Fermented ginseng, GBCK25, ameliorates hemodynamic function on experimentally induced myocardial injury

In the present study, we investigated whether treatment with GBCK25 facilitated the recovery of hemodynamic parameters, left ventricle systolic pressure, left ventricular developed pressure, and electrocardiographic changes. GBCK25 significantly prevented the decrease in hemodynamic parameters and ameliorated the electrocardiographic abnormality. These results indicate that GBCK25 has distinct cardioprotective effects in rat heart.

Induction of Nrf2/ARE-mediated cytoprotective genes by red ginseng oil through ASK1-MKK4/7-JNK and p38 MAPK signaling pathways in HepG2 cells

The induction of cellular defensive genes such as phase II detoxifying and antioxidant enzymes is highly effective strategy for protection against carcinogenesis as well as slowing cancer development. Transcription factor Nrf2 is responsible for the activation of phase II enzymes induced by natural chemopreventive compounds.

Endophytic fungi harbored in : diversity and potential as biological control agents against host plant pathogens of root-rot disease

Endophytic fungi play a very important role in balancing the ecosystem and boosting the growth of host. In the present study, we investigated the endophytic fungal diversity of healthy Panax notoginseng and evaluated their potential antimicrobial activity against five major phytopathogens causing root-rot of P. notoginseng.

Ginseng essence, a medicinal and edible herbal formulation, ameliorates carbon tetrachloride-induced oxidative stress and liver injury in rats

Ginseng essence (GE) is a formulation comprising four medicinal and edible herbs including ginseng (Panax ginseng), American ginseng (Panax quinquefolius), lotus seed (Nelumbo nucifera), and lily bulb (Lilium longiflorum). This study was aimed at investigating the hepatoprotective effect of GE against carbon tetrachloride (CCl4)-induced liver injury in rats.
