We investigated possible effects of proanthocyanidin (PA) and vitamin E on damage to rat kidneys induced by formaldehyde (FA), using biochemical characteristics and light and electron microscopy. Male rats were divided into control, FA, PA and vitamin E treated groups. Kidney tissue was observed by light and electron microscopy. Bcl-2/Bax rate was measured(More)
BACKGROUND Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) may have beneficial effects in reversing intestinal damage resulting from circulatory disorders. The hypothesis of this study is that MSCs increase antioxidant capacity of small bowel tissue following intestinal ischemia reperfusion (I/R) damage. METHODS A total of 100 rats were used for the control group and three(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM This study investigated the effect of proanthocyanidin (PA) against formaldehyde (FA)-induced lipid peroxidation damage and morphological changes in rat testes. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-one Wistar albino rats were randomized into 3 groups: control, FA, and FA + PA groups. Plasma and tissue malondialdehyde (MDA) and total sialic acid(More)
We aimed to investigate of protective role of proanthocyanidin (PA) and vitamin E (vit E) against to toxic effect of formaldehyde (FA). Twenty-eight Wistar albino rats were divided into four groups: control group, rats treated with FA intraperitoneal (i.p.) (10 mg/kg), FA + vit E intragastric (i.g.) (30 mg/kg), and FA + PA i.g. (100 mg/kg). We assayed(More)

The effects of LD25 (480 mg/kg.bw.) dose of citric acid, a food preservative, were investigated on body weight, organ weights (liver, kidney, spleen), creatin kinase (CK), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) enzymes in the blood serum, and the liver tissue of mice after 10 days. Citric acid (to(More)
Sialic acids (N-acetylneuraminic acids) are negatively charged monosaccharides which are common constituents in oligosaccharides of vertebrates and some invertebrate species[1]. They are possibly the most biologically important monosaccharide units of glycoconjugates. The majority of sialic acid in higher animals is bound up in glycoconjugates. Sialic acid(More)
We investigated the effects of naringin on small intestine, liver, kidney and lung recovery after ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury of the gut. Rats were divided randomly into four groups of eight. Group A was the sham control; group B was ischemic for 2 h; group C was ischemic for 2 h and re-perfused for 2 h (I/R); group D was treated with 50 mg/kg(More)
