Effects of BDE-99 on hormone homeostasis and biochemical parameters in adult male rats.
In this study, we evaluated the effects of BDE-99 on hormone homeostasis, as well as in urinary and serum biochemical parameters of adult male rats. Animals (10 per group) received BDE-99 by gavageExpand

Assessment of the pro-oxidant activity of uranium in kidney and testis of rats.
The pro-oxidant activity of uranium (U) was assessed in kidney and testes of male rats, tissues in which toxic effects of this metal are well established. Eight groups of Sprague-Dawley rats receivedExpand

Behavioral effects and oxidative status in brain regions of adult rats exposed to BDE-99.
Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) are used as flame retardants. Although developmental neurotoxicity of PBDEs has been already investigated, little is still known about their potentialExpand

Age-related effects of aluminum ingestion on brain aluminum accumulation and behavior in rats.
Both aluminum and aging have been associated with neurobehavioral changes in mammals. This study assessed in young (21 day old), adult (8 months), and old rats (16 months) the effects of prolongedExpand

Perinatal exposure to BDE-99 causes learning disorders and decreases serum thyroid hormone levels and BDNF gene expression in hippocampus in rat offspring.
Exposure of pregnant women to polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) may mean serious health risks. The main goal of the present study was to examine the neurobehavioral changes in rat offspring thatExpand

Effects of exposure to BDE-99 on oxidative status of liver and kidney in adult rats.
Little is known about the potential toxicity of polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) on hepatic and renal tissues. In this study, we investigated the modifications in endogenous antioxidantExpand

Pro-oxidant effects in the brain of rats concurrently exposed to uranium and stress.
Metal toxicity may be associated with increased rates of reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation within the central nervous system (CNS). Although the kidney is the main target organ for uranium (U)Expand

Interactions of Caffeine and Restraint Stress During Pregnancy in Mice 1
The maternal and developmental toxicity of combined exposure to restraint stress and caffeine was assessed in mice. On gestational Days 0–18, three groups of plug-positive females (n = 13–15) wereExpand

The effect of age on aluminum retention in rats.
The present study was designed to assess potential changes in aluminum (Al) retention during advanced age. Young (21 day old), adult (8 months), and old (16 months) rats were exposed to 0, 50, andExpand
