Arsenic is an environmental contaminant, while acetaminophen is an extensively used nonsteroidal analgesic-antipyretic drug. We evaluated whether subacute co-exposure to arsenic and acetaminophen would produce more toxicity than that caused by exposure to either of the xenobiotics in rats. Toxicity was evaluated through changes in body weight, feed(More)
Cypermethrin is a synthetic pyrethroid insecticide used worldwide in agriculture, home pest control, protection of foodstuff and disease vector control. The aim of the present study was to investigate the protective effect of curcumin on cypermethrin-induced genotoxicity in rats. Administration of cypermethrin (25mg/kg, p.o.) for 28 days resulted in(More)
The aim of present study was to investigate the protective effect of curcumin on cypermethrin-induced changes in blood biochemical markers and tissue antioxidant enzyme in rats. Rats were divided into six groups of six each: group I used as control and II and III groups were used as vehicle control. While, groups IV, V and VI were orally treated with(More)
The risk factors and impact of retained fetal membranes (RFM) on productive and reproductive performance of crossbred cattle, Zebu cattle, and Murrah buffalos were evaluated using data spread over 12 years. Multivariable logistic regression model was used to identify risk factors and to quantify their odds ratio (OR). Overall incidence of RFM in crossbred(More)
We examined whether acetaminophen could alter renal oxidative stress induced by arsenic; also whether withdrawal of acetaminophen treatment can increase susceptibility of kidney to arsenic toxicity. Acetaminophen (400 and 1600 mg/kg) was co-administered orally to rats for 3 days after preexposure to arsenic (25 ppm) for 28 days (Phase-I) and thereafter,(More)
We evaluated whether repeated arsenic preexposure can increase acetaminophen-induced hepatic oxidative stress. Rats were exposed to arsenic (25 ppm; rat equivalent concentration of maximum groundwater contamination level) via drinking water for 28 days. Next day, they were given single oral administration of acetaminophen (420 or 1000 mg/kg b.w.).(More)
INTRODUCTION Retention of fetal membranes (RFM) is an economically important condition in dairy cattle disturbing the health and production in affected animals. In spite of extensive research, pathogenesis for RFM and identification of a predictive marker for the condition still remains elusive. Since expulsion of fetal membranes in an inflammatory process,(More)
In artificial insemination, poor quality of semen unsuitable for cryopreservation and susceptibility of spermatozoa to cryodamage in crossbred bulls have been a matter of concern. Present study was designed to identify the testicular cytology indices that might be used to predict the semen quality and cryotolerance of spermatozoa in bulls. Based on the(More)
Retention of fetal membranes (RFM) adversely affects the production and reproduction potential of the affected cows leading to huge economic loss. Physiological separation of fetal membranes is reported to be an inflammatory process. The present study compared the concentrations of certain pro inflammatory cytokines [Interleukin 1β (IL-1), Interleukin 6(More)
Elevated cortisol concentrations have been reported to impair the functions and alter the life span of neutrophils in cows. The present study assessed the cortisol concentrations and expression of few genes related to longevity (Fas, Caspase 3, Bcl2) and margination (CD 62L, CD 18/11b) of neutrophils in relation to retention of fetal membranes (RFM) in(More)
