Twelve 1-N-substituted thiocarbamoyl-3-phenyl-5-thienyl-2-pyrazoline derivatives were synthesized and their biological interactions with human plasma and erythrocyte acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and butrylcholinesterase (BuChE) enzymes were assessed. Compounds 3i-3l of newly synthesized N-substituted pyrazolines, which were presented as selective and(More)
Serum angiotensin converting enzyme activity (ACE), plasma renin activity (PRA), blood pressure (BP), blood pH, blood gases and lung function parameters were measured in patients with emphysema, extrinsic and intrinsic asthma, malignant pulmonary neoplasms, active sarcoidosis and healthy adults. Serum ACE activity was significantly higher in sarcoidosis(More)
BACKGROUND For adequate control of excess bleeding during liver resection, total vascular exclusion (TVE) is preferred by surgeons, especially when the tumor is located in the posterior liver lobes or near the cava. To the authors' knowledge, the effects of TVE technique on the postoperative liver regeneration process have not thus far been evaluated yet in(More)
In the present study, crude venom of Mesobuthus gibbosus (Buthidae), a scorpion distributed all over Anatolia was isolated and purified by the Sephadex G-50 gel filtration and high pressure liquid chromatographic (HPLC) separation. Two of the five fractions (fractions 4 and 5) obtained from the Sephadex G-50 filtration and detected as lethal on mice and(More)
To develop new drugs for treatment of Alzheimer's disease, a group of N'-2-(4-Benzylpiperidin-/piperazin-1-yl)acylhydrazones was designed, synthesized and tested for their ability to inhibit acetylcholinesterase, butyrylcholinesterase and aggregation of amyloid beta peptides (1-40, 1-42 and 1-40_1-42). The enzyme inhibition assay results indicated that(More)
The increasing life expectancy in our population makes Alzheimer's disease (AD) a growing public health problem. There is a great need to find a way to prevent and delay the disease. It was shown that monoamine oxidase-B (MAO-B) inhibitors and antiinflammatory agents might be effective in treating AD. Therefore, a novel series of(More)
3,5-Diaryl pyrazolines analogs were synthesized and evaluated for their monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitory activity. The compounds were found reversible and selective towards MAO-A with selectivity index in the magnitude of 10(3)-10(5). The docking studies were carried out to gain further structural insights of the binding mode and possible interactions(More)
PURPOSE Inflammatory bowel disease is suggested to result from a dysregulated immune response toward intestinal microflora, which may be restored by probiotic therapy based on the concept of healthy microflora. Ideal probiotic bacteria may be beneficial in inflammatory bowel disease; however, the mechanism of action and the clinical efficacy of probiotic(More)
Ten novel 3,5-diaryl pyrazolines were synthesized and investigated for their monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitory property. All the molecules were found to be reversible and selective inhibitor for either one of the isoform (MAO-A or MAO-B). Further insights in the theoretical evaluation of the possible interactions between the compounds and monoamine(More)
Targeted delivery of therapeutics is the favourable idea, whereas it is possible to distribute the therapeutically active drug molecule only to the site of action. For this purpose, in this study, catalase encapsulated poly(D,L-lactide-co-glycolide)-block-poly(ethylene glycol) (PLGA-b-PEG) nanoparticles were developed and an endothelial target molecule(More)
