BACKGROUND AND AIM Excessive ethanol consumption can lead to development of hepatic steatosis. Since the FXR receptor regulates adipose cell function and liver lipid metabolism, the aim of this work was to examine the effects of the FXR agonist 6ECDCA on alcoholic liver steatosis development and on oxidative stress induced by ethanol consumption.

Only a small percentage of patients with Hodgkin's disease become clinically Jaundiced during their disease. This Jaundice may be secondary to biliary obstruction, hemolysis, direct hepatic infiltration by the disease, drug toxicity or viral hepatitis. Vanishing bile duct syndrome secondary to Hodgkin's disease is a rare cause of cholestasis in these(More)
Propylthiouracil is widely used to treat patients with hyperthyroidism. However, propylthiouracil-induced hepatitis is an uncommon entity. The case of a 15-year-old boy treated with propylthiouracil for hyperthyroidism who developed a cholestatic acute hepatitis is reported. Viral, metabolic and autoimmune liver diseases were excluded and liver biopsy(More)
A significant increase in cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) and its geographic expansion has motivated the development of techniques to help with diagnosis of the disease. Here we describe immunocytochemical (ICC) and immunohistochemical (IHC) techniques for the diagnosis of CL in the laboratory. Polyclonal antibodies and a modified avidin-biotin complex (Ultra(More)
This study evaluated the antitumour activity of the mesoionic compound sydnone 1 (Syd-1) against Walker-256 carcinosarcoma. Tumour cells were subcutaneously inoculated in the hind limb in male Wistar rats. The animals were orally treated for 12 days with Syd-1 (75 mg/kg) or vehicle. At the end of treatment, considerable decreases in tumour volume and tumour(More)
BACKGROUND Several studies suggest that the presence of statins may be beneficial during sepsis, but this idea is controversial. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of long-term statin treatment in the livers of septic animals, focusing on its antioxidant, antiinflammatory, and metabolic properties. MATERIALS AND METHODS Male Wistar rats(More)
Background Hepatic steatosis refers to the accumulation of triglycer-ides in hepatocytes, and it can be attributed to excessive ethanol consumption. The liver is the main organ of etha-nol biotransformation and therefore, it can suffer with oxi-dative stress generated by ethanol. Since the FXR agonist 6ECDCA regulates adipose cell function, the aim of this(More)
Introduction Otosclerosis is a disease that causes bone resorption and deposition in the auditory structures, leading to deafness. Many studies have evaluated the histopathology of the stapes footplate in this disease (osteoblasts, osteoclasts, vascular proliferation, fibroblasts, and histiocytes), but we found no studies in the literature involving the(More)
