Ethanolic and aqueous extracts from five plant species used in Turkish traditional medicine were evaluated for in vivo hypercholesterolaemic and antioxidant activities: Agrostemma githago L., Potentilla reptans L., Thymbra spicata var. spicata L., Urtica dioica L. and Viscum album var. album L. We assayed the effects of the administration of plant extracts(More)
In the present study, we aimed to provide information on the serum content of sialic acids (TSA, LBSA, and PBSA), total antioxidant capacity (TAC), and adenosine deaminase (ADA) activity in cattle affected with naturally acquired theileriosis and anaplasmosis. A total of 55 Holstein cattle, comprising of 15 clinically healthy control animals, 20 cattle with(More)
BACKGROUND Blood serum and peritoneal fluid acute-phase proteins, oxidative stress indicators, and some enzymes could be used for evaluation of abomasal tissue damage because of displacement in displaced abomasum (DA) cases. OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to investigate the concentrations of acute-phase proteins, oxidative stress indicators, and(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the effects of enrofloxacin (ENR), flunixin meglumine (FM) and dexamethasone (DEX) on antioxidant status and organ damage markers in experimentally-induced endotoxemia. Rats were divided into three groups. To induce endotoxemia, lipopolysaccharide (LPS) was injected into all groups, including the positive control. The(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the effects of drugs used in the treatment of endotoxaemia on disseminated intravascular coagulation, cytokine levels and adenosine deaminase activities in endotoxaemic rats. Rats were divided into seven groups. Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) was injected into all groups, including the positive control group. The other six(More)
The investigations were performed on 12 Holstein cows at the age of 3-5 years. The blood samples were taken at the 2, 3, 5, 7, and 8 months of lactation. Plasma leptin levels was low during the early period of lactation and remained low until the 7 month and increased significantly (P<0.05) in the dry period. Plasma insulin levels were low at the 2 and 3(More)
Ten adult healthy bitches and 10 bitches with transmissible venereal tumour were investigated. Serum malondialdehyde, nitric oxide, antioxidant activity, vitamin C, retinol, β-carotene, adenosine deaminase activity, oestradiol-17β, progesterone, and cortisol were determined. Oxidative damage and increased adenosine deaminase activity were (P<0.05)(More)
The purpose of this descriptive study was to determine the hopelessness and depression levels of parents of children diagnosed with cancer and undergoing cancer treatment and factors affecting these levels. The study was carried out with parents of 44 children receiving treatment in a paediatric haematology clinic of a university hospital. Data were(More)
