The role of alpha-synuclein in pathogenesis of familial and idiopathic forms of Parkinson's disease, and other human disorders known as alpha-synucleinopathies, is well established. In contrast, the involvement of two other members of the synuclein family, beta-synuclein and gamma-synuclein, in the development and progression of neurodegeneration is poorly(More)
The role of a-synuclein in pathogenesis of familial and idiopathic forms of Parkinson's disease, and other human disorders known as a-synucleinopathies, is well established. In contrast, the involvement of two other members of the synuclein family, b-synuclein and g-synuclein, in the development and progression of neurodegeneration is poorly studied.(More)
Sepsis is a systemic inflammatory response associating severe infection leading to multi-organ failure, such as hepatic dysfunction. This study investigates the possible hepatoprotective effect of the lipoxin A4 agonist (BML-111) in cecal ligation and puncture (CLP) model in rats. Pretreatment with BML-111 (1 mg/kg, i.p., 1 h before CLP) protected against(More)
Given the increased incidence of ulcerative colitis worldwide, the current study was designed to investigate the coloprotective potential of CoQ10 against experimentally induced ulcerative colitis (UC) and specify the implicated mechanisms. Ulcerative colitis was induced by intracolonic instillation of [2 ml, 3% v/v acetic acid (AA)]. Rats in the different(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate possible renoprotective effects of febuxostat, a highly potent xanthine oxidase inhibitor, against cisplatin (CIS)-induced acute kidney injury in rats. Male Sprague Dawley rats were randomly assigned into four groups of six rats each, as follows: normal control; CIS, received a single intraperitoneal injection(More)
Gentamicin is a widely used antibiotic against serious and life-threatening infections; however, its usefulness is limited by the development of nephrotoxicity. The present study was designed to determine whether flavocoxid has a protective effect against gentamicin-induced nephrotoxicity in rats. For this purpose, we quantitatively evaluated(More)
The aim of the present work was to investigate possible protective effects of febuxostat, a highly potent xanthine oxidase inhibitor, against acute lung injury (ALI) induced by lipopolysaccharide (LPS) in rats. Male Sprague Dawley rats were randomly divided into six groups, as follows: (i) vehicle control group; (ii) and (iii) febuxostat 10 and febuxostat(More)
