How to use

In Vitro:

Sodium houttuyfonate (25-100 mM) decreases apoptosis of MLE-15 cells induced by CS experiment and inhibits JNK pathway.

In Vivo:

Sodium Houttuyfonate (10-40 mg/kg; p.o. for 28 d) reduces lung injury, apoptosis in lung tissues, and the wet/dry (W/D) ratio in ventilator-induced lung injury (VILI) mice. Sodium Houttuyfonate (40 mg/kg; p.o. for 28 d) reduces ROS level and inhibits JNK pathway in VILI mice. Sodium Houttuyfonate (25-100 mg/kg; p.o. once daily for 28 d) ameliorates spatial learning and memory deficiency in Aβ1-42-induced Alzheimer's disease mice.
