Abstract:

OBJECTIVE: To study the effect of paeonol on protecting endothelial cells of diabetic rats.

METHODS: Streptozocin was used on rats to make diabetic models. Different dosages of paeonol were fed on all the model rats. PGI, TXA2, ET, CRP, ICAM-1, VCAM-1 and NO were tested after 30 day's therapy.

RESULTS: Compared with control group PGI increased from 89.75 +/- 2.75, 89.97 +/- 7.28, 89.97 +/- 11.36 to 120.03 +/- 13.85, 108.34 +/- 11.25, 105.32 +/- 8.85, respectively. TXA2 decreased from 157.64 +/- 10.36, 156.64 +/- 11.35, 153.33 +/- 19.40 to 124.46 +/- 18.67, 136.40 +/- 18.15, 138.40 +/- 22.20, respectively. ET decreased from 181.68 +/- 5.10, 181.27 +/- 4.76, 181.04 +/- 4.19 to 140.55 +/- 3.01, 150.51 +/- 2.22, 161.02 +/- 3.76, respectively. CRP decreased from 41.63 +/- 7.37, 44.83 +/- 7.80, 42.06 +/- 7.21 to 28.62 +/- 5.45, 30.00 +/- 10.73, 37.09 +/- 4.94, respectively. ICAM-1 decreased from 225.77 +/- 11.96, 222.78 +/- 14.46, 225.17 +/- 10.03 to 190.93 +/- 12.67, 197.42 +/- 14.56, 200.64 +/- 15.36, respectively. VCAM-1 decreased from 566.72 +/- 24.46, 560.61 +/- 25.67, 359.61 +/- 42.75 to 506.26 +/- 37.26, 516.83 +/- 28.17, 527.02 +/- 43.47, respectively. NO had no change.

CONCLUSIONS: Paeonol can protect the endothelial cells of diabetic rats.
