attractive alternative for quality control and clinical monitor of granule decoctions of Fructus Aurantii-type formulae.

Dan-Shen-Yin (DSY) is a well-known traditional Chinese formula which is widely used in clinical practice for the treatment of coronary heart disease (CHD) and has produced a favorable effect in China. The present study was designed to examine whether or not acute oral DSY can protect the heart against myocardial infarction in acute myocardial ischemic rats. If so, we would then investigate the anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant mechanisms involved. The left anterior descending coronary artery was occluded to induce myocardial ischemia in the hearts of Sprague-Dawley rats. At the end of the 3-h ischemic period (or 24 h for infarction size), we measured the myocardial infarction size, inflammatory factors and the activities of anti-oxidative enzymes. DSY reduced the infarction size and the serum levels of C-reactive protein, interleukin-6, tumour necrosis factor- and malondialdehyde and increased the activities of superoxide dismutase and the serum levels of glutathione. The results show that DSY exerts significant cardioprotective effects against acute ischemic myocardial injury in rats, possibly through its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties, and may thus be used as a potential therapeutic reagent for the treatment of CHD.
