Natural product therapy for pulmonary arterial hypertension: Oleanolic acid, isolated from Olive oil, and Jawa apple, among others, inhibits the development of pulmonary arterial hypertension via down regulation of its target gene Notch3, 28/September/2017, 5. 06 am

Natural product-based therapy for TIIDM and obesity-associated metabolic deficits: Teasaponin, isolated from camellia sinesis, increases Lipocalin 2 (LCN2) expression, activates an MC4R-dependent anorexigenic pathway, suppresses appetite and weight gain, increases insulin secretion, improves glucose tolerance, promotes glucose homeostasis, improves obesity-associated metabolic deficits and prevents progression to TIIDM via down regulation of its target gene, 27/September/2017, 1.24 am

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: Oleanolic acid, isolated from Olive oil, and Jawa apple, among others, inhibits the development of pulmonary arterial hypertension via down regulation of its target gene Notch3


Significance of the study:  

Oleanolic acid, by increasing the expression of its target gene, it may decrease the expression of Notch3 and its target gene Hes-5 (Fig.1). 

Figure 1. Mechanistic insights into how Oleanolic acid inhibits the development of pulmonary hypertension. Oleanolic acid, by inhibiting Notch-3 and its target gene Hes-5, functions as an anti-hypertensive agent.

Thus, pharmacological formulations encompassing “Oleanolic acid  or its analogues, either alone or in combination with other drugs, may be used to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension.
