The goal of this study was to quantify the histological changes in the dorsal root ganglion (DRG) and the sciatic nerve in rats subjected to sciatic nerve crush (SNC) following curcumin treatment. The rats were divided into four groups, each including five animals, and underwent the following intervention: group I: control animals which received olive oil;(More)
BACKGROUND Curcumin has protective effects on a variety of CNS injury models. Our purpose was to assess the effects of curcumin on the dorsal root ganglion (DRG) and functional recovery in sciatic nerve crush (SNC) of rats. METHODS The fifth lumbar DRG was removed 28 days after SNC. Sciatic functional index (SFI) and also the DRG structure were evaluated,(More)
BACKGROUND Bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (BMMSCs) transplantation has been considered as a promising milestone in liver fibrosis treatment. However, low amounts of homing are a major obstacle. We aimed to investigate the role of melatonin pretreatment in BMMSC homing into experimental liver fibrosis. METHODS BMMSCs were obtained, grown,(More)
Arsenic (As) is a widespread environmental contaminant present around the world in both organic and inorganic forms. Oxidative stress is postulated as the main mechanism for As-induced toxicity. This study was planned to examine the protective effect of acetyl-l-carnitine (ALC) on As-induced oxidative damage in male rats. Animals were randomly divided into(More)
UNLABELLED The present study explores 3D spatial arrangements of the A- and B-cells within the fifth lumbar dorsal root ganglion (DRG) of rat in order to test for differences after sciatic nerve crush (SNC). The pair correlation and cross-correlation functions were estimated through counting dipole probes superimposed on DRG sections. The data showed that(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the histological changes in the dorsal root ganglion (DRG) and the sciatic nerve in rats after sciatic nerve crush (SNC) and treatment with rosiglitazone. The rats were divided into four groups, each including seven animals, and underwent the following intervention. Group I: control animals which received carboxy(More)
