Benzene found all over our environment and are toxic to general population especially children. This aromatic hydrocarbon being used in making of rubbers, lubricants, drugs, dyes and used as intermediate to make other chemicals and thus cause occupational hazard. Studies were carried out exposing the adult Wistar rats of 175-200gm to benzene (800mg/ kg body(More)
Sodium nitroprusside (SNP) is an antihypertensive drug with proven toxic effects attributed mainly to the production of nitric oxide (NO). Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) are widely regarded as functional foods and have been shown to ameliorate the harmful effects of many toxicants. This study examined whether feeding of fish oil (FO)/flaxseed oil (FXO)(More)
L-Arginine (ARG), an essential amino acid, is the endogenous source of the deleterious nitric oxide. Dietary ω-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA)-enriched fish oil (FO) has been shown to reduce the severity of certain types of cancers, cardiovascular disease, and renal disease. Present study examined whether feeding of FO/flaxseed oil (FXO) would have(More)
Gentamicin (GM) is an aminoglycoside antibiotic commonly used against life threatening gram negative bacterial infections, however, nephrotoxicity remains the major concern for its long term use. Although its effects on kidney are well characterized but there have been no studies regarding its effects on intestine. We hypothesize that GM causes adaptive(More)
The effect of the reversible and relatively irreversible ischemia induced acute renal failure (ARF) in the activities of alkaline phosphatase (AlkPase) and gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGTase) after early (15-30 min) and prolonged (45-60 min) ischemia in the homogenates, and the brush-border membranes (BBM) from rat renal whole, superficial (SC), and(More)
Various enzymatic systems of glycolysis and tricarboxylic acid cycle were studied in the cell-free extracts of three digenetic trematodes —Gastrothylax crumenifer andSrivastavaia indica from the rumen of the water buffaloBubalus bubalis L., andIsoparorchis hypselobagri from the catfishWallago attu. The significant activities of glucose-6-phosphate(More)
Sodium nitroprusside (SNP) a nitric oxide (NO) donor has proven toxic effects. Dietary ω-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) has been shown to reduce the severity of numerous ailments. Present study examined whether intake of fish oil (FO)/flaxseed oil (FXO, Omega Nutrition, St Vancouver, Canada) would have protective effect against SNP-induced toxicity.(More)
