It has been well established that oxidative stress and inflammation are involved in the pathogenesis of diabetic nephropathy. It has been shown that tropisetron exerts anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory properties. The current study was designed to investigate protective effects of tropisetron on early diabetic nephropathy in streptozotocin-induced(More)
Tropisetron is widely used to counteract chemotherapy-induced emesis. Evidence obtained from human and animal studies shows that tropisetron possesses anti-inflammatory properties. In this study, we assessed the effect of tropisetron on brain damage in a rat thromboembolic model of stroke. Stroke was rendered in rats by introduction of an autologous clot(More)
The aim of this study was to develop a practical model of sciatic ischemia reperfusion (I/R) injury producing serious neurologic deficits and being technically feasible compared with the current time consuming or ineffective models. Thirty rats were divided into 6 groups (n = 5). Animal were anesthetized by using ketamine (50 mg/kg) and xylazine (4 mg/kg).(More)
Vincristine (VCR) peripheral neuropathy is a dose-limiting side effect. Several studies have shown that tropisetron, a 5-HT3 receptor antagonist, exerts anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory properties. Current study was designed to investigate a suppressive effect of tropisetron on VCR-induced neuropathy and whether this effect exerts through the 5-HT3(More)
Cardiotoxicity is a life-threatening side effect of doxorubicin (DOX). Although the responsible mechanisms are largely unknown, it is demonstrated that DOX induces an elevation in the level of creatine kinase isoenzyme, lactic dehydrogenase, creatine phosphokinase, and troponin T in serum and reduces body/heart weight. In addition, cardiotoxicity is further(More)
PRIMARY OBJECTIVE Essential oil (EO) of Kelussia odoratissima Mozaff, whose main composition is Z-ligustilide, has been shown to have strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects and potent neuroprotective properties. RESEARCH DESIGN This study examined whether or not the EO could ameliorate brain damage and behavioural dysfunction in a thromboembolic(More)
Recent studies have shown that calcineurin plays a central role in hypertrophy and extracellular matrix (ECM) accumulation in glomeruli at the early stages of diabetic nephropathy. Tropisetron is an effective antiemetic drug which also can potently inhibit calcineurin. The aim of this study was to investigate whether tropisetron can prevent glomerular(More)
