Cerebrovascular disease in medicine are "stroke" "Pianku" "hemiplegia" "Stroke" and other areas. The etiology was mainly due to old and feeble, Qi and Yin Deficiency, blood stasis due
to network resistance. This disease with Qi and Yin Deficiency-based, congestion resistance network for the standard, actual situation inclusions, qi deficiency blood stasis of disease throughout the entire process. Brain stem drank Prostisol, activating blood and network for the
treatment of Dharma, mainly for the treatment of Qi, or Qi and Yin Deficiency diseases among the wind.
Modern pharmacological studies have shown that : Astragalus enhanced cell vitality and resistance, to enhance
hypoxia tolerance in mice, as well as anti-oxidation, anti-
aging effect; habitat with a vasodilator to improve blood rheology, increase cerebral blood flow, clear oxygen free radicals, anti-oxidation effect; 37 with anti-platelet
aggregation, antithrombin and the promotion of fibrin
degradation and anti-thrombosis and anti-oxidation, anti-free
radical damage, promote the formation of collateral circulation infarct, microcirculation, membrane The role of the stability and other aspects.
Cerebrovascular disease is harmful to human health, one of the three diseases. The damage mechanisms, including oxidative stress, excitatory oxy acid toxicity, inflammation, calcium overload and apoptosis and so on. In which apoptosis is delayed cerebral ischemia and reperfusion key to nerve cell
Neuronal apoptosis involves the expression of a variety of factors out of control and regulation of anomalies in the nervous system, now known and apoptosis-related genes divided
into two basic categories: one category is the promotion of
apoptosis genes, such as bax, bcl xs, bad, bak, c fos, c
jun, p53 and so on, and the other is the inhibition of apoptosis genes, such as Bc1 2, Bcl XL, BCl W, mcl
1 . One proto-oncogene Bcl 2 inhibit apoptosis features,
is the first one has been identified as able to combat apoptosis gene, which specifically inhibit the cell apoptosis has attracted wide attention from scholars. Bcl 2
inhibition of apoptosis through a variety of mechanisms: (1) a variety of anti-lipid peroxidation; (2) inhibition of
mitochondrial release of pro-apoptotic protein; (3) antagonist pro-apoptotic genes; (4), inhibited the calcium overload; (5) inhibit the activation of cysteine protease-rich . The
experimental results showed that the brain stem drinking can
significantly increase Bcl 2 protein expression, the
treatment group at all time points Bc1 2 protein expression
were higher than model group, which, in the 12 h, Bc1 2
protein expression reached a peak. Description of Chinese
medicine to drink can improve the brain stem induced by ischemia-reperfusion in neurons of Bcl 2 protein content
was decreased, the promotion of neuronal Bcl 2 protein
expression, thereby protecting neurons played a role in reducing cerebral ischemia-reperfusion of brain tissue damage, the brain stem to drink increases Bcl 2 protein expression
in the mechanism has yet to be and further research.
The study found a large number of experimental focal cerebral ischemia in Bcl 2 protein expression can reduce
the infarct volume. Hata and other genes in the Bcl 2
protein In addition to the drum 1 h focal cerebral ischemia in rats found that absence of Bcl 2 protein does not affect
cerebral blood flow, but the infarct volume increased significantly. The experimental results showed that: the model group of brain infarct volume accounting for 36.1%, while the treatment group, only whole brain infarct volume 21.66% in treatment group compared with model group, infarct volume reduced by 40%, there are significant differences between the two groups (P < 0.05). This Pan Palace Shuqing  reported in the literature is consistent, and that structural damage in the brain tissue, the two groups there was a marked difference: Compared with model group, treatment group,
infarct edge of the organizational structure has not been completely destroyed, the number of nerve cells in the ischemic region a marked increase in pyknosis reduction in the bubble-like changes in neurons decreased significantly. Note to drink with a significantly reduced brain stem infarct size and reduce ischemia-reperfusion induced brain injury in the organizational structure. Its mechanism may have the following aspects: ? by increasing the expression of Bcl 2 reduced
infarct volume; ? inhibit Ca2 flow, reducing free radicals, reducing the death of nerve cells; ? increase in cerebral
blood flow in ischemic areas; ? anti-platelet aggregation and
In addition, the experimental results also found that the independent activities of treated rats compared with model group significantly speed up the recovery, and in the neurological function scores, the model group, apparent symptoms of neurological impairment, such as rats moved around to the paralyzed side, dumping can not even stand up or coma
and other symptoms. The treatment of mild symptoms of nerve injury, only lateral forelimb can not be fully extended, a small number of circular motion to the paralyzed side, no dumping, coma and other symptoms. That the brain stem drinking
can significantly improve the cerebral ischemia-reperfusion
induced symptoms of nerve injury, which is the side Prostisol, promoting blood circulation meridians of the effectiveness of closely related.
In short, through this experimental study, further
confirmed the protection of the brain stem to drink the role of cerebral ischemia-reperfusion injury, which can in many
ways, multi-angle, multi-target to play against ischemia-
reperfusion injury of brain cells, which expand the application for clinical provide a reliable theoretical and experimental basis.
