The effects of mercuric chloride (HgCl2) on lipid profiles and lipid peroxidation in different body organs of fresh water cat-fish Heteropneustes fossilis were studied. The daily exposure of HgCl2 0.2 mg/L for 10, 20 and 30 days depleted the total lipids in brain. But the content of phospholipids enhanced significantly at 30 days. Significant diminution in(More)
Electron microscopical examination of the norma and de-afferented ‘laterall geniculate body’ of the monkey following paraformaldehyde-glutaraldehyde vascular perfusion revealed distinctive morphological features of different types of oligodendrocyte. These cells were normally situated as perineuronal satellites or in relation to axons and capillaries. A(More)
Aluminum exposure is known to be associated with oxidative stress and cognitive decline in experimental animals but the precise mechanism of its neurotoxicity has not yet been delineated. The present study attempts to assess the learning and memory capacity of rats using Y-maze test for cognitive functioning. The markers of oxidative stress, e.g. lipid(More)
Four of 30 human cerebral cortex biopsies from infants ranging from four days to about ten years treated for hydrocephalus by shunt operations are described paying special attention to the vascular structures. The biopsy specimens were studied in semi-thin and ultrathin sections. Attention is drawn to the role of pinocytotic vesicles found in capillaries(More)
The effect of dichlorvos (DDVP) (0-0, dimethyl 2:2-dichlorovinyl phosphate), on various lipid fractions and lipid peroxidation in the discrete areas of the brain and spinal cord were studied in the fresh water teleost (Heteropneustes fossilis). Fishes were exposed to three different doses (3.0, 6.0 and 9.0 ppm) of DDVP daily for 7 days. Dose-related(More)

Light microscopic study of different body organs of cat-fish following exposure to HgCl2 0.2 mg/L in water for 30 days revealed that focal degeneration of liver cells and disorganization of hepatic cords occurred at places. Furthermore, centrilobular atrophy and compensatory hypertrophy of some hepatic cells were also observed. In the kidneys disintegration(More)
Dimethylaminoethyl p-chlorophenoxy acetate (80 mg/kg body weight) was administered (i. m.) to guinea pigs for 30 to 56 days. Electron microscopic examination of the hippocampus, mid-brain reticular formation and the area postrema revealed marked diminution in the electron density of the pigment granules and vacuolization. This type of lipofuscin was(More)
This study was undertaken to investigate the effect of nitrogen dioxide on some neurochemical parameters. Guinea-pigs were exposed to NO2, 5 p.p.m. and 10 p.p.m. for 2 hr daily for five weeks. The results showed significant depletion of the total lipids and phospholipids content of the cerebral hemisphere, cerebellum, midbrain and spinal cord following(More)
The effect of zinc (8 mg/kg body weight, intraperitoneally) administration daily for 7 consecutive days was studied on the levels of Zn++, Cu++ and Pb++ in the blood, spinal cord and different regions of the brain in rabbits. It was found that with increase in Zn++ concentration there was a decrease in copper levels and an increase in lead levels in almost(More)
Infection was induced in five rhesus monkeys (Macaca mulatta) by intravenous inoculation with a virulent strain of Plasmodium knowlesi. Approximately one week after inoculation, four of the exposed animals developed acute malaria and died or were killed when moribund after varying periods of illness. Post-mortem and light microscopical examination showed(More)
