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)
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)
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)
OBJECTIVE To study the effect of prophylactic agents allopurinol, verapamil, dexamethasone and trifluoperazine on ischemic intestinal damage. STUDY DESIGN Sixty albino Wistar rats weighing 120-150 g were used. Group 1 animals underwent sham laparotomy without ischemia-reperfusion injury. Group 2 animals underwent laparotomy and occlusion of superior(More)
BACKGROUND Tamoxifen (Tx) is used mostly in the treatment of breast and gynecological cancers. It is also widely used in the treatment of different dermatological disorders. However, its effects on skin have not been investigated previously. OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of Tx administration on rat skin. METHODS Forty Spraque-Dawley female(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)
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)
BACKGROUND Nicotine is a well-known toxic alkaloid substance with several teratogenic effects. In animal studies it has been observed that nicotine led to intrauterine growth retardation and intrauterine growth abnormalities including anancephaly, neonatal death and low birth weight. However, the teratogenic effects of nicotine have not previously been(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)
Lead is a metal that has been implicated in toxic processes, which affect several organ systems in humans and other animals. The purpose of this study was to investigate the ultrastructural effects of lead on the brain of rats.Wistar Albino rats (180-200 g body weight) were divided into a controlled and lead acetate-exposed group. Rats received lead acetate(More)
