Effect of zinc on immune functions and host resistance against infection and tumor challenge.
The effect of zinc treatment on immune function and resistance against infection and tumor challenge was studied in mice. Swiss albino mice were treated with zinc acetate (3 mg/kg body weight) in oneExpand
Protection against carbon-tetrachloride-induced lymphoid organotoxicity in rats by protein A.
In a previous study we described protection of rats from carbon tetrachloride (CCl4)-induced hepatotoxicity by protein A (PA). In the present report we described protection against CCl4-inducedExpand
Swertia chirayita Mediated Modulation of Interleukin‐1β Interleukin‐6, Interleukin‐10, Interferon‐γ, and Tumor Necrosis Factor‐α in Arthritic Mice
Abstract The effect of aqueous extract of Swertia chirayita stem on the pro‐ and anti‐inflammatory cytokines balance in primary joint synovium of adjuvant‐induced arthritic mice has been studied. TheExpand
Enhanced translocation of particles from lungs by jaggery.
Because industrial workers in dusty or smoky environments seemed to experience no discomfort if they consumed the sugar cane product jaggery, experimental studies were undertaken to observe theExpand
Comparative studies of different organs of Nyctanthes arbortristis in modulation of cytokines in murine model of arthritis.
OBJECTIVE To study the modulation effect of pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines following long term use of water soluble ethanol extracts from different organs of Nyctanthes arbortristis (NAT) inExpand
Cypermethrin induced biochemical alterations in the blood of albino rats.
This study was carried out to investigate blood biochemical alteration in albino rats after cypermethrin treatment. Nitrogen contents of blood in the albino rats have been influenced by the amount ofExpand
Increased macrophage activity in protein A treated tumor regressed animals.
Male swiss albino mice transplanted with 1 x 10(6) viable fibrosarcoma tumor cells were treated with Protein A (60 micrograms/kg) right from the day of transplantation for 4 weeks, twice weekly. TheExpand
In vivo protection by protein A of hepatic microsomal mixed function oxidase system of CCl4-administered rats.
The in vivo protection by protein A of hepatic mixed function oxidase system of carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) administered rats, has been investigated in the present communication. Aryl hydrocarbonExpand
Protein A protects mice from depletion of biotransformation enzymes and mortality induced by Salmonella typhimurium endotoxin.
Changes in hepatic microsomal mixed-function oxidase enzyme levels (aniline hydroxylase, aminopyrine demethylase, glutathione S-transferase), glutathione content, total sulphydryl content, and plasmaExpand
Protein A induced abrogation of cyclophosphamide toxicity is associated with concomitant potentiation of immune function of host.
This report confirms our previous observation that protein A (PA) of Staphylococcus aureus Cowan I reduces the cyclophosphamide (Cy) induced toxicity. PA treated animals recover quickly from theExpand
