The seasons, and daily physical rhythms can have a profound effect on the physiology of the living organism, which includes immune status. The immune system can be influenced by a variety of signalsExpand
Anti-cancer evaluation of quercetin embedded PLA nanoparticles synthesized by emulsified nanoprecipitation.
This study was carried out to synthesize quercetin (Qt) embedded poly(lactic acid) (PLA) nanoparticles (PLA-Qt) and to evaluate anti-cancer efficacy of PLA-Qt by using human breast cancer cells.Expand
Melatonin prevents X-ray irradiation induced oxidative damagein peripheral blood and spleen of the seasonally breeding rodent, Funambulus pennanti during reproductively active phase
Purpose: Biological effects of X-ray irradiation and protection by melatonin on the immune status of a tropical rodent, Funambulus pennanti, was examined by estimating oxidative damage of peripheralExpand
Pineal Gland and Humidity Effects on Testicular Function of the Indian Palm Squirrel, Funambulus pennanti
The effect of two different conditions of humidity (80 ± 5% and 40 ± 5%) under stimulatory photoperiod (14L/10D) and high temperature (38 ± 2°C) was studied on the testes and accessory sex organs ofExpand
Melatonin improves humoral and cell-mediated immune responses of male golden hamster following stress induced by dexamethasone
Melatonin is known as an antistress and immunostimulator compound while glucocorticoids have immunosuppressive function. The mechanism of action of both the hormones on immune cells is still aExpand
Melatonin and its correlation with testosterone in polycystic ovarian syndrome
CONTEXT: Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is considered to be the most common endocrine disorder affecting women. Melatonin, a small lipophilic indoleamine, and reproductive hormones may beExpand
Comparative effect of melatonin and vitamin E on phenylhydrazine‐induced toxicity in the spleen of Funambulus pennanti
Phenylhydrazine (PHZ) oxidation resulting in free iron release followed by free radical generation has increased frequency of cancer. This study aims towards the dose‐dependent response of PHZ andExpand

Effect of the pineal gland on circadian rhythmicity of colony forming units for granulocytes and macrophages (CFU‐GM) from rat bone marrow cell cultures
Abstract: The present study provides evidence that the pineal gland has a physiological role in the proliferation of colony forming units for granulocytes and macrophages (CFU‐GM). A biphasicExpand
