In the present study, azothioprine, chloroquine, D-penicillamine, methotrexate and sodium aurothiomalate (gold salt) were evaluated for possible disease-modifying effects in the adjuvant-induced arthritis model of human rheumatoid arthritis in rats. Gait analysis was used to examine the role of disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs in the development of… (More)
Despite the modern therapies available for treating glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), it is still a deadly disease. The development of new therapeutic strategies for the management of gliomas is therefore crucial. The present study is designed to analyze the therapeutic potentials of synthetic compound N-(2-hydroxyphenyl)acetamide (NA-2) in the treatment of… (More)
Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and c-Fos are shown to promote epileptogenesis and are taken as a marker of neuronal activity. The present study investigated the expression of BDNF and c-Fos in mice brain with pentylenetetrazol- (PTZ-) induced generalized seizure and evaluated the effect of novel tryptamine derivative HHL-6 on the expression of… (More)
Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are key recognition structures of immune system and recently emerged as potential contributors to the inflammation observed in human and rodent models of arthritis. Present study aims to investigate the effect of N-(2-hydroxy phenyl)-acetamide (NA-2) on modulation of TLRs in the development of adjuvant-induced arthritis. Arthritis… (More)
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is potentially devastating condition which lacks good treatment options. Pro-inflammatory cytokines interleukin-1beta (IL-1 β ), tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF- α ), and oxidative stress markers such as nitric oxide (NO) and peroxide (PO) are mediators of RA pathogenesis. In the present study N-[2,4,5-trihydroxy-6-(hydroxymethyl)… (More)
Chronic pain and cognitive decline are characteristic symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. One of the immediate early gene c-fos is overexpressed during peripheral and central noxious conditions and can be used as a marker for neuronal activity/excitability. In the adjuvant-induced arthritis Sprague–Dawley rat model, we examined the dynamics of c-Fos protein… (More)
Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory joint disease characterized by synovial proliferation and tissue destruction. Proinflammatory cytokines like interleukin-1beta (IL-1β) and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) play a key role in the disease process and elevate energy expenditure, which further increases the joint pain and stiffness. To explore… (More)
