Hyperglycemia-induced oxidative stress and fibrosis play a crucial role in the development of diabetic cardiomyopathy (DCM). Tetrahydrocurcumin (THC), a major bioactive metabolite of natural antioxidant curcumin, is reported to exert even more effective antioxidative and superior antifibrotic properties as well as anti-inflammatory and antidiabetic abilities. This study was designed to investigate the potential protective effects of THC on experimental DCM and its underlying mechanisms, pointing to the role of high glucose-induced oxidative stress and interrelated fibrosis. In STZ-induced diabetic mice, oral administration of THC (120 mg/kg/d) for 12 weeks significantly improved the cardiac function and ameliorated myocardial fibrosis and cardiac hypertrophy, accompanied by reduced reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation. Mechanically, THC administration remarkably increased the expression of the SIRT1 signaling pathway both in vitro and in vivo, further evidenced by decreased downstream molecule Ac-SOD2 and enhanced deacetylated production SOD2, which finally strengthened antioxidative stress capacity proven by repaired activities of SOD and GSH-Px and reduced MDA production. Additionally, THC treatment accomplished its antifibrotic effect by depressing the ROS-induced TGFβ1/Smad3 signaling pathway followed by reduced expression of cardiac fibrotic markers α-SMA, collagen I, and collagen III. Collectively, these finds demonstrated the therapeutic potential of THC treatment to alleviate DCM mainly by attenuating hyperglycemia-induced oxidative stress and fibrosis via activating the SIRT1 pathway.

Curcumin (CUR) is a bioactive compound present in many composite prescriptions of traditional Chinese medicine together with quercetin (QR) and paeoniflorin (PF). Little is known about the influence of QR and PF on the absorption and metabolism of CUR when the three compounds are orally co-administered. In this study, a rapid, sensitive, and reliable ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (UHPLC-MS/MS) method was developed and validated for the simultaneous determination of CUR, tetrahydrocurcumin (THC), QR, and PF in rat plasma by using tinidazole as the internal standard (IS). A liquid-liquid extraction method with ethyl acetate was used to pre-treat the plasma samples. Chromatographic separation was conducted on a C18 column with isocratic elution using acetonitrile and 0.1% formic acid water solution (80:20, v/v) as the mobile phase at the flow rate of 0.3 mL/min. A TSQ Quantum Access Max API mass spectrometer equipped with electrospray ionisation (ESI) source in selection reaction monitoring (SRM) mode was employed to determine transitions of m/z 369.0 → 176.9, 373.1 → 137.0, 303.0 → 228.9, 478.9 → 120.9, 248.1 → 121.0 for CUR, THC, QR, PF, and IS, respectively. The selectivity, precision, accuracy, extraction recovery, matrix effect, and stability of the method were validated. This developed and validated method was successfully applied in the pharmacokinetic study of CUR, THC, QR, and PF in rats. The effects of QR and PF on the pharmacokinetics of CUR and its metabolite, THC, were evaluated in the plasma of Sprague-Dawley rats that were orally co-administered CUR, QR, and PF. The results showed that the combined use of QR, PF, and CUR has a possible influence on the metabolism and excretion of CUR. Our work provides a fundamental method for the rapid simultaneous determination of CUR, THC, QR, and PF in rat plasma. Furthermore, this study will provide a basic method for the analysis of pharmacokinetic interaction of CUR, QR, and PF and offer a scientific basis for a possible combination therapy with the three compounds.
