PURPOSE To evaluate the combined effect of alpha-tocopherol and gadolinium chloride (GdCl3) in reducing lipid peroxidation after severe hepatic ischemia/reperfusion (IR) injury. METHODS Sixty male Wistar rats, 200-250 g, were randomly divided into six equal groups. There were two sham operation (SHAM) groups, two untreated IR groups, and two IR groups(More)
Twenty-five 12-week-old turkeys randomly divided into five groups were given a basal diet, or a basal diet supplemented with 200 mg alpha-tocopheryl acetate/kg, or 100 mg oregano oil/kg or 200 mg oregano oil/kg, or 100 mg oregano oil plus 100 mg alpha-tocopheryl acetate/kg diet, for 4 weeks prior to slaughter. Breast, thigh, liver and heart tissues were(More)
In this study, 24 Wistar rats were allocated to 4 groups of 6 animals each. Groups 1 and 2 were fed a basal diet, while groups 3 and 4 were fed the basal diet supplemented further with ground rosemary at 1% level. Following 6-weeks feeding, groups 2 and 4 were injected 1 ml CCl(4)/kg bw and after six hours all animals were sacrificed. Results showed that(More)
1. The effects of dietary inclusion of red stigmas of Greek saffron (Crocus sativus L.) on the oxidative stability of shell eggs and liquid yolks were investigated and compared with those of dietary a-tocopherol. 2. Ninety-six Lohmann laying hens, 38 weeks old, distributed into 4 groups with 4 replicates each, were given either a control diet, diets(More)
The effects of dietary oregano essential oil and α-tocopheryl acetate supplementation on the susceptibility of raw and cooked turkey breast and thigh meat to lipid oxidation during refrigerated storage for 9 days were examined. Thirty 12-week-old turkeys were divided into five groups and fed a basal diet containing 30 mg α-tocopheryl acetate kg(-1) feed as(More)
The dietary and post-mortem uses of oregano oil in turkeys to inhibit development of lipid oxidation in breast and thigh meat during refrigerated storage were investigated. Using minced meat, patties were prepared from turkey meat post-mortem added with either 200 mg oregano oil or alpha-tocopherol/kg, meat from turkeys dietary supplemented with either 200(More)
Thirty-six 12-week-old turkeys were distributed into six groups and were raised for 4 weeks on rations containing 0%, 0.5% or 1.0% dehydrated rosemary leaves as antioxidant in the presence of alpha-tocopheryl acetate from 10 to 300 mg/kg. Following slaughtering, breast and thigh meat samples, raw or cooked, from all six groups were collected to be(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of diet supplementation with olive leaves or α-tocopheryl acetate on lipid and protein oxidation of raw and cooked n-3 enriched-pork during refrigerated storage. Enrichment of pork with α-linolenic acid through diet supplementation with linseed oil enhanced (p≤0.05) lipid oxidation in both raw and(More)
The antioxidant potential of dietary olive leaves or α-tocopheryl acetate supplementation on lipid oxidation of refrigerated stored hen eggs enriched with very long-chain n-3 fatty acids, was investigated. Ninety-six brown Lohmann laying hens, were equally assigned into three groups. Hens within the control group were given a typical diet containing 3% fish(More)
1. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of supplementation of the layer diet with olive leaves (Olea europea L.) on lipid oxidation and fatty acid profile of α-linolenic acid enriched eggs during refrigerated storage, and to compare this effect with α-tocopheryl acetate supplementation. 2. A total of 72 brown Lohmann laying hens, equally(More)
