The preventive effect of Qing Dai on bisphosphonate-induced gastric cellular injuries




<p>The Chinese herbal medicine Qing Dai has been traditionally used for the treatment of various inflammatory diseases. We previously reported that reactive oxygen species play an important role in bisphosphonate-induced gastrointestinal injuries and that Qing Dai improved ulcerative colitis by scavenging reactive oxygen species. In this study, we investigated whether Qing Dai prevented bisphosphonate-induced gastric cellular injuries. Risedronate (a bisphosphonate) was added to rat gastric mucosal cells. Risedronate-induced cellular injury, cellular lipid peroxidation, mitochondrial membrane potential, and reactive oxygen species production in rat gastric mucosal cells were examined via viable cell counting, specific fluorescent indicators, and electron spin resonance. Pretreatment with Qing Dai attenuated the fluorescence intensity of diphenyl-1-pyrenylphosphine and MitoSox as well as the signal intensities of electron spin resonance. Cell viability improved from 20% to 80% by pretreatment with Qing Dai. Thus, Qing Dai prevented this injury by suppressing mitochondrial reactive oxygen species production, which is the main cause of cellular lipid peroxidation. Qing Dai also maintained mitochondrial potential, reducing reactive oxygen species production. We conclude that Qing Dai has protective effects on bisphosphonate-induced gastrointestinal injury and thus has the potential for clinical application.</p>
