OBJECTIVES Acetaminophen is a commonly used antipyretic agent which, at high doses, causes renal tubular damage and uremia. Bacteriotherapy affords a promising approach to mitigating uremic intoxication by ingestion of live microbes able to catabolize uremic solutes in the gut. The present study evaluates the nonpathogenic soil-borne urease-positive(More)
The total antioxidative activity of L. ingluviei ADK10 isolated from chicken intestine intact cells and cell free culture supernatant (CFCS) was 54- 67.95%. The ability to scavenge a,a-Diphenyl-b-Picrylhydrazyl free radical ranged from 71 and 64% in intact cells and CFCS respectively. Total reducing activity of bacteria was equivalent to 290 microM/L of(More)
Uremia means excess nitrogenous waste products in the blood & their toxic effects. An acute acetaminophen (paracetamol, N-acetyl p-aminophenol; APAP) overdose may result into potentially fatal hepatic and renal necrosis in humans and experimental animals. The aims of this present study were to investigate the protective effect of alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) on(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate phytochemical screening, antimicrobial activity and qualitative thin layer chromatographic separation of flavonoid components, antioxidant activity and total flavonoid compound of Terminalia arjuna. METHODS For phytochemical screening, some common and available standard tests were done. Antimicrobial bioassay was done through agar(More)
Dehydration or water deprivation in the body decreases urinary excretion and allows urea and other protein waste products to accumulate in the blood. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the association of uremia and oxidative stress by applying the herbal plant Withania somnifera (W. somnifera) (Aswagandha). The study was performed on male Wister(More)
Currently kidney disease appears a foremost problem across the world. Acetaminophen is a commonly used antipyretic agent, which in high doses, causes uremia and used for experimentally induction of kidney disease. Bacteriotherapy affords a promising approach to mitigate uremic toxins by ingestion of urease positive bacteria, probiotics and symbiotic able to(More)
The purpose of this study was to show the effect of cold exposure on testicular activities in breeding and hibernating seasons in the toad. Adult male toads were placed in a cold chamber in both breeding and hibernating seasons for periods of 7, 14 and 21 days. At the time of sacrifice on the 15th and 22nd days, cold-exposed animals showed a decrease in(More)
Lithium chloride, a compound with clinical use in bipolar disorder, produces adverse effects on ovarian function in amphibian and rodent models. This study examined the effect of human chorionic gonadotrophin coadministration on ovarian steroidogenic and gametogenic activities in lithium chloride-treated rats. Relative ovarian and uterine weights, ovarian(More)
Injection of lithium chloride at the dose of 200 micrograms/toad/alternate day for 7, 14 and 21 days caused a significant reduction in the activities of testicular delta 5-3 beta, 17 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase and acid phosphatase enzymes. There was a marked inhibition in spermatogenesis in lithium chloride treated toad for 14 and 21 days of(More)
Steroidogenic key enzymes, i.e. delta 5-3 beta and 17 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (delta 5-3 beta and 17 beta-HSD) activities, in the testis and Bidder's organ of the toad were inhibited and ascorbic acid synthesis in these organs was decreased by a wide range of lithium concentration in in vitro study. A significant inhibition was noted at a(More)
