The antiulcerogenic effect of zinc acexamate on gastric ulcers induced by reserpine and changes in the morphology of gastric mucosa were studied in rats by histochemical methods. Histochemistry revealed that zinc acexamate preserved reserpine-depleted neutral and acid glycoproteins. ATPase reaction remained strong in nearly normal periglandular capillaries.(More)
The effect of Silymarin (Legalon) upon liver lesions was investigated using four experimental models: In acute galactosamine-hepatitis, Silymarin administration achieved protection of the liver structure (electron-microscopy included), liver cell glycogen, RNA and enzymatic activity, Galactosamine-depressed gluconeogenesis in the isolated perfused rat liver(More)
The authors report their experience of 23 patients with ulcerative colitis treated with surgery from 1991 to 1994. At admission 8 patients had a high-grade illness, 10 patients had a middle-grade illness, 5 patients had a toxic megacolon. All the patients were treated with systemic medical management (mesalazine + methylprednisolone) and topical medical(More)
The protective action of aspartic acid on isolated and perfused rat liver was studied. In case of D-galactosamine intoxication the GOT, GPT and SDH activity and the lactate and pyruvate concentration in the perfusion medium were less augmented and the glycogen level in hepatic tissue was less diminished in animals treated with aspartic acid, as compared to(More)
The diagnostic accuracy of ultrasonography in differentiating between medical and surgical jaundice (99%), and in revealing the site (80%) and nature of the obstruction (79.8%) was assessed in a study on 128 jaundiced patients. The validity of this diagnostic procedure is underlined and its use is recommended in patients with obstructive jaundice.
