Effect of polysaccharides from a Korean ginseng berry on the immunosenescence of aged mice

Korean ginseng has been widely evaluated to treat human diseases; however, most studies on Korean ginseng have focused on its root. In this study, polysaccharides [acidic-polysaccharide-linked glycopeptide (APGP) extracted with 90% ethanol and hot water] were prepared from Korean ginseng berries, and their effect on immunosenescence was explored.

Korean Red Ginseng extract and ginsenoside Rg3 have anti-pruritic effects on chloroquine-induced itch by inhibition of -mediated pathway

It was previously found that Korean Red Ginseng water extract (KRGE) inhibits histamine-induced itch signaling pathway in peripheral sensory neurons. Thus, in the present study, it was investigated whether KRGE may inhibit another distinctive itch pathway induced by chloroquine (CQ), a representative histamine-independent pathway mediated by MrgrpA3 and TRPA1.

Ginsenoside Rh2 epigenetically regulates cell-mediated immune pathway to inhibit proliferation of MCF-7 breast cancer cells

Ginsenoside Rh2 has been known to enhance the activity of immune cells as well as to inhibit the growth of tumor cells. Although the repertoire of genes regulated by Rh2 is well-known in many cancer cells, the epigenetic regulation has yet to be determined, especially for comprehensive approaches to detect methylation changes.

GBCK25, fermented ginseng, attenuates cardiac dysfunction in high fat diet-induced obese mice

The fermentation of medicinal herbs facilitated by microbes is assumed to exert promising therapeutic efficacy on the absorption, bioavailability, and pharmacological effects by speed up the making or conversion of active constituents into their metabolites. We examined the cardioprotective potential of fermented ginseng, GBCK25, against high-fat diet (HFD)-induced metabolic and functional illnesses as following the essential analysis such as electrocardiographic parameters, alterations of body and organ weights, echocardiographic studies.
