ARTICLE INFO Keywords: Cryptotanshinone Salvia miltiorrhiza Absorption P-glycoprotein inhibitor Interaction HPLC Everted rat gut sacs ABSTRACT Ciyptotanshinone, derived from the roots of Salvia miltiorrhiza Bge and Salvia przewalskii Maxim, is the major active component and possesses significant antibacterial, antidermatophytic, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anticancer activities.
The experimental treatment method allows small therapeutic agents to safely cross the blood-brain barrier in laboratory rats by turning off P-glycoprotein, one of the main gatekeepers preventing medicinal drugs from reaching their intended targets in the brain.
At the end of 12 weeks, the researchers killed half of the animals in order to measure intestinal expression of the membrane efflux transporter P-glycoprotein (PGP), and of the cytochrome P-450 (CYP) metabolism system.
Interestingly, the loss of p-glycoprotein in the knockout mouse resulted in serious Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) IBD is thought to be due to a dysregulated immune response to the toxis produced by the microbiota of the gastrointestinal tract; Past studies have ruled out CD8(+) T cells as the cause of IBD and it is theorized that another subset of T cells, CD4(+) T cells, is responsible for this disease.
0-[infinity]] was obtained due to the interaction between the orange juice and levofloxacin at the intestinal transport system, and it may involve identified mechanisms such as P-glycoprotein or organic anion-transporting polypeptides (OATP) in the gastrointestinal tract in combination with some mild chelation interaction.
