BACKGROUND AND AIM The atherogenic pattern of dyslipidemia associated with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) has been increasingly discussed. We have recently reported a hypoglycemic effect of Nigella sativa (NS) seeds in patients with type 2 DM. In this study we sought to assess the impact of NS seeds on lipid profile in type 2 diabetic patients. PATIENTS(More)
Purpose: This phase I study was conducted to determine the general toxicities of thymo-quinone in humans, as well as any anti-cancer effects that the drug may have in patients with advanced cancer for which there were no standard curative or palliative measures. Patients and methods: Adult patients with solid tumors or hematological malignancies who had(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the effects of two, months Nigella sativa (N. sativa) oral supplementation to normal rats on cardiac haemodynamics in vivo, the ionotropic and chronotropic properties of the isolated hearts in vitro, and the cardiac responsiveness to progressive adrenergic stimulation by isoproterenol. METHODS The cardiac workload, after 2 months of N.(More)
Exercise training is employed as supplementary therapy to patients with heart failure due to its multiple beneficial cardiac effects including physiological remodeling of the heart. However, precautions might be taken for the concomitant high oxidant release. Nigella sativa (NS) has been found to induce cardiac hypertrophy and enhance cardiac function.(More)
OBJECTIVES To study the effect of Nigella sativa supplementation on cardiac functions in Type 2 diabetic patients treated with oral hypoglycemic agents. BACKGROUND Diabetes mellitus is associated with a high risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. A number of reported beneficial effects of N. sativa on cardiovascular function were the inspiration(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Oxidative stress plays an important role in pathogenesis of diabetes mellitus and its complications. Our previous study has shown glucose lowering effect produced by 3 months supplementation of Nigella sativa (NS) in combination with oral hypoglycemic drugs among type 2 diabetics. This study explored the long term glucose lowering(More)
Exercise training is employed as supplementary therapeutic intervention for heart failure, due to its ability to induce physiological cardiac hypertrophy. In parallel, supplementation with Nigella sativa (N. sativa) was found to enhance myocardial function and induce cardiac hypertrophy. In this study, we aim to compare the morphological and(More)
OBJECTIVES Exams are known to be strong external motivators for study. In this study, this observation was utilized to increase the attendance and attention of students in lectures. METHODOLOGY Tests were conducted at the end of every lecture, on the material covered in that lecture. A total of 12 tests on renal physiology, consisting of 4 MCQs each, were(More)
