Decoction is one of the oldest forms of traditional Chinese medicine and it is widely used in clinical practice. However, the quality evaluation and control of traditional decoction is a challenge due to the characteristics of complicated constituents, water as solvent, and temporary preparation. ShenFu Prescription Decoction (SFPD) is a classical prescription for preventing and treating many types of cardiovascular disease. In this article, a comprehensive and rapid method for quality evaluation and control of SFPD was developed, via qualitative and quantitative analysis of the major components by integrating ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography equipped with quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometry and ultra-fast-performance liquid chromatography equipped with triple quadrupole mass spectrometry...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: The aim of present study was to assess the protective effects of Shenfu injection (SI) on the intestinal mucosa and its regulation on the mucosal immune responses in rats with sepsis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into the sham, model, low-dose SI (LSF), and high-dose SI (HSF) groups. Sham animals underwent laparotomy only, whereas sepsis was modeled by cecal ligation and puncture in the remaining groups. At 2 h post-surgery, the LSF and HSF groups were intraperitoneally administered 5 and 20 mL/kg SI, respectively, whereas other animals with saline...

BACKGROUND: Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is one of the most common critical illnesses encountered in clinical practice. Shenfu injection (SFI) has received extensive attention as an alternative therapy that can effectively maintain the autonomic circulation function after cardiopulmonary resuscitation. However, the mechanism of SFI is not yet fully understood. In addition, there has been no systematic review or meta-analysis of SFI in the treatment of patients with return of spontaneous circulation after SCA...

Acute viral myocarditis (AVMC) is typically caused by cardiotropic viral infection. There is a paucity of specific treatment options available with proven efficacy. Chinese patented pharmaceutical product Shenfu injection (SFI) has potent efficacy on treating AVMC in clinical practice. However, the molecular mechanism is still unknown. We employed cross-platform metabolomics combined with computational systems analysis, based on reversed-phase liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (RPLC-MS), hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (HILIC-MS) and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS), to deciphering the targeted metabolic pathways of SFI against AVMC induced by coxsackievirus B3 (CVB3)...

Postoperative cognitive dysfunction (POCD) is one of the major complications in patients who have undergone surgeries. Reduction of surgery-induced inflammation and perioperative stress responses may prevent the development of POCD. As recent experimental data have suggested, Shenmai and Shenfu injections, two ginseng containing formulations, may improve cognition. We designed this study using aged rats as an experimental model to determine the effect of combined perioperative Shenmai injection and Shenfu injection in preventing the development of POCD and exploring the underlying mechanism of this intervention...

The aim of the present study was to investigate the protective effects of Shenfu injection (SFI) against myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury (MIRI) in model rats and to explore its mechanism of action. Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats were pretreated with SFI and NG -nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME) via tail vein injection and then rats were subjected to ischemia by occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery for 30 min followed by reperfusion for 120 min. Left ventricular function was evaluated by echocardiography...

Following the publication of this article, we realize that the title appeared incorrectly: This appeared in print as "Long non‑coding RNA H1 promotes cell proliferation and invasion by acting as a ceRNA of miR‑138 and releasing EZH2 in oral squamous cell carcinoma", and the corrected title is now featured above ("H1" should have read as "H19"). Note that this error did not have any bearing on the results reported in the paper, or on the conclusions therein. We regret any inconvenience that this mistake has caused...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effects and the underlying mechanisms of ShenFu Injection on paclitaxel-induced peripheral neuropathy. METHODS: Twenty-eight adult male Wister rats were randomized into 4 groups ( n =7) : control group, paclitaxel group, paclitaxel combined with low or high dose of ShenFu Injection groups. Rats were intraperitoneally injected with paclitaxel 8 mg/kg every 4 d for a total of 4 doses except control group. From Day 1 of the experiment (injection),low dose (4 mL/kg) and high dose (8 mL/kg) of Shenfu Injection were intraperitoneally injected daily in the combination groups for a total of 21 d respectively,while normal saline (NS) was injected in control group in the same way instead...

Shenfu Injection (SFI) is a classical Chinese medicine used to treat heart failure. Our previous study demonstrated that miRNAs underwent changes in rats with myocardial hypertrophy induced by abdominal aortic constriction. Interestingly, there was a significant change in miR-19a-3p, whose target gene is known to be associated with MEF2 signaling. However, whether and how SFI regulates miR-19a-3p in the treatment of myocardial hypertrophy has not been investigated. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the regulatory effect of SFI on miR-19a-3p in MEF2 signaling in the rat hypertrophic myocardium...

Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been shown to play pivotal roles in various types of human cancer, including oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). However, the potential mechanisms of action of lncRNAs in OSCC remain to be fully elucidated. The aim of the present study was to further explore the potential mechanisms of action of lncRNAs in OSCC. We first analyzed Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) datasets to investigate aberrantly expressed lncRNAs which may be involved in the development of OSCC. Reverse transcription‑quantitative PCR (RT‑qPCR) was performed to analyze the expression levels of lncRNA H19...

Platinum-based chemotherapy is one of the standard treatments for non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), while its high toxicity and limited clinical effects raise big concerns. Shenfu injection (SFI) has been commonly used as an adjutant chemotherapy drug for NSCLC in China. We ascertained the beneficial and adverse effects of SFI in combination with platinum-based chemotherapy for advanced NSCLC by using meta-analysis methods. The randomized controlled trials (RCTs) involving advanced NSCLC treatment with SFI plus platinum-based chemotherapy versus chemotherapy alone were searched on 6 medical databases up to February 2017...

The aim of the present study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the Shenfu injection (SFI) in the prevention of contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI) in acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). A single-center prospective and randomized controlled trial was performed and 148 ACS patients undergoing PCI were divided randomly into control (n=74; receiving only 0.9% sodium chloride solution for routine hydration) and intervention (n=74; based upon routine hydration and receiving SFI) groups...
