Twenty preeclamptic, 25 normotensive pregnant and 25 healthy nonpregnant women were analyzed with regard to serum malonaldehyde (MDA), vitamin E and lipid profile. In preeclampsia, MDA was significantly higher than control. MDA also showed high correlation to the level of blood pressure. Serum cholesterol and triglycerides were increased in normotensive(More)
The present study evaluates the presence of oxidative stress in the uncontrolled diabetic state. Glycemic control reduced the oxidative stress, but total normalization of the parameters of oxidative stress was not achieved, indicating continued oxidant injury despite optimal control of the diabetes. Vitamin E supplementation for 4 weeks in these patients(More)
Serum magnesium levels have been estimated in 25 patients with head and neck cancer. The results have been compared with a group of 25 healthy controls. In cancer patients the mean value was significantly reduced when compared with the control group. A progressive, and significant, increase in serum magnesium concentration was observed following(More)

We studied changes in lipid peroxidation, vitamin E status and lipid profile due to smoking in healthy subjects, patients with acute myocardial infarction (MI), and in stabilized patients surviving MI. A significant increase in malondialdehyde (MDA) concentrations was observed in MI patients, more than in smokers (P<0.05), as compared to control. The plasma(More)
Metal pollution in the marine coastline environment is an important topical issue in the context of ecological disturbance and climate change. Heavy metal contaminations (Cd, Cr, Cu, Mn, Ni, Pb and Zn) in seawater and surficial sediments, as well as macroalgal diversity, were determined in six different locations along the coast of the Gulf of Kutch in(More)
The 26 December 2004-Tsunami has deposited sediments in the Pichavaram mangrove ecosystem, east coast of India. Ten surface and three core sediment samples were collected within thirty days of the event. High concentrations of Cd, Cu, Cr, Pb, and Ni were observed in the tsunamigenic sediments. With respect to Fe, Zn, and Mn, there was little variation as(More)
