The free floating macrophyte Lemna minor L. was harvested locally. Untreated, acid pretreated (H2SO4), alkali pretreated (NaOH) biomass were used for adsorption of copper, cadmium and nickel ions from aqueous solutions. The effect of initial pH, initial metal concentration and multi metal interaction were carried out in a batch system. The equilibrium(More)
Interstitial deletions of chromosome band 4q32 are rare. We report on a 22-year-old female patient with a de novo interstitial deletion of chromosome 4q32 and a balanced translocation t(2;5)(p21;q12.1). Clinical problems of the patient comprised mild to moderate mental retardation, psychosis, obesity, broad nasal root, sparse lateral eyebrows, thin upper(More)
Rocuronium bromide (RB), an aminosteroid type neuromuscular blocking agent, acts by reducing or inhibiting the depolarising effect of acetylcholine on the terminal disc of the muscle cell. To our knowledge, there is no adequate information on the genotoxic effects of RB, up to now. In the present study, possible genotoxic effects of RB have been determined(More)
4-Thujanol, a bicyclic monoterpene alcohol, is present in the essential oils of many medicinal and aromatic plants. It is commonly used as a fragrance and flavouring ingredient in a lot of different products. The potential genotoxic effects of 4-thujanol on human peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBLs) were investigated in vitro by the chromosome aberrations(More)
Pemetrexed (PMX) is an antineoplastic antifolate used in the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer, mesothelioma and several types of neoplasms. Its toxicity in tumor cells has been linked with the potent inhibition of thymidylate synthase, dihydrofolate reductase and glycinamide ribonucleotide formyl transferase, and subsequent depletion of both purine(More)
Amoxicillin (AMO), a drug used in the treatment of infections caused by susceptible bacteria, has been evaluated for its ability to induce genotoxicity in human peripheral blood lymphocytes. The potential genotoxic effects of AMO were investigated in vitro by the sister chromatid exchange (SCE), chromosomal aberration (CA), and micronucleus (MN) tests. The(More)
4-Thujanol (sabinene hydrate), a bicyclic monoterpene alcohol, is found in the essential oils of many aromatic and medicinal plants and is widely used as a fragrance and flavouring agent in many different products. The aim of this study was to evaluate the protective effects of 4-thujanol against the genotoxic effects induced by mitomycin C (MMC) and(More)
This study aims to find the genotoxic and cytotoxic effects of a particular combination of pemetrexed (PMX) and cefixime (CFX) in human peripheral blood lymphocytes. Chromosome aberration (CA), sister chromatid exchange (SCE), and micronucleus (MN) tests were used to assess genotoxicity. Whereas, the cytotoxicity was evaluated by using mitotic index (MI),(More)
Bezafibrate (BF) is a peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) agonist used as a lipid-lowering agent to treat both the familial or acquired combined forms of hyperlipidemia. BF is the only available fibrate drug that acts on all PPAR subtypes of α, β, and δ. Although there are studies that indicate a genotoxic potential associated with the use of(More)
