We evaluated the effect of zinc treatment on the blood–brain barrier (BBB) permeability and the levels of zinc (Zn), natrium (Na), magnesium (Mg), and copper (Cu) in the brain tissue during epileptic seizures. The Wistar albino rats were divided into four groups, each as follows: (1) control group, (2) pentylenetetrazole (PTZ) group: rats treated with PTZ(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a clinical condition characterized by central obesity, elevated triglycerides, low-high density lipoproteins, impaired fasting glucose, and hypertension.

OBJECTIVES Folic acid (FA) is physiologically important in mammals and is a common vitamin supplement used during pregnancy and lactation. Numerous studies have reported that FA significantly improves endothelial function. The blood-brain barrier (BBB) plays an important role in maintaining the microenvironment required for neuronal function, but its unique(More)
Glucose is an important metabolic substrate for all cells, including brain cells. However, homeostatic degradation of glucose due to increased glucose levels affect cerebral functions directly or indirectly. Formation of the advanced glycation end-products and of free radicals as a result of an increase in brain glucose affect the brain indirectly, whereas,(More)
