The aim of the present study is to determine if a combination of vitamins (C and E) has any advantage over insulin therapy on lipid peroxidation, antioxidant activity, liver dysfunction parameters, and histological changes in the alloxan-induced diabetic rats. The enzymatic activities of glutathione peroxidase (GPX), superoxide dismutase (SOD), and catalase(More)
The aim of the eurrent study is to investigate the therapeutic and preventive effects of 1α, 25dihydroxyvitaminD3 (1,25 (OH)2 D3) andAjuga iva (AI) extraet on diabetes toxicity in rats testes. Thus diabetic rats were treated with 1α, 25dihydroxyvitaminD3 orAjuga iva extract as both therapeutie and preventive treatments on diabetes toxicity in rats testes.(More)
INTRODUCTION The chronic kidney failure is a source of dyslipidemia and accelerated atherosclerosis. No changes in the lipoprotein profile could be reversed by dialysis. OBJECTIVE Our aim was to study the lipid disturbances characteristics in end stage renal disease in order to assess their theorical atherogenic potential. SUBJECTS AND METHODS The(More)
OBJECTIVE The present study investigated the protective role of Hyparrhenia hirta (H. hirta) against sodium nitrate (NaNO3)-induced hepatoxicity. METHODS Male Wistar rats were randomly divided into three groups: a control group and two treated groups during 50 d with NaNO3 administered either alone in drinking water or co-administered with H. hirta.

UNLABELLED Diabetes mellitus is a major endocrine disorder and a growing health problem in most countries which can be ameliorated by numerous bio-molecules such as 1alpha,25 dihydroxyvitamin D3 [1alpha,25(OH)2VD3]. With this in mind, the current study investigated the therapeutic and preventive effects of 1alpha,25(OH)2VD3 on diabetes and its side effects:(More)
Our study pertains to the potential ability of selenium, used as a nutritional supplement, to alleviate oxidative stress induced by aluminum chloride in the lung tissue. Rats have received during 21 days either aluminum chloride (AlCl3) (400 ppm) via drinking water, AlCl3 associated with Na2SeO3 (0.5 mg/kg of diet), or only Na2SeO3. Exposure of rats to(More)
The individual toxic effects of aluminum and acrylamide are known but there is no data on their combined effects. The present study investigates the toxic effects after combined exposure to these toxicants on: (i) oxidative stress during combined chronic exposure to aluminum and acrylamide on kidney function (ii) correlation of oxidative stress with(More)
Hepatotoxicity, induced by aluminium chloride (AlCl3), has been well studied but there are no reports about liver metallothionein (MT) genes induction. Therefore, it is of interest to establish the mechanism involving the relation between MT gene expression levels and the oxidative stress status in hepatic cells of aluminium-treated rats. Aluminium (Al) was(More)
In the current study, the effect of Ajuga iva extract on blood glucose, lipid profile, hepatic and renal toxicity and antioxidant enzyme activities in alloxan-induced diabetic rats was investigated. Diabetes was confirmed by measuring the glucoserua concentration 15 days after alloxan administration. Ajuga iva extract was administrated orally 3 weeks after(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between the lipid effects, the phenolic content, and the antioxidative effects of an ethyl acetate extract of fenugreek. Wistar rats fed a standard laboratory diet or cholesterol-rich diets for 16 weeks were used. The plasma lipid levels, total phenolics, and total flavonoid contents were(More)
