The aim of this study was to evaluate the potential benefit of combined treatment with zinc (Zn) and selenium (Se) in reversing cadmium (Cd)-induced oxidative stress in erythrocytes, compared to Se or Zn treatment alone in rats exposed to Cd. For this purpose, 30 adult male Wistar albino rats were equally divided into control and four treated groups(More)
The present study was conducted to investigate whether the combined treatment with Se and Zn offers more beneficial effects than that provided by either of them alone in reversing Cd-induced oxidative stress in the kidney of rat. For this purpose, 30 adult male Wistar albino rats, equally divided into control and four treated groups, received either 200 ppm(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the potential benefit of combined treatment with zinc (Zn) and selenium (Se) in reversing cadmium (Cd)-induced thyroid dysfunction compared to Se or Zn treatment alone in rats exposed to Cd. For this purpose, 30 adult male Wistar albino rats were equally divided into control and four treated groups receiving either 200(More)
A histochemical technique for demonstrating leucocyte alkaline phosphatase activity (LAP), based on direct precipitation of lead phosphate at pH 9.5, is described. The effect of fixative, temperature and stability of the medium on the activity of the enzyme and stability of the colour reaction was thoroughly studied. Peripheral blood smears obtained from(More)
Leucocyte alkaline phosphatase activity was determined in both cell homogenates and cell extracts. Leucocytes were obtained from normal controls, pregnant females, and patients with various haematological disorders. Enzyme activity presented in terms of phosphorus per minute per 10 neutrophils was more in agreement with the reported cytochemical data in(More)
