Biological effects of gum arabic: a review of some recent research.
TLDR
GA has proabsorptive properties and can be used in diarrhoea, and has some antimicrobial activity, suggesting a possible use in dentistry, but more studies are needed before its pharmacological properties can be utilized in therapy. Expand
Effect of Acacia gum on blood pressure in rats with adenine-induced chronic renal failure.
TLDR
Adenine-induced CRF in rats significantly increased BP, and this was significantly mitigated by administration of AG, while the antihypertensive angiotenisn-converting enzyme inhibitor lisinopril was given by gavage to rats concomitantly with adenine, significantly reduced the rise in blood pressure induced by adenines. Expand
Motor and behavioral changes in rats with adenine-induced chronic renal failure: influence of acacia gum treatment
TLDR
Adenine-induced CRF caused motor and behavioral alterations, and these were significantly mitigated by administration of AG, which has been previously shown to ameliorate the severity of CRF in humans and rats. Expand
Long-term ingestion of Hibiscus sabdariffa calyx extract enhances myocardial capillarization in the spontaneously hypertensive rat
TLDR
Changes suggest that the observed beneficial effect of HS on high BP in SHRs could be mediated through a reduction in the diffusion distance between capillaries and myocytes, as well as new vessel formation. Expand
Long-term exercise training and angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibition differentially enhance myocardial capillarization in the spontaneously hypertensive rat
TLDR
A combination of the two treatments enhanced myocardial capillarization more than either intervention alone, which may aid in the restoration of the normal nutritional status of cardiac myocytes compromised by the hypertrophic state of hypertension. Expand
Effect of Hibiscus sabdariffa and its Anthocyanins on Some Reproductive Aspects in Rats
TLDR
Results suggest that H. sabdariffa exerts no adverse effect on the male reproductive system, and the possible presence of an estrogenic effect of the extract and anthocyanins on the uteri of immature female rats was tested. Expand
Additional salutary effects of the combination of exercise training and an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor on the left ventricular function of spontaneously hypertensive rats

  • 1 June 2009
TLDR
Experimental evidence is provided that lisinopril administration, when combined with moderate exercise training, is more promising in attenuating cardiac dysfunction than either agent alone in hypertension of a genetic origin. Expand
Changes in serum concentrations of markers of myocardial injury following treadmill exercise testing in patients with suspected ischaemic heart disease.
TLDR
The measurement of CK-MB, but not cardiac troponins may add to the diagnostic utility of the TEST, which is frequently used in patients with suspected ischaemic heart disease to establish a diagnosis and estimate future risk. Expand
Blood pressure and its reactivity in the offspring of first cousin hypertensive and first cousin normotensive parents: a preliminary report
TLDR
This study indicates that at an early age, the offspring of first cousin hypertensive parents, react with exaggerated BP response at their first casual BP measurement, and hypothesise that familial aggregation of BP may show more expression amongst the children of consanguineous marriage of hypertensive parent(s). Expand
Changes in serum concentration of antioxidants following treadmill exercise testing in patients with suspected ischaemic heart disease
TLDR
Mean total plasma antioxidant status showed no significant temporal change for the group as a whole, although there was a nonsignificant decrease immediately post‐TEST in the ischaemic group and a slight rise at 8 h in the group negative for ischaemia. Expand
