The nephrotoxic action of aristolochic acid (AA) was investigated in female Wistar rats given single doses of 10, 50 or 100 mg/kg by gastric tube. Renal lesions developed within 3 days, the effect being dose-dependent. Histologically, there was evidence of necrosis of the epithelium of the renal tubules, and functionally, there were rises in plasma(More)
Female CBA/J mice were given oral doses of 40 mg/kg acrylamide 3 times weekly for 7 or 11 weeks in order to induce peripheral neuropathy. Half the animals were concurrently treated with 20 mg/kg, subcutaneously, of a ganglioside mixture (Cronassial). The other half received physiological saline and served as control. At the end of 7 or 11 weeks, the tibial(More)
The left sciatic nerve of male Wistar rats was crushed by a standardized technique. From the day of the nerve crush onwards the rats were given a daily subcutaneous injection of 50 mg/kg of a ganglioside mixture. The controls were given an equal volume of phosphate buffer. Morphometric analysis of the sciatic nerve was carried out on days 11 and 15 after(More)
The sciatic nerve of male rats was crushed in accordance with a standardized method. To investigate the positive influence of different substances on nerve regeneration, the rats received daily injections of alpha-liponic acid, vitamin B or gangliosides. After 11 days the sciatic nerves were removed and the area distal to the crush site was analyzed(More)
Following injury of their left sciatic nerves by means of a standardized procedure, male rats received intravenous injections of a tritiated ganglioside. GM1, on different days during the process of regeneration. The rats were killed at two different times after the injection and the concentrations of the total radioactivity, nonvolatile radioactivity, and(More)
