OBJECTIVE The aim of the present study was to determine to what extent ovarian reserves are affected by ischemia-reperfusion injury, evaluating the number of growing follicles and the serum levels of the ovarian hormones. STUDY DESIGN Thirty female fertile adult Wistar albino rats, weighing 200 to 220 g, were previously numbered to randomization, and then(More)
OBJECTIVES To examine placental expression of vimentin and desmin in relation to ultrastructural changes within the placental villi in cases of HELLP syndrome. STUDY DESIGN Formaldehyde-fixed and paraffin-embedded specimens of 15 healthy pregnant and 13 Hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes, and low platelet count (HELLP) syndrome, placentas were used for(More)
The aim of this study was to examine whether dexmedetomidine improves acute liver injury in a rat model. Twenty-eight male Wistar albino rats weighing 300-350 g were allocated randomly to four groups. In group 1, normal saline (NS) was injected into the lungs and rats were allowed to breathe spontaneously. In group 2, rats received standard ventilation (SV)(More)
Dithiocarbamate propineb and maneb are organometal fungicides, which are widely used for the control of diseases in plants. Female Wistar rats were exposed orally to 200 and 400 ppm propineb and 250 ppm maneb, from the sixth day of gestation up to birth. We found that the body weights of both one-day old litters and their fungicide-treated mothers were(More)
In this experimental study, the prophylactic effects of Gingko-Biloba Extract (GBE) were examined after experimental ischemia on intestinal wall damage. 50 Wistar-Albino rats (2.5 month old) were gathered and separated into 5 groups (n:10). Group 1 was subjected to a laparotomy (sham-operated group) whereas all other experimental groups were subjected to an(More)
Dithiocarbamate propineb and maneb are organometal fungicides, which are widely used for the control of diseases in plants. Female Wistar rats were exposed orally to 200 and 400 ppm propineb (Zn-containing dithiocarbamate) and 250 ppm maneb (Mn-containing dithiocarbamate), from the 6th day of gestation up to birth. We found that the body weights of both(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to determine the effects of whole blood, crystalloid, and colloid treatment on histopathologic damage of kidney induced by hemorrhagic shock in rats. METHODS Fifty-six male Sprague Dawley rats were divided into 8 groups. The carotid artery was cannulated, and systolic arterial pressure (SAP), diastolic arterial pressure(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the histopathologic and immunohistochemical effects of systemic use of nicotine on the submandibular glands. STUDY DESIGN We investigated the effects of nicotine on apoptosis and angiogenesis. Twenty adult Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into 2 groups: nicotine (n = 10) and controls (n = 10). The rats of the nicotine group were(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of Potentilla fulgens as a prophylactic agent on tibial defects in the rat. STUDY DESIGN Twenty-eight male Wistar albino rats weighing 200-215 g each were divided into 3 experimental groups. The tibial bone defect group served as the control group. The experimental groups were Potentilla fulgens with tibial defect (14(More)
Clomiphene citrate has estrogenic and teratogenic effects on the developing rat and human fetal genital tract. Clomiphene citrate was given subcutaneously to newly born rats by daily injections of 100 micrograms/kg and changes caused by clomiphene in female rats were investigated at 28 and 35 days. Depending upon the effect of clomiphene citrate,(More)
