The fibroblast-like synoviocytes (FLSs) has the aggressive phenotype, which is very important for cartilage destruction in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). To the pathology of RA, the increased FLSs migration, activation and proliferation are essential factors. Oxymatrine is a traditional Chinese herb, which is the extraction from the root of Sophora flavescens and regarded as quinolizidine alkaloid compounds and has been shown to inhibit inflammation, proliferation and migration in vitro or vivo. However, whether oxymatrine effects in the treatment of RA FLSs is undefined. In our study, the inhibition of oxymatrine in RA FLSs inflammation, proliferation and migration in RA FLS are evaluated. We found that oxymatrine decreased the IL-6 and IL-8 expression and the proliferation, migration and invasion of RA FLSs. We also evaluated the molecular mechanisms and we found the effect of oxymatrine on NF-κB activation. The results showed that oxymatrine inhibited the activity of NF-κB. And the treatment activity of oxymatrine on collagen-induced arthritis (CIA) was further explored by us. Thus, we conclude that oxymatrine may protect joint destruction of RA by inhibiting synoviocyte activation, migration, invasion, and proliferation.

Previous studies have demonstrated that oxymatrine may inhibit ventricular remodeling and serves an important role in the treatment of cardiovascular disease. The present study investigated whether oxymatrine treatment protects against the effects of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) via regulation of the transforming growth factor‑β1 (TGF‑β1)/mothers against decapentaplegic (Smad) signaling pathway. A CPR model was established in Sprague‑Dawley (SD) rats by asphyxiation, and rats were subsequently anaesthetized by intraperitoneal injection of chloral hydrate. SD rats were then administered 25 or 50 mg/kg oxymatrine once a day for 4 weeks. Oxymatrine treatment significantly improved troponin I levels, the ejection fraction, hydroxyproline content and the myocardial performance index in model rats. However, treatment with oxymatrine significantly reduced arterial oxygen tension, arterial lactate levels and oxygen extraction. Treatment with oxymatrine following CPR significantly inhibited the protein expression levels of TGF‑β1, TGF‑β1 receptor type 1 and Smad homolog 3 (Smad3) in model rats. The results of this research indicated that oxymatrine treatment may protect against the effects of CPR via regulation of the TGF‑β1/Smad3 signaling pathway and may be a novel drug for CPR in a clinical setting.

Background/aims: Doxorubicin-induced cardiac toxicity has been a major concern of oncologists and is considered the main restriction on its clinical application. Oxymatrine has shown potent anti-cancer, anti-fibrosis, and anti-oxidative effects. Recently, it has been reported that oxymatrine is protective against some cardiovascular diseases. In this study, we aimed to investigate the effects of oxymatrine on doxorubicin-induced cardiotoxicity in rat hearts and H9c2 cells.
Methods: Creatine Kinase – MB (CK-MB) and Lactate Dehydrogenase (LDH) levels were determined using commercial kits. Biochemical indices reflecting oxidative stress, such as catalase (CAT), malonyldialdehyde (MDA), superoxide dismutase (SOD), and glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px) were also analyzed with commercial kits. Mitochondrial reactive oxygen species (ROS) 2′,7′-dichlorofluorescin diacetate (DCFH-DA) was measured by fluorescence microscopy. Histological analyses were conducted to observe morphological changes, and apoptosis was measured using a commercial kit. Western blots were used to detect the level of expression of cleaved caspase-3.
Results: Doxorubicin treatment significantly increased oxidative stress levels, as indicated by catalase, malonyldialdehyde, superoxide dismutase, glutathione peroxidase and reactive oxygen species. Doxorubicin also increased pathological damage in myocardial tissue, myocardial ROS levels, and malonyldialdehyde levels, and induced apoptosis in myocardial tissues and H9c2 cells. All of these doxorubicin-induced effects were attenuated by oxymatrine.
Conclusion: These in vitro and in vivo findings indicate that oxymatrine may be a promising cardioprotective agent against doxorubicin-induced cardiotoxicity, at least in part mediated through oxymatrine’s inhibition of cardiac apoptosis and oxidative stress.
