In this study we aimed to investigate the effect of pentoxifylline on caerulein-induced acute pancreatitis (AP) by detecting oxidative stress markers and performing histopathological examination. Twenty-one adult female Sprague–Dawley rats were divided into three groups as follows: control, caerulein, and caerulein + pentoxifylline groups. Pancreatic(More)
Aim: Acetylsalicylic acid (ASA, aspirin), which is one of the most frequently used drugs in the world, causes severe gastric mucosal injury. Nitric oxide (NO) is synthesized from L-arginine by nitric oxide synthase (NOS). NOS can be inhibited by Nω-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME) and stimulated by supplementing the diet with L-arginine (L-Arg). The(More)
This study aims to investigate the degree of biocompatibility and neuroregeneration of a polymer tube, poly-3-hydroxyoctanoate (PHO) in nerve gap repair. Forty Wistar Albino male rats were randomized into two groups: autologous nerve gap repair group and PHO tube repair group. In each group, a 10-mm right sciatic nerve defect was created and reconstructed(More)
Background: One of the major adverse effects of long term cyclosporine A (CyA) administration is chronic nephrotoxicity. Several studies have suggested that alterations of the L-arginine (L-Arg) nitric oxide (NO) pathway may be involved in the pathogenesis of CyA-induced kidney damage. Aim: We postulated that in vivo activation of L-Arg-NO pathway might(More)
