1. Green tea supplementation ameliorates insulin resistance and increases glucose transporter IV content in a fructose-fed rat model.
Match Strength: 8.064

BACKGROUND: Sprague-Dawley rats fed a fructose-rich diet exhibit insulin resistance and hypertension, a pathologic status resembling human type II diabetes mellitus, and are an excellent laboratory animal model for research on insulin action and the development of hypertension. Since green tea has numerous beneficial effects, we tested its effect on fructose-fed rats. AIM: The present study was therefore designed to further evaluate the effects of green tea supplementation on insulin resistance, hypertension, and the glucose transporters I and IV contents in adipose tissue in the fructose-fed ... Read More »

4. Diverse contribution of bone marrow-derived cells to vascular remodeling associated with pulmonary arterial hypertension and arterial neointimal formation.
Match Strength: 7.148

BACKGROUND: Recent evidence suggests that bone marrow (BM)-derived cells may differentiate into vascular cells that participate in arterial repair and/or lesion formation. However, it remains uncertain whether BM-derived cells also can participate in vascular remodeling associated with pulmonary arterial hypertension. METHODS AND RESULTS: The BM of Sprague-Dawley rats was reconstituted with that of green fluorescent protein-transgenic rats. The BM-chimeric rats were injected intraperitoneally with 60 mg/kg monocrotaline after unilateral subpneumonectomy, and they concurrently underwent wire ... Read More »

We recently showed that diencephalic TRH may mediate central leptin-induced pressor effect. Here, to study the role of TRH in obesity-induced hypertension (OIH), we used a model of OIH produced by a high-fat diet (HFD, 45 days) in male Wistar rats. After 4 weeks, body weight and systolic arterial blood pressure (SABP) increased in HFD animals. Plasma leptin was correlated with peritoneal adipose tissue. Then, we treated OIH animals with an antisense oligodeoxynucleotide and small interfering RNA (siRNA) against the preproTRH. Antisense significantly decreased diencephalic TRH content and SABP ... Read More »

10. Preventive effects of green tea catechins on spontaneous stroke in rats.
Match Strength: 5.867

Background: Green tea catechins possess potent antioxidative properties and protect against various oxidative diseases. Malignant stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive rats (M-SHRSP) develop severe hypertension and spontaneous stroke at early ages. We previously reported that ingestion of green tea catechins prevents cerebral ischemic damage in a middle cerebral artery occlusion and reperfusion rat stroke model, in association with increased plasma epigallocatechin-gallate (EGCG) concentrations. In this study, we examined whether tea catechin intake decreases the incidence of spontaneous ... Read More »

13. A Functional Food Product For the Management of Weight
Match Strength: 5.624

More than half of Americans have a body mass index of 25 kg/m2 or more, which classifies them as overweight or obese. Overweight or obesity is strongly associated with comorbidities such as type 2 diabetes mellitus, hypertension, heart disease, gall bladder disease, and sleep apnea. Clearly, this is a national health concern, and although about 30 to 40% of the obese claim that they are trying to lose weight or maintain weight after weight loss, current therapies appear to have little effect. None of the current popular diets are working, and there is room for innovation. With the advancing ... Read More »

16. Gene Transfer of Neuronal Nitric Oxide Synthase into Intracardiac Ganglia Reverses Vagal Impairment in Hypertensive Rats.
Match Strength: 5.397

Hypertension is associated with reduced cardiac vagal activity and decreased atrial guanylate cyclase and cGMP levels. Neuronal production of NO facilitates cardiac parasympathetic transmission, although oxidative stress caused by hypertension may disrupt this pathway. We tested the hypothesis that peripheral vagal responsiveness is attenuated in the spontaneously hypertensive rat (SHR) because of impaired NO-cGMP signaling and that gene transfer of neuronal NO synthase (nNOS) into cholinergic intracardiac ganglia can restore neural function. Cardiac vagal heart rate responses in the isolated ... Read More »

Danshen, a Chinese herb, reduces hypertension in Oriental Medicine. We hypothesized that Danshen acts partially through endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) signaling mechanisms. We tested the hypothesis using tanshinone IIA, an active ingredient of Danshen, and the 2-kidney-1-clip renovascular (2K1C) hypertension model in hamsters. Oral tanshinone (50 microg/100g of body weight) reduced mean arterial pressure (MAP) from 161.2+/-6.9 to 130.0+/-7.8 mmHg (mean+/-SEM; p<0.05) in hypertensive hamsters.

21. Long-term inhibition of the central alpha(2B)-adrenergic receptor gene via recombinant AAV-delivered antisense in hypertensive rats.
Match Strength: 5.140

BACKGROUND: Salt-induced hypertension is mediated via the alpha(2B)-adrenergic receptor (AR) subtype. In alpha(2B)-AR gene knockout mice, blood pressure (BP) does not rise with salt loading, and in rats with salt-induced hypertension, BP decreases transiently with antisense (AS) treatment targeting the alpha(2B)-AR gene. The present experiments were designed to explore the possibility of gene transfection in the brain by intracerebroventricular (ICV) delivery of AS-DNA via adeno-associated virus (AAV) to prolong alpha(2B)-AR inhibition and hence reversal of salt-dependent hypertension.

Out-of-control reactive oxygen species (ROS) signaling is one of the key events in the pathogenesis of endothelial dysfunction and essential hypertension. We observed that tea polyphenols decreased the production of ROS via regulation of the protein expression of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADPH) oxidase in bovine carotid artery endothelial cells (BCAECs). Both green tea polyphenols (GTP) and black tea polyphenols (BTP) down-regulated the expression of NADPH oxidase subunits p22phox and p67phox while up-regulating catalase expression (p < 0.05, respectively).

27. Prolonged Q-T(c) interval in mild portal hypertensive cirrhosis.
Match Strength: 4.819

BACKGROUND/AIMS: The Q-T(c) interval is prolonged in a substantial fraction of patients with cirrhosis, thus indicating delayed repolarisation. However, no information is available in mild portal hypertensive patients. We therefore determined the Q-T(c) interval in cirrhotic patients with hepatic venous pressure gradient (HVPG) < 12 mmHg. METHODS: Forty-four patients with cirrhosis and HVPG < 12 mmHg underwent a haemodynamic study.

Match Strength: 4.674

Mutations in myocilin (MYOC) associate with glaucoma and ocular hypertension. Unfortunately, the specific role of MYOC, a widely expressed protein of unknown function, in ocular hypertension is unknown. Since MYOC localizes both to intracellular membranes and to the cytosol, we tested the hypothesis that MYOC is a cytosolic protein that associates with cellular membranes via its coiled-coil domain. Using green fluorescent protein (GFP) chimeras in expression and metabolic labeling studies, we observed that MYOC's putative signal peptide failed to traffic GFP into the secretory machinery and ... Read More »

Our previous studies demonstrated that peripheral overexpression of angiotensin II (ANG II) type 2 receptors (AT(2)R) prevents hypertension-induced cardiac hypertrophy and remodeling without altering high blood pressure. This, coupled with the observations that AT(2)R play a role in the antihypertensive actions of ANG II type 1 receptor (AT(1)R) blockers (ARBs), led us to propose that peripheral overexpression of AT(2)R would improve the antihypertensive action of losartan (Los) in Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats made hypertensive via chronic infusion of ANG II.

Hypertension may impact pelvic arterial blood flow resulting in reduction of nitric oxide synthase (NOS) levels. Although doxazosin, an alpha(1)-adrenoceptor antagonist, has been shown to improve erectile dysfunction as well as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and hypertension, it is not clear whether these improvements using doxazosin are primarily due to direct actions on the prostate, urinary bladder and penis, possibly via inhibition of vascular alpha(1)-adrenoceptors, or other sites of actions.

Magnesium intake was evaluated using a validated food frequency questionnaire every 2-4 years. After 18 years of follow-up in women and 12 years in men, we documented 4,085 and 1,333 incident cases of type 2 diabetes, respectively. RESULTS: After adjusting for age, BMI, physical activity, family history of diabetes, smoking, alcohol consumption, and history ... Read More »

40. Essential Fatty Acids In Health And Chronic Disease
Match Strength: 3.631

Human beings evolved consuming a diet that contained about equal amounts of n-3 and n-6 essential fatty acids. Over the past 100-150 y there has been an enormous increase in the consumption of n-6 fatty acids due to the increased intake of vegetable oils from corn, sunflower seeds, safflower seeds, cottonseed, and soybeans. Today, in Western diets, the ratio of n-6 to n-3 fatty acids ranges from approximately 20-30:1 instead of the traditional range of 1-2:1. Studies indicate that a high intake of n-6 fatty acids shifts the physiologic state to one that is prothrombotic and proaggregatory, ... Read More »

41. Genetic manipulation of intraspinal plasticity after spinal cord injury alters the severity of autonomic dysreflexia.
Match Strength: 3.630

Severe spinal cord injuries above mid-thoracic levels can lead to a potentially life-threatening hypertensive condition termed autonomic dysreflexia, which is often triggered by painful distension of pelvic viscera (bladder or bowel) and consequent sensory fiber activation, including nociceptive C-fibers. Interruption of tonically active medullo-spinal pathways after injury causes disinhibition of thoracolumbar sympathetic preganglionic neurons, and intraspinal sprouting of nerve growth factor (NGF)-responsive primary afferent fibers is thought to contribute to their hyperactivity. We ... Read More »

42. Polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy in exudative and haemorrhagic pigment epithelial detachments
Match Strength: 3.569

AIMS: To determine the prevalence of polypoidal choroidopathy in consecutive patients presenting with large haemorrhagic and exudative neurosensory retinal and retinal pigment epithelial detachments (PEDs) of over 2 mm in diameter in the absence of drusen. METHODS: 40 patients were identified over a 5 month period of which 29 had haemorrhagic detachments, and 11 had purely exudative detachments. All had indocyanine green (ICG) angiography, and the presence was sought of large blood vessels in the choroid associated with localised dilated terminals that filled slowly and leaked ICG. RESULTS: In ... Read More »

43. Lipid peroxidation, oxidative stress genes and dietary factors in breast cancer protection: a hypothesis.
Match Strength: 3.560

ABSTRACT: We have recently proposed that lipid peroxidation may be a common mechanistic pathway by which obesity and hypertension lead to increased renal cell cancer risk. During this exercise, we noted a risk factor swap between breast and kidney cancer (oophorectomy and increased parity, detrimental for kidney, beneficial for breast; high blood pressure, detrimental for kidney, beneficial for breast when it occurs during pregnancy; alcohol, beneficial for kidney, detrimental for breast, and so on). We have subsequently proposed the hypothesis that lipid peroxidation represents a protective ... Read More »

44. Multi-Targeted and Aggressive Treatment of Patients with Type 2 Diabetes At High Risk: What Are We Waiting For?
Match Strength: 3.485

Results from many single risk factor intervention trials and the multi-targeted Steno-2 trial in the last few years have provided a strong case that management of type 2 diabetes in all age groups requires a structured and intensified approach that is far more than just glucocentric, an approach addressing additional cardiovascular risk factors including hypertension, dyslipidaemia, sedentary behaviour, smoking and dietary habits causing insulin resistance and pro-inflammation. This type of integrated therapy applied for almost 8 years to high-risk type 2 diabetic patients has cut the relative ... Read More »

45. The joint effect of oxidative stress and antioxidants on the risk of an aneurysmal rupture subarachnoid hemorrhage: a case-control study in Japan.
Match Strength: 3.480

PURPOSE: A case-control study was conducted in Japan to examine the joint effects of oxidative stress and antioxidants on the risk of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). METHODS: The study included 201 consecutive patients with first spontaneous SAH aged 30 to 79 years who had aneurysm(s) confirmed by angiography and/or computed tomographic scan and were admitted to two medical hospitals in Nagoya, Japan, from April 1992 to March 1997. Community control subjects were identified and matched to each case by gender and age (+/-2 years). Conditional logistic regression modeling was used to compute odds ... Read More »

46. Neutral endopeptidase (EC in cirrhotic liver: a new target to treat portal hypertension?
Match Strength: 3.435

BACKGROUND/AIMS: In liver cirrhosis atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) decreases portal vascular resistance and tributary flow. The enzyme neutral endopeptidase (NEP) degrades ANP and bradykinin and generates endothelin-1 from big-endothelin. We determined the effects of NEP inhibition by candoxatrilat on hormonal status, liver function and arterial and portal pressures in rats with CCl4-induced cirrhosis. METHODS: Two groups of seven control rats received 1 ml 5% glucose solution alone or containing 10 mg/kg candoxatrilat; three groups of 10 ascitic cirrhotic rats received placebo, 5 or 10 mg ... Read More »

47. Effects of Silencing Leukocyte-Type 12/15-Lipoxygenase Using Short Interfering Rnas
Match Strength: 3.399

The leukocyte-type 12/15-lipoxygenase (12/15-LO) has been implicated in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis, hypertension, and diabetes. 12/15-LO and its products are associated with LDL oxidation, cellular growth, migration, adhesion, and inflammatory gene expression in monocytes/macrophages, endothelial cells, and vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs). Our objective, therefore, was to develop novel expression vectors for short interfering RNAs (siRNAs) targeting 12/15-LO to evaluate its functional relevance in macrophages and VSMCs. We used a PCR-based approach to rapidly identify effective ... Read More »

48. Cardiovascular pharmacotherapy and herbal medicines: the risk of drug interaction.
Match Strength: 3.366

Use of herbal medicines among patients under cardiovascular pharmacotherapy is widespread. In this paper, we have reviewed the literature to determine the possible interactions between herbal medicines and cardiovascular drugs. The Medline database was searched for clinical articles published between January 1996 and February 2003. Forty-three case reports and eight clinical trials were identified. Warfarin was the most common cardiovascular drug involved. It was found to interact with boldo, curbicin, fenugreek, garlic, danshen, devil's claw, don quai, ginkgo, papaya, lycium, mango, PC-SPES ... Read More »

49. Mechanism of nitric oxide action on inhibitory GABAergic signaling within the nucleus tractus solitarii.
Match Strength: 3.320

The cellular mechanisms mediating nitric oxide (NO) modulation of the inhibitory transmission in the nucleus tractus solitarii (NTS) remain unclear, even though this could be extremely important for various physiological and pathological processes. Specifically, in the NTS NO-evoked glutamate and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) release might contribute to pathological hypertension. In cultured rat brainstem slices, NTS GABAergic neurons were targeted using an adenoviral vector to express enhanced green fluorescent protein and studied with a combination of patch clamp and confocal microscopy. ... Read More »

PURPOSE: Long-term evaluation of dihematoporphyrin ether (DHE) safety and efficacy as photodynamic therapy (PDT) for patients with corneal neovascularization (KNV). DESIGN: Prospective multi-center interventional case series. METHODS: Seven patients were enrolled after Institutional Review Board approval and a detailed informed consent were obtained. Eligible patients presented with clinically stable KNV without active vessel progression or inflammation. All patients with severe hypertension, history of renal or hepatic disease, or sensitivity to porphyrins, and those with active keratitis or ... Read More »
