The present study was designed to investigate the putative effect of vitexin, a flavone C-glucoside present in some drugs, medicinal plants and nutraceuticals, on the central nervous system. Vitexin (10-30 mg/kg) did not show significant alterations in the behaviour of mice tested in hole-board, plus-maze or activity cage tests. However, immobility time of(More)
Brown tumors are focal bone lesions, encountered in patients with uncontrolled hyperparathyroidism. They can be located in any part of the skeleton. Clinically significant lesions in the craniofacial bones are rare. Craniofacial involvement may cause facial disfiguration and compromise social ease of the patient and normal functions, such as chewing,(More)
In the present study, new 4-[4-[2-(2-(4-substituted benzylidene)hydrazinyl)-2-oxoethoxy]phenyl]-4-oxobutanoic acid derivatives were synthesized, and their anti-nociceptive and anti-inflammatory activities were investigated. In the synthesis of the compounds, 4-[4-(2-ethoxy-2-oxoethoxy)phenyl]-4-oxobutanoic acid molecule was used as starting material. The(More)
The aim of this study was to examine the effect of simvastatin (SMV), a 3-hydroxy-3-methyl-glutaryl-CoA reductase inhibitor, in rats fed with a standard or a high-fat diet (HFD) throughout the prenatal and the postnatal periods. The emotional status of the animals was evaluated by elevated plus-maze and modified forced swimming tests, whereas cognitive(More)
In the current work, new 1,3,4-thiadiazole derivatives were synthesized and investigated for their antinociceptive effects on nociceptive pathways of nervous system. The effects of these compounds against mechanical, thermal and chemical stimuli were evaluated by tail-clip, hot-plate and acetic acid-induced writhing tests, respectively. In addition,(More)
In an effort to develop potent antidepressant agents, new pyrazoline derivatives 2a-s were synthesized and evaluated for their antidepressant-like activity by tail suspension test (TST) and modified forced swimming test (MFST). The effects of the compounds on spontaneous locomotor activity were also investigated using an activity cage apparatus. Among these(More)
This present study was undertaken to synthesize and investigate possible analgesic activities of some 2-(2-carboxyphenylsulfanyl)-N-(4-substitutedphenyl)acetamide derivatives that were designed by combining an analgesic drug thiosalicylic acid and the main pharmacophore group of paracetamol, N-(4-substitutedphenylacetamide). Chemical structures of(More)
In the present work, 15 new N'-(arylidene)-4-(1-(prop-2-yn-1-yl)-1H-benzo[d]imidazol-2-yl)benzohydrazide (4a-4o) were designed and synthesized. The structures of the synthesized compounds were elucidated using FT-IR, 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR, and HRMS spectral data. The inhibitory activity of the compounds 4a-4o against hMAO-A and hMAO-B enzymes was evaluated by(More)
This present study was undertaken to examine treating effects of St. John's Wort (SJW) extract on nociceptive perception of STZ-diabetic animals based on its potential antidiabetic and antinociceptive activities. One week administrations of SJW extract (125 and 250 mg/kg) induced significant decrease in high blood glucose levels of three weeks STZ-diabetic(More)
BACKGROUND New-onset diabetes after transplantation (NODAT) is a common metabolic complication. Most conventional immunosuppressive medications, especially steroids and tacrolimus, are responsible for its development. NODAT may rarely be associated with severe, life-threating complications in kidney transplantation recipients. CASE REPORT A 44-year-old(More)
