Chronic heart failure (CHF) is not only a leading cause of death, hospitalization, and rehospitalization, but also significantly decreases quality of life (QoL). This study aims to evaluate published clinical trials of oral Chinese herbal medicine (OCHM) for improvement of QoL in patients with CHF that employ the Minnesota Living with Heart Failure Questionnaire (MLHFQ) score as an outcome measure. A systematic literature search was performed using five databases up to June 2013 to identify randomized control trials (RCTs). RCTs involving OCHM plus conventional medicine treatment (CMT) with or without blinding, compared with CMT with or without placebo, with MLHFQ score as an outcome measure were identified. The methodological quality of RCTs was assessed independently using the Cochrane Handbook for Systematic Review of Interventions. RevMan 5.2.5 and Stata 11.0 were used for data analysis. Thirty-eight RCTs with a total of 3,170 participants were identified. The majority of the included trials were assessed to be of high clinical heterogeneity and poor methodological quality. The main results of meta-analysis showed improvement of total MLHFQ score when OCHM plus CMT compared with CMT with or without placebo [MD = -5.71 (-7.07, -4.36), p < 0.01]. There is some encouraging evidence of OCHM combined with CMT for the improvement of QoL in CHF patients. However, the evidence remains weak due to the small sample size, high clinical heterogeneity, and poor methodological quality of the included trials. Further, large sample size and well-designed trials are needed.

International Journal of Medicinal Mushrooms | Year: 2010
The antinociceptive activity of agaricoglycerides extracted from mycelium of Ling Zhi or Reishi medicinal mushroom, Ganoderma lucidum (AMG) was studied. The writhing test, formalin test, and hot-plate test, as well as the in vitro neurolysin inhibition assay, were respectively used to evaluate the antinociceptive activity of agaricoglycerides. The extracted agaricoglycerides inhibited acetic acid-induced abdominal constrictions in mice in a dose-dependent manner (P < .05). Both phases of response to the formalin test were also significantly inhibited (P < .05). The results from the hot-plate test showed that the extract significantly (P < .05) inhibited the reaction time to thermal stimuli at 30, 60, and 90 min after application. In the neurolysin inhibition assay, AMG showed strong activities against neurolysin (IC50 = 100 nM). Our results indicate that if the same effects in humans or higher animals are shown, AMG may have potential applications as a component of analgesic food/feed and possibly even as a medicine. © 2010 by Begell House, Inc.

Inflammation | Year: 2012
The purpose of the present study was to investigate the antibacterial and anti-inflammatory activity of Angelica sinensis extract (AE), Sophora flavescens extract (SE), and herb pair A. sinensis and S. flavescens extract (HPE). Endotoxin-induced uveitis (EIU) was induced in rats by a footpad injection of lipopolysaccharide. The anti-inflammatory potential of AE, SE, and HPE in the regulation of nuclear factor kappa B (NF-κB), maleic dialdehyde (MDA), polymorphonuclear cells (PMN), interleukin-1β (IL-1β), inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) and tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), adhesion molecule (ICAM-1), and cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) was determined by ELISA and immunohistochemistry. HPE showed strong antibacterial activity at all tested concentrations (1.25, 2.5, and 5 μg/ml) to Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, and Shigella Castellani and Chalmers. HPE significantly inhibited EIU-induced upregulation of NF-κB activation and the production of IL-1β, TNF-α, iNOS, ICAM-1, and COX-2. Moreover, HPE suppressed MDA and infiltration of PMN. The study supports the hypothesis that the anti-pimple and anti-eczema activities of Dangguikushen compound recipe are attributed to herb pairs, A. sinensis and S. flavescens, used in combination. © 2011 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.

To explore the mechanism of action of Er'zhi Tiangui Granule (ETG) in improving quality of oocytes by observing metabonomics and level of calcium ion in follicle fluid, and to investigate the impacts of calcium ion, cholinesterase (ChE) and creatinine (CCr) levels in human follicle fluid on the quality of oocytes and outcome of pregnancy in patients after in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer (IVF-ET). Fifty-seven patients after IVF-ET were randomly assigned to two groups: the trial group (27 patients) and the control group (30 patients), both were treated with conventional Western medical treatment, but ETG and Liuwei Dihuang Granule (LDG) was given respectively to the two groups additionally. Changes of Shen-asthenia syndrome, amount of oocyte obtained, fertilization rate, cleavage rate, high-quality embryo rate and pregnancy rate, levels of calcium ion, ChE and Cr in follicle fluid, and metabonomics in the two groups were observed and compared. After treatment, scores of Shen-asthenia syndrome 8.30 +/- 1.46, fertilization rate 0.82 +/- 0.09, cleavage rate 0.97 +/- 0.07 and high-quality embryos rate 0.51 +/- 0.18 in the trial group were all better than those in the control group (9.16 +/- 1.15, 0.74 +/- 0.18, 0.91 +/- 0.10, 0.41 +/- 0.09, respectively, P<0.05); metabonomics principal component analysis showed that in the trial group, the principal component in follicle fluid distributed mainly in the section I, and that in the control group distributed mainly in the section II, showing significant difference between the two groups; while in most pregnant patients, it distributed in the section I. The Ca2+ concentration in the trial group was significantly higher than that in the control group (P<0.05). Levels of ChE and Cr in the trial group were higher than those in the control group, but the difference between them was insignificant. ETG is better than LDG in regulating metabonomics, Ca2+ concentration, improving the quality of oocyte and embryo, and increasing pregnant rate in patients after IVF-ET.

Genetics and molecular research : GMR | Year: 2012
This study was primarily undertaken to test the hypothesis that mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) mutations may be associated with aplastic anemia (AA). We analyzed mtDNA sequences from 15 patients with AA. The samples were obtained from bone marrow, and patients' oral epithelial cells were collected for normal tissue comparison. Total DNA was amplified by PCR after extraction, and these segments were then sent for sequencing. The results were compared with those of oral epithelial tissues as well as mtDNA sequences in the revised Cambridge Reference Sequence (rCRS) database. We detected 61 heteroplasmic mutations in 11 genes, including those encoding NADH dehydrogenase (ND)1-2 and 4-6, tRNA glutamic acid (TRNE), ribosomal RNA (RNR) 1 and 2, cytochrome c oxidase (COX1), cytochrome b (CYTB), and tRNA glycine (TRNG); mutation rates were particularly high in ND2 (34.4%) and ND4 (21.3%) in the patients' mtDNA genomes. The products of these genes are involved in oxidation in the respiratory chain, and a large number of homoplasmic mutations were found. Interestingly, these 162 polymorphisms were mostly in the D-loop DNA structure (54.3%), in which numerous mutations associated with leukemia and myelodysplastic syndromes are found. We conclude that functional impairment of the mitochondrial respiratory chain induced by mutation may be an important reason for hematopoietic failure in AA patients.
