Source Instituto de Biología Molecular y Celular (IBMC), Universidad Miguel Hernández, Elche, Alicante, Spain. Abstract Dietary polyphenols may exert their pharmacological effect via synergistic interactions with multiple targets. Putative effects of polyphenols in the management of obesity should be primarily evaluated in adipose tissue and consequently in well-documented cell model. We used Hibiscus sabdariffa (HS), a widely recognised medicinal plant, as a source of polyphenols with a number of salutary effects previously reported. We present here the full characterisation of bioactive components of HS aqueous extracts and document their effects in a model of adipogenesis […]

Abstract

BACKGROUND:
There is considerable interest in the research of molecules modulating the acute inflammatory response in patients with sepsis. Paraoxonases (PON) are antioxidant and anti-inflammatory enzymes that inhibit the production of the monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1). This preliminary study investigated changes in PON status and MCP-1 concentrations in critically ill patients with severe sepsis treated in an ICU and their relationship with the evolution of disease.
METHODS:
This was a longitudinal, prospective and observational study on 15 patients with sepsis, studied at baseline and on days 1, 2, 5, 7 and 10 of their stay in the ICU. In all the patients we measured serum PON1 and PON3 concentrations, PON1 paraoxonase […]

Abstract The epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) genetic program is a molecular convergence point in the life-threatening progression of organ fibrosis and cancer toward organ failure and metastasis, respectively. Here, we employed the EMT process as a functional screen for testing crude natural extracts for accelerated drug development in fibrosis and cancer.

Source Centre de Recerca Biomèdica, Hospital Universitari de Sant Joan, Institut d’Investigació Sanitària Pere Virgili, Universitat Rovira i Virgili, C. Sant Joan s/n, 43201 Reus, Catalonia, Spain. Abstract OBJECTIVE: There are no data on the relationship between serum paraoxonase-3 (PON3) concentration and atherosclerosis in humans. Our aim was to investigate possible associations, using recently developed methods, in patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD) or coronary artery disease(CAD). METHODS: We studied 118 PAD and 72 CAD patients and 175 healthy volunteers. Serum PON3 was determined by in-house ELISA using polyclonal antibodies […]
