Previous studies have described paw preference and asymmetry in dog brains. Electrical activity of the dorsal hippocampus also indicated the existence of hippocampal asymmetry in dogs. In the present study, the possible paw and sex-related asymmetries and right-left differences in dog hippocampus were investigated. The hippocampus was dissected and weighed.(More)
In this study, the effect of leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) on cisplatin (CDDP)-induced neuropathy was evaluated. Mice were treated with CDDP, 2 mg/kg i.p. twice a week nine times. During the last week some of the mice were also injected with LIF, 2 mug/kg s.c. every other day for a total of four injections. Development of neuropathy was evaluated with(More)
The normally developing cardiovascular system of the chicken resembles that of the human. The purpose of the present study is to investigate some macroscopic and microscopic similarities between the chick and the human heart. For this study 20 adult and 10 newborn Broiler chickens were used. The heart and great vessels were routinely fixed in 10%(More)
In order to test the effectiveness of a new advanced time-lapse microscopy imaging and image processing and analysis system, and to do quantitative and qualitative temporal analyses of in vitro peripheral nerve regeneration, long-term time-lapse imaging of cultures of mouse dorsal root ganglia (DRGs) was performed. DRGs were placed in a Petri dish, covered(More)
BACKGROUND Absorption of autologous fat graft in the recipient area necessitates recurrent fat transplantation. Harvesting extra tissue during the first operation and storing it for future use is considered a solution to this problem. METHODS Fat tissue was removed from the inguinal region of 40 Swiss albino mice, which were arranged into four equal(More)
INTRODUCTION The use of mobile phones has become widespread in recent years. Although beneficial from the communication viewpoint, the electromagnetic fields generated by mobile phones may cause unwanted biological changes in the human body. OBJECTIVE In this study, we aimed to evaluate the effects of 2100MHz Global System for Mobile communication(More)
To analyse the contributions of metabolic toxicity of high glucose level and accompanying hyperosmolality to the development of diabetic neuropathy, mouse dorsal root ganglion (DRG) cultures were used. DRGs from postnatal day 7 mice were embedded in collagen gel and incubated in RPMI 1640 culture medium with increasing concentrations of glucose or equimolar(More)
Neuroprotective effect of Ginkgo biloba extract EGb761 in cisplatin (cis-diamminedi-chloroplatinum, or CDDP)-induced peripheral neuropathy was investigated. Swiss albino mice were treated with CDDP, 2 mg/kg ip twice a week for nine times. One group of the animals also received EGb761 in the drinking water at an estimated dosage of 100 mg/kg per day. Two(More)
This study was designed to investigate the effect of systemic administration of BCG on the morphological quantitative changes in the number of lymphocytes, macrophages and plasma cells in the uterus and lymph nodes of rats. Thirty female virgin Wistar Albino rats, aging 6 months and weighing between 200-250 g, were assigned to the two experimental groups;(More)
Non-enzymatic glycation of peripheral nerve extracellular matrix (ECM) may contribute to the development of diabetic distal sensory neuropathy (DNP). We investigated the relative importance of glycation of collagen types I and IV, laminin and fibronectin in DNP-related impairment in peripheral nerve regeneration. Dorsal root ganglia (DRGs) from young adult(More)
