C-2 monitoring has been proposed as a more effective strategy than C-0 to predict the risk of acute rejection in the early stages posttransplantation. However, cyclosporine (CsA) is associated with posttransplant dyslipidemia. The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate the correlations of C-0 and C-2 levels with atherogenic risk factors in the(More)
We conducted a study to investigate if lycopene could reduce gastrointestinal toxicity of abdominal and pelvic radiation in Wistar albino rats. Animals received either a control diet (Group 1), lycopene-supplemented diet (Group 2), control diet and radiation (Group 3), and lycopene-supplemented diet plus radiation (Group 4). In Groups 2 and 4, the rats(More)
The main function of vitamin K1 is to act a co-factor for gamma-glutamyl carboxylase. However, it has also been shown to lessen oxidative stress. This study was aimed to evaluate the effect of vitamin K1 supplementation on vascular responsiveness and oxidative status in rats that underwent femoral osteotomy. Twenty-four male rats were divided into three(More)
Tacrolimus (FK506) is a potent macrolide immunosuppressant used for prevention of organ transplant rejection following transplantation. Monitoring of blood tacrolimus concentrations is essential to assess organ rejection and toxicity, because of the agent's narrow therapeutic range, wide inter- and intraindividual pharmacokinetic variability as well as drug(More)
