[Study on Material Base of Panax ginseng for Treating Brain Ischemia Based on Molecular Docking].

Zhong Yao Cai 2016 06;39(6):1377-83

Objective: On the basis of molecular docking,to study the mechanism of Panax ginseng in the treatment of ischemic stroke.

Methods: The small molecules of Panax ginseng based on molecular docking technology docked with 20 key targets protein of cerebral ischemia, and multi-component protein target network was established by Cytoscape 3. 1. 1 software. At the same time,the two active molecules of the Panax ginseng of Rb2 and 20( R)-ginsenoside Rg2 were also analyzed by VEGF and Caspase-3,which were the key protein in brain ischemia.

Results: There were 31 active molecules of Panax ginseng combined strongly with five or more than five protein targets after molecular docking, and only four active molecules of Panax ginseng combined strongly with ten or more than ten protein targets. The two active molecules of Rb2 and 20( R)-ginsenoside Rg2 in the Panax ginseng had a very strong combination with VEGF and Caspase-3,respectively,and the docking scores were more than 7. 0.

Conclusion: Molecular docking technology screening active substances of Panax ginseng plays a practical significance in the treatment of ischemic stroke, which offers the foundation to study the chemical constituents of composite prescription.

[Clinical comparative study on the influence of acupoint sticking therapy in dog days and in non-dog days to the quality of life of allergic rhinitis patients].

Zhongguo Zhen Jiu 2012 Jan;32(1):31-4

School of TCM, Southern Medical University, Guangzhou 510515, Guangdong Province, China.

Objective: To observe and compare the influence of acupoint sticking therapy in dog days and in non-dog days to the quality of life of allergic rhinitis patients.

Methods: Fifty-five cases were divided into group A (the acupoint sticking therapy in dog days group, 28 cases) and group B (the acupoint sticking therapy in non-dog day group, 27 cases) randomly. The acupoint sticking therapy description (Dazhui (GV 14), Fengmen (BL 12), Feishu (BL 13) etc. was used in both groups. Five times of acupoint sticking therapy were given to patients in group A during dog days in 2010, while another 5 times of acupoint sticking therapy were given to patients in group B before the dog days. The Rhinoconjunctivitis Quality of Life Questionnaire (RQLQ) was used to evaluate the effects before, after and half a year after treatment.

Results: The scores of behavior problems, nasal symptoms and quality of life in RQLQ of both groups all decreased after treatment (all P < 0.01). The score of emotion reaction of group A in the follow-up period decreased compared with that before treatment (P < 0.05). The scores of non-nasal-or-ocular symptoms, ocular symptoms and emotion reaction after treatment and in the follow-up period all decreased than those before treatment (P < 0.01, P < 0.05). The decreasing degrees of scores of non-nasal-or-ocular symptoms, ocular symptoms, emotion reaction and quality of life after treatment and in the follow-up period in group A were all greater than those in group B (P < 0.01, P < 0.05).

Conclusion: In the same season, both acupoint sticking therapy in dog days and in non-dog dags can improve the symptoms of allergic rhinitis, but the improving degree to quality of life in the method of acupoint sticking in dog days is greater.
