OBJECTIVES Proinflammatory cytokines and the oxidative stress response are reported to be involved in dengue viral disease. The present study investigated the correlation of proinflammatory cytokines and lipid peroxidation with dengue severity. METHODS Clinical samples from 27 dengue fever (DF) cases, 30 dengue haemorrhagic fever (DHF) cases, and 24(More)
The role of trace elements in dengue virulence is not yet known. The present study assessed the serum levels of two micronutrients, copper and iron, in cases of dengue fever. The study involved 96 patients of whom 48 had either severe or non-severe forms of dengue (with and without warning signs), and the remaining 48 were patients with other febrile(More)
PURPOSE Currently, no tests are available to monitor and predict severity and outcome of dengue. To find potential markers that predict dengue severity, the present study validated the serum level of three acute-phase proteins α-1 antitrypsin, ceruloplasmin and ferritin in a pool of severe dengue cases compared to non-severe forms and other febrile illness(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the present study was to investigate the preventive effect of Costus pictus leaf extract in experimental hypothyroidism. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty male Wistar rats were randomly divided into four groups with ten rats in each group: Control (C), hypothyroid (H), control+extract (C+E), and hypothyroid+extract (H+E).
