Identification and Determination of Synthetic Pharmaceuticals as Adulterants in Eight Common Herbal Weight Loss Supplements
The most undeclared ingredients, which were illegally added include sibutramine, phenolphthalein, bumetanide, and phenytoin in the original super slim, herbaceous essence, super slim green lean, and fat loss, supplements, respectively.
Biological reactive intermediates that mediate dacarbazine cytotoxicity
It is suggested that H2O2 could cross the lysosomal membrane, react with lysOSomal Fe2+ to form hydroxyl radical (Haber-Weiss reaction) which is the major cause of lyssomal membrane leakiness, proteases, and other digestive enzymes' release and finally the cell death.
Developing spray-dried powders containing anthocyanins of black raspberry juice encapsulated based on fenugreek gum
Abstract Spray-dried powder of black raspberry juice was optimized using response surface methodology (RSM). The juice was prepared by dispersions formulated with different coating materials
Evaluation of Emerging Fusarium mycotoxins beauvericin, Enniatins, Fusaproliferin and Moniliformin in Domestic Rice in Iran
The results showed that 46% of the samples were contaminated with at least one of the emerging mycotoxins and no detectable level of Fusaproliferin and moniliformin was found.
Induction of mitochondrial permeability transition (MPT) pore opening and ROS formation as a mechanism for methamphetamine-induced mitochondrial toxicity
The results showed that this agent could induce oxidative stress via rising in mitochondrial reactive oxygen species (ROS) formation, lipid peroxidation, mitochondrial membrane potential collapse, and mitochondrial swelling, and it is suggested that METH could interact with respiratory complexes and METH-induced liver toxicity may be the result of its disruptive effect on mitochondrial respiratory chain.
Plants of the Genus Zingiber as a Source of Bioactive Phytochemicals: From Tradition to Pharmacy
Plants of the genus Zingiber (Family Zingiberaceae) are widely used throughout the world as food and medicinal plants. They represent very popular herbal remedies in various traditional healing
Development of a Simple RP-HPLC-UV Method for Determination of Azithromycin in Bulk and Pharmaceutical Dosage forms as an Alternative to the USP Method
The proposed method was accurate, precise, sensitive, and linear over a wide range of concentration of azithromycin and has the advantage of using UV detector compared to the USP method in which electrochemical detector has been used.
Accurate quantification of endogenous androgenic steroids in cattle's meat by gas chromatography mass spectrometry using a surrogate analyte approach.
A new quantification strategy was developed in this study, which is named "surrogate analyte approach" and is based on using isotope-labeled standards instead of natural form of endogenous steroids for preparing the calibration line and could be a promising approach in the field of compounds residue analysis.
Ion release and pH of a new endodontic cement, MTA and Portland cement
This novel endodontic cement promoted alkaline pH in a similar manner to MTA and released calcium and phosphate and can stimulate the calcification process and explain the basic physico-chemical mechanisms of hard tissue regeneration of CEM cement.
Determination of impurities in illicit methamphetamine samples seized in Iran.
The fact that 1,2-dimethyl-3-phenylaziridine was the most frequently found impurity in the analyzed samples, indicates that most of the methamphetamine samples seized in Iran have been synthesized from pseudoephedrine as starting material.
