The elevated levels of lipid peroxide product as malondialdehyde (MDA) in plasma, liver, spleen, intestine and kidney of Schistosome-infected mice were differently ameliorated by treatment with praziquantel (EMBAY 8440, CAS 55268-74-1) (2 x 500 mg/kg body wt.) being nearly normalized in plasma and intestine, moderately improved in liver and slightly(More)
Aged rats are highly prone to many physiological changes such as blood pressure and heart rate. These changes could be due to modification in membrane phospholipid composition of their blood vessels. Lipid peroxide in vivo has been identified as a basic deteriorative reaction in cellular mechanisms of aging in human. The effect of a nootropic drug,(More)
The effect of feeding groups of mice with a diet containing 2000, 4000 and 6000 micrograms aluminum (Al3-/g) for two weeks (subacute) or 2000 and 4000 micrograms Al3+/g for eight weeks (subchronic) as well as the coadministration of vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol) 500 micrograms/g with Al3+, on the status of glutathione (GSH) and lipid peroxides as(More)
Natural products like pumpkin-seed oil (PSO) may modify the potency of the calcium antagonist felodipine (FEL) or angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (ACE-inhibitor), captopril (CPT) in modulating the biochemical derangement in blood, heart and kidney as well as blood pressure and heart rate of spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) were investigated.(More)
Pumpkin-seed oil (PSO), a natural supplement rich with antioxidants and polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), was given in combination with simvastatin, as antihypercholesterolemic drug, to high cholesterol-fed rabbits, for three weeks. In comparison with normal rabbits, a significant increase of the aortic contractile response to norepinephrine was observed(More)
The level of malondialdehyde (MDA), an index of lipid peroxidation, and the antioxidants superoxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione (GSH), as well as the activity of Na+, K(+)-ATPase, were assessed in whole rat brain after immobilization, anemic hypoxia (NaNO2) and 72 h starvation. The effect of these stressors on plasma glucose and corticosterone levels(More)
