Recent studies suggest that intermittent and prolonged normobaric hyperoxia (HO) results in ischemic tolerance to reduce ischemic brain injury. In this research, we attempted to see changes in excitatory amino acid transporters (EAATs) and TNF-alpha levels following prolonged and intermittent hyperoxia preconditioning. Rats were divided into four(More)
Several studies have indicated the involvement of oxidative stress and high glucose-induced cell death in the development of diabetic neuropathy. Satureja khuzestanica has been recommended in the literature as a remedy for the treatment of diabetes, and also contains antioxidant agents. Here, we investigated the possible neuroprotective effects of Satureja(More)
It has been shown that blockade of L-type calcium channels could abolish the development of opioid-induced antinociceptive tolerance. Here, the antitolerant effects of olive leaf extract (OLE) and its main component, oleuropein, which have a calcium channel blocker property were determined. Adult male Wistar rats were injected with morphine (20 mg/kg, i.p.)(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies have shown that pretreatment with normobaric hyperoxia has cardioprotective effect in isolated rat heart. The present study was designed to test the hypothesis that pretreatment normobaric hyperoxia could induce delayed cardioprotection effect in an in vivo regional heart ischemia. MATERIALS AND METHODS Experiment 1: Rats were(More)
Recent studies suggest that dietary virgin olive oil reduces hypoxia-reoxygenation injury in rat brain. This study investigated the effect of pretreatment with different doses of dietary virgin olive oil on brain lipidomics during stroke. In this experimental trial, 60 male Wistar rats were studied in 5 groups of 12 each. The control group received(More)
The purpose of this human study was to investigate the effect of oxygen pretreatment in living kidney donors on early renal function of transplanted kidney. Sixty living kidney donor individuals were assigned to receive either 8-10 L/min oxygen (Group I) by a non-rebreather mask with reservoir bag intermittently for one hour at four times (20, 16, 12, and 1(More)
Background: Recently, it is suggested that the use of olive leaf polyphenols like oleuropein (OLP), hydroxytyrosol (HT), and others could decrease breast cancer cells viability significantly. Also it has been shown that it inhibits cell proliferation, induces cell apoptosis, reduces cell viability, and significantly stops cell cycle in growth 1 phase (G1)(More)
AIM OF THE STUDY Olive (Olea europaea) leaves are used as anti-rheumatic, anti-inflammatory, antinociceptive, antipyretic, vasodilatory, hypotensive, antidiuretic and hypoglycemic agents in traditional medicine. Recently, it has been shown that olive leaf extract (OLE) has calcium channel blocker property; however, its influences on nociceptive threshold(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of crocin - a natural antioxidant derived from saffron - on cardiac reperfusion-induced arrhythmia and antioxidant systems such as catalase and superoxide dismutase (SOD) enzyme activities, glutathione (GSH) and malondialdehyde (MDA, as a marker of lipid peroxidation) levels. Rats in 4 experimental(More)
In this study, it was surveyed to know whether an oral single dose of oleuropein could mimic the cardiac preconditioning in rats' hearts or whether its prolonged oral administration could protect the heart against the aconitine-induced arrhythmia in rats. Eighty male Wistar rats were divided into two series (n = 8 in each group). In the first series, all(More)
