Sodium tanshinone IIA sulfonate (STS) is a water-soluble derivate of tanshinone IIA (Tan IIA) which is an active lipophilic constitute of Chinese Materia Medica Salvia miltiorrhiza Bge. (Danshen). STS presents multiple pharmacological activities, including anti-oxidant, anti-inflammation and anti-apoptosis, and has been approved for treatment of cardiovascular diseases by China State Food and Drug Administration (CFDA). In this review, we comprehensively summarized the pharmacological activities and pharmacokinetics of STS, which could support the further application and development of STS. In the recent decades, numerous experimental and clinical studies have been conducted to investigate the potential treatment effects of STS in various diseases, such as heart diseases, brain diseases, pulmonary diseases, cancers, sepsis and so on. The underlying mechanisms were most related to anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory effects of STS via regulating various transcription factors, such as NF-κB, Nrf2, Stat1/3, Smad2/3, Hif-1α and β-catenin. Iron channels, including Ca2+, K+ and Cl- channels, were also the important targets of STS. Additionally, we emphasized the differences between STS and Tan IIA despite the interchangeable use of Tan IIA and STS in many previous studies. It is promising to improve the efficacy and reduce side effects of chemotherapeutic drug by the combination use of STS in canner treatment. The application of STS in pregnancy needs to be seriously considered. Moreover, the drug-drug interactions between STS and other drugs needs to be further studied as well as the complications of STS.

Our study aimed to determine the effects of sodium tanshinone IIA sulfonate (STS) on proliferation, migration, invasion, and inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis human fibroblast-like synoviocytes (RA-HFLSs). Firstly, results demonstrated STS reduced proliferation, migration, invasion in HFLSs. Also, we found that STS could alleviate the reorganizations of F-actin cytoskeleton in TNF-α-treated HFLSs. In addition, STS decreased the production of IL-1β, IL-6, MMP-1, and MMP-3 in TNF-α-treated RA-HFLSs. Further study showed that STS blocked MAPK/NF-κB activations in TNF-α-stimulated RA-HFLSs. Moreover, we illustrated that STS could alleviate rheumatoid arthritis progression and prevent inflammation damage in joint tissues of collagen-induced arthritis (CIA) mice. Taken together, this study suggested that STS inhibited proliferation, migration, invasion, and inflammation of RA-HFLSs by blocking MAPK/NF-κB pathways.

Tanshinone ⅡA Sodium Sulfonate (DS-201), a derivative of traditional Chinese medicinal herb Danshen, has been clinically used for various cardiovascular diseases. Previous studies showed that DS-201 induced vascular relaxation partly due to the activation of the large conductance Ca2+-activated potassium (BKCa) channels. However, the efficacy of DS-201 on the resistant vessels in hypertension remains unknown. Mesentery arteries obtained from spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) and hypertension patients were used in this study. The endothelium-denuded mesenteric arteries were prepared to measure the artery tension and evaluate the vasodilatory effect of DS-201. The results showed that DS-201 had a vasodilatory effect on the mesenteric artery rings pre-contracted with either phenylephrine (PE) or thromboxane mimetic U46619 in a concentration-dependent manner. However, the vasodilatory effect of DS-201 significantly decreased in hypertension than in control arteries due to a decrease in protein level of BKCa β1subunit. A BKCa channel blocker IbTX (200 nM) significantly inhibited the relaxant effect of DS-201 on non-hypertensive arteries, whereas the BKCa channel specific agonist NS1619 rescued the vasodilating effects of DS-201 on hypertensive vessels. These results indicate that the vasodilating effect of DS-201 is BKCa-dependent. This study demonstrated that DS-201 alone may not be effective for treating hypertension, but it may be considered as therapy combined with BKCa-agonists or methods rescuing BKCa functions.
