Fatalities due to mushroom poisonings are increasing worldwide, with high mortality rate resulting from ingestion of amanitin-producing species. Intoxications caused by amanitin-containing mushrooms… Expand
Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are currently the most effective drugs inhibiting hydrochloric acid secretion. They have replaced histamine type 2 receptor antagonists in the majority of clinical… Expand
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Cardiovascular benefits of fruits are attributed mainly to their (poly)phenolic constituents, especially anthocyanins. The main aim of our study is to compare effects of iridoids… Expand
Betahistine, administered intraperitoneally, decreased, in a dose-dependent manner and in a statistically significant degree, total food intake in different experimental models in rats.
The toadstool death cap (Amanita phalloides) and its subspecies, destroying angel (A. virosa) and death angel (A. verna) are responsible for nearly 95% of all fatal mushroom poisonings. High… Expand
BACKGROUND Intoxications caused by amanitin-containing mushrooms represent an unresolved problem in clinical toxicology. The objective of this study was a comparative evaluation of benzylpenicillin… Expand
α-Amanitin (α-AMA) is the main toxin of Amanita phalloides and its subspecies (A. virosa and A. verna). The primary mechanism of α-AMA toxicity is associated with protein synthesis blocking in… Expand
Amatoxin poisoning is caused by mushroom species belonging to the genera Amanita, Galerina and Lepiota with the majority of lethal mushroom exposures attributable to Amanita phalloides. High… Expand
The most often used antidote to treat poisoning caused by amanitin-containing mushrooms is benzylpenicillin (BPCN). However, a very few reports suggest that other antibiotics such as ceftazidime… Expand
Previous studies proved that food strongly enhanced the bioavailability of vinpocetine. Food may change the pharmacokinetics of a drug by affecting various factors, including gastrointestinal pH.… Expand
