Summary of "Dihydroartemisinin alleviates oxidative stress in bleomycin-induced pulmonary fibrosis."

Dihydroartemisinin has been shown to inhibit the development of pulmonary fibrosis in rats, but its mechanism has yet to be elucidated. This study aimed to determine the mechanisms of dihydroartemisinin in bleomycin-induced pulmonary fibrosis in a rat model.

Inhibition of mTOR ameliorated bleomycin-induced pulmonary fibrosis by regulating epithelial-mesenchymal transition.

Epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) plays a pivotal role in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). In bleomycin-induced pulmonary fibrosis mice, we observed that inhibition of mTOR (mammalia target ...

Submicron emulsion of cinnamaldehyde ameliorates bleomycin-induced idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis via inhibition of inflammation, oxidative stress and epithelial-mesenchymal transition.

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is the most frequent and severe form of idiopathic interstitial pneumonias. The pathogenesis is associated with inflammation and oxidative stress and epithelial-mes...

Salvianolic acid B attenuates experimental pulmonary inflammation by protecting endothelial cells against oxidative stress injury.

Endothelial cell injury and subsequent inflammation play pivotal roles in the pathogenesis of pulmonary fibrosis, a progressive and fatal disorder. We found previously that salvianolic acid B (SAB) at...

Cangrelor alleviates pulmonary fibrosis by inhibiting GPR17-mediated inflammation in mice.

Pulmonary fibrosis is a progressive and intractable lung disease. Macrophages play a critical role in the progression of pulmonary fibrosis. Cangrelor, an anti-platelet agent, is also a non-selective ...

Deficiency of Sphingosine-1-Phosphate Receptor 2 (S1P) Attenuates Bleomycin-Induced Pulmonary Fibrosis.

Sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P) levels are often found to be elevated in serum, bronchoalveolar lavage, and lung tissue of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis patients and experimental mouse models. Although ...

Inspired Oxygen on Oxidative Stress and Breath Volatile Organic Compound Composition in Healthy Volunteers

High inspiratory oxygen fractions are known to induce oxidative stress and lipid peroxidation. The degrading products of oxidative stress induced lipid peroxidation are in part volatile an...

Study of the Ability of Clarithromycin to Induce Oxidative Stress

The purpose of the study is to examine whether Klacid® (Clarithromycin) will induce oxidative stress (stress from oxygen) in healthy subjects. This is done by measuring the content of a p...

Study on Phenotypic Characterization of Combined Pulmonary Fibrosis and Emphysema

This study is to evaluate the expression of biological markers in induced sputum and peripheral blood T lymphocytes of patients with combined pulmonary fibrosis and emphysema (CPFE). The f...

Carbon Monoxide and Oxidative Stress in Waterpipe Smokers

Waterpipe is a tool for smoking tobacco, which is thought to be less harmful than cigarette. Unfortunately, there aren't adequate studies about its harms to health that are threatening the...

Normal Values of Oxidative Stress, Taurine, and Related Markers

The role of oxidative stress in disease pathology is increasingly recognized. At present, the development of biomarkers of this state is in its infancy and the availability of clinically v...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A disturbance in the prooxidant-antioxidant balance in favor of the former, leading to potential damage. Indicators of oxidative stress include damaged DNA bases, protein oxidation products, and lipid peroxidation products (Sies, Oxidative Stress, 1991, pxv-xvi).

A complex of related glycopeptide antibiotics from Streptomyces verticillus consisting of bleomycin A2 and B2. It inhibits DNA metabolism and is used as an antineoplastic, especially for solid tumors.

A naturally occurring phenolic acid which is a carcinogenic inhibitor. It has also been shown to prevent paraquat-induced oxidative stress in rats. (From J Chromatogr A 1996;741(2):223-31; Biosci Biotechnol Biochem 1996;60(5):765-68).

Process by which cells irreversibly stop dividing and enter a state of permanent growth arrest without undergoing CELL DEATH. Senescence can be induced by DNA DAMAGE or other cellular stresses, such as OXIDATIVE STRESS.

The appearance of carbonyl groups (such as aldehyde or ketone groups) in PROTEINS as the result of several oxidative modification reactions. It is a standard marker for OXIDATIVE STRESS. Carbonylated proteins tend to be more hydrophobic and resistant to proteolysis.
