What they say:
A study from the University of California, La Jolla, California, USA shows that “Notch3 signaling promotes the development of pulmonary arterial hypertension.” This study was published in the 15 November 2009 issue of the journal “Nature Medicine”[the number 1 journal in General Medicine with an I.F of 28.054] by Prof. Thistlethwaite PA, Li X and others.
What we say:
On the foundation of this interesting finding, Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that: Natural product therapy for pulmonary arterial hypertension: Shikonin, found in Zicao (also known as purple gromwell), inhibits the development of pulmonary arterial hypertension via down regulation of its target gene Notch3
Significance of the study:
Shikonin, by increasing the expression of its target gene, it may decrease the expression of Notch3 (Figs.1-2).
Thus, pharmacological formulations encompassing “Shikonin or its analog or Shikonin in combination with other drugs” may be used to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension.
