Urtica dioica has been known as a plant that decreases blood glucose. Despite the importance of this plant in herbal medicine, relatively little research has been down on effects of this plant on islets yet. The objective of the current study was to evaluate the effect of dried Urtica dioica leaf alcoholic and aqueous extracts on the number and the diameter(More)
The aim of this work was to determine serum cut-off levels of hyaluronic acid (HA) and laminin (LN) as predicting factors for liver necro-inflammatory injuries, highlighting their diagnostic and therapeutic follow up value in chronic hepatitis B patients. Serum HA and LN were measured in chronic hepatitis B patients (n=35) by ELISA and compared with control(More)
Lipid profile changes can be seen in metabolic syndrome and especially diabetes mellitus. The aim of this investigation is to assess the effect of ethanolic and aqueous leave extracts of this plant on serum lipid level in diabetic animal model. This study was carried out on 45 Wistar rats randomly distributed in 3 groups rats. Treatment groups received 150(More)
Teucrium polium can reduce serum glucose. There are few reports in the literature related to this subject and the resolution of this mechanism requires further experiments. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effects of Teucrium polium aerial parts extracts on oral glucose tolerance tests and pancreas histology in streptozocin-induced diabetic(More)
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of commercial monostrain and multistrain probiotics in diets on growth performance, intestinal morphology and mucin gene (MUC2) expression in broiler chicks. Three hundred seventy-eight 1-d-old male Arian broiler chicks were allocated in 3 experimental groups for 6 wk. The birds were fed on a(More)
Some plant extracts showed the ability to retard the diffusion of glucose across the dialysis tube. The present study was designed to investigate the effect of aqueous and ethanolic extracts of Teucrium polium (T. polium) on glucose movement across the dialysis tube. The T. polium powder was dissolved in ethanol and distilled water. Then glucose was added(More)
Changes in extra and intracellular neurotransmitter amino acids concentration in the early stage of acute cerebral ischemia have been reported. In this the study, serum level of gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) and L-Arginine in acute ischemic stroke patients was assessed. 60 patients with acute ischemic stroke and sixthy healthy volunteers as a control group(More)
The relationship of minerals and trace elements with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is complex. Alterations in their metabolism can be induced by the diseases and their complications. To study the role of trace elements in IBD patients’ serum zinc and copper and their related enzymes, including superoxide dismutase (SOD), activity were measured in(More)
BACKGROUND Diabetes mellitus is a common medical problem. There is in fact a growing body of literature on plants used for the treatment of diabetes. Plant materials attracted considerable interest of scientists. In this respect, in the past few years, attempts were made to use natural plant products for the treatment of patients with diabetes. OBJECTIVES(More)
The activity of one of the metabolizing enzymes of -aminobutyric acid, (GABA), was determined in mouse hypothalamus after peripheral injections of cholecystokinin-8 (CCK-8) and caerulein (CLN). The activity of this rate-limiting enzyme, L-glutamic acid decarboxylase, (GAD), did not change thirty minutes after peripheral injections of either CCK-8 or CLN in(More)
