BACKGROUND Chronic exposure to stress alters the normal body homeostasis and, hence, leads to the development of various human pathologies, which might involve alterations in the antioxidant defense system. We studied the effect of chronic cold exposure on oxidative stress and antioxidant defense system in various rat tissues. METHODS Male albino rats(More)
We report here results of clinical trials on a birth control vaccine, consisting of a heterospecies dimer of the beta subunit of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) associated noncovalently with the alpha subunit of ovine luteinizing hormone and conjugated to tetanus and diphtheria toxoids as carriers, that induces antibodies of high avidity (K(a)(More)
Background Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the life-threatening malignancies worldwide with hepatitis B and C virus infection as the major risk factor. The risk of HCC might also increase because of the hereditary genetic defects in DNA repair genes. In this regard, X-ray cross-complementing group 1 gene (XRCC1) is a major DNA repair gene involved(More)
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the fourth most common cancer worldwide, the main etiological factors being chronic infections with hepatitis B and C viruses. Genetic polymorphic forms of glutathione-S-transferase (GST) and microsomal epoxide hydrolase (mEPHX) have been associated with risk for various malignancies. The present study was undertaken to(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Validity of the lactulose breath test (LBT) to diagnose small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) has been questioned. Therefore, a study was planned to compare LBT with glucose breath test (GBT) to diagnose SIBO in irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) patients and controls. METHODS 175 diarrhea-predominant IBS patients and 150 apparently(More)
The aetiological factors for oral cancer are not the same in India and in Western countries. Epidemiological studies have shown a correlation between high incidence of oral cancer and heavy consumption of betel and/or tobacco in the Indian population, while this study indicates an association with a genetic change. The p53 tumour-suppressor gene is the most(More)
Effects of ageing on Na+,K(+)-ATPase activity in crude synaptosomal fractions from the rat brain parietal cortex, hippocampus, striatum and thalamus has been studied. From 12 months to 24 months, a progressive decline in enzyme activity in the parietal cortex, hippocampus and striatum was found which correlated with increase in lipid peroxidation in the(More)
This study investigated the effects of chronically administered acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC) on sodium potassium adenosine triphosphatase (Na(+), K(+)-ATPase), glutathione-S-transferase (GST), glutathione peroxidase (GPx), multiple unit activity (MUA) and lipid peroxidation (LP) and lipofuscin (LF) concentration in brain regions: cerebral cortex, hippocampus,(More)

Transformed cells differ from normal cells in their pattern of heat shock protein expression. Here, we report differential expression of a Mr 70,000 heat shock protein (HSP70) in squamous cell carcinomas of the uterine cervix compared to normal or premalignant uterine cervix. Expression of HSP70 was measured using a mouse mAb against HSP70 by an ELISA. A(More)
Tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α and interferon (IFN)-γ, the pro-inflammatory Th1 cytokines are the indispensable coordinators of the inflammatory responses involved in hepatitis B virus (HBV) pathogenesis. This study attempted to evaluate any possible association among TNF-α (−308G>A) and IFN-γ (+874T/A) genotypes, the spontaneous blood and mRNA levels and(More)
