This study was conducted to investigate the prophylactic effects of carnitine against contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) and its relation to oxidant/antioxidant status in kidney, liver, heart, spleen and lung tissues in a CIN rat model. Twenty-eight adult male Wistar rats were divided into 4 groups, the control, contrast media (CM), carnitine and contrast(More)
The purpose of the study was to assess whether it is possible to reduce the oxidative damage using antioxidant agents combined with hormone replacement therapy after menopause. In this prospective experimental study, 50 mature female Wistar albino rats weighing 270–310 g were used. Rats were divided into the following six groups: (1) Ovx group (n = 7): the(More)
Semitendinosus (ST) muscle samples were excised pre- and postrigor from 32 experimental animals (Bos taurus). Four intact and 4 castrate males were exsanguinated when they reached age endpoints of 8, 12, 16, and 20 months. The samples were sectioned, histochemically fiber-typed for SDH and ATPase activity, and examined for giant myofibers. Of the 32 muscles(More)
Semitendinosus (ST) muscle samples were excised from 8 intact and 8 castrate male animals (Bos taurus) when they reached age end-points of 8, 12, 16, and 20 months. All three principal myofiber phenotypes (IC, IIA, IIB) increased in size with increasing age, with the IIA (fast-white) fibers usually larger than the other two types. Only at 16 and 20 months(More)
