The purpose of this work was to study the neurons of the myenteric plexus of the cecum of rats with chronic streptozotocin-induced diabetes. We used four experimental groups of animals. In groups D2 and D8 animals were killed two and eight months, respectively, after diabetes induction and groups C2 and C8 were used as controls. We carried out whole-mount(More)
We investigated the effect of the ascorbic acid on the nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate-diaphorase (NADPH-d)-stained and myosin-V myenteric neurons in the ileum of chronically diabetic rats. The study was performed 4 months after inducing experimental diabetes with streptozotocin. Diabetic rats showed increased (p<0.05) glycaemia and glycated(More)
Peripheral neuropathy caused chronically by diabetes mellitus is related to exacerbation of oxidative stress and a significant reduction in important endogenous antioxidants. l-Glutamine is an amino acid involved in defense mechanisms and is a substrate for the formation of glutathione, the major endogenous cellular antioxidant. This study investigated the(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of the ascorbic acid (AA) supplementation on the neurons that produce the vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) in the submucous plexus of the ileum of rat, four months after the induction of experimental diabetes mellitus with streptozotocin. Three groups of rats were used: C - control, D - diabetic, DA -(More)
We studied the neuronal density and size of myenteric neurons and the epithelial cell proliferation and crypt depth of the proximal colon in diabetic Wistar rats after supplementing them with L-glutamine (1%). The animals were divided into five groups: untreated normoglycemic (UN), L-glutamine-treated normoglycemic (NG), untreated diabetic (UD), and(More)
BACKGROUND Neuropathy is one of the complications caused by diabetes mellitus which is directly related to the gastrointestinal manifestations of the disease. Antioxidant substances, such as vitamin E, may play an important role in the reduction of the neurological damage caused by diabetes mellitus. The aim of the present study was to determine whether(More)
The purpose of the present study was to investigate the morphological and quantitative alterations of the myenteric plexus neurons of the stomach of rats with streptozotocin-induced chronic diabetes and compare them to those of non-diabetic animals. Samples from the body of the stomach were used for whole-mount preparations stained with NADH-diaphorase and(More)
BACKGROUND The aging process is a deteriorating process that attacks the gastrointestinal tract, causing changes in the number and size of neurons from the enteric nervous system. The activity of free radicals on enteric neurons is helped by the significant reduction of antioxidants. AIM Evaluate the effect of the ascorbic acid supplementation on the(More)
AIM To assess the effects of ME-49 Toxoplasma gondii (T. gondii) strain infection on the myenteric plexus and external muscle of the jejunum in rats. METHODS Thirty rats were distributed into two groups: the control group (CG) (n = 15) received 1 mL of saline solution orally, and the infected group (IG) (n = 15) inoculated with 1 mL of saline solution(More)
PURPOSE Sites that will receive dental implants need to be quantitatively and qualitatively suitable for this therapy. The treatment of postextraction areas with biomaterials associated with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) might make the repair process more efficient, resulting in desirable bone characteristics. The present study sought to evaluate the(More)
