OBJECTIVE The identification of the active phenolic compounds in the mixed extract of sea cucumber (Holothuria atra) body wall by high-performance liquid chromatography and an assessment of its hepatoprotective activity against thioacetamide-induced liver fibrosis in rats. METHODS Female Swiss albino rats were divided into four groups: normal controls;(More)
In the present study the chemopreventive activities of DFMO, the irreversible inhibitor of ornithine decarboxylase, and finasteride, the inhibitor of prostatic 5a-reductase, against the development of chemically induced prostate adenocarcinoma by methylnitrosourea/testosterone propionate in male Wistar rats were investigated. According to histological(More)
There is no standard treatment of chronic nonbacterial prostatitis in humans. The current study was aimed to investigate the effect of montelukast, an antagonist of cysteinyl leukotriene receptor-1, against estrogen-induced, nonbacterial lateral lobe-specific prostate inflammation in rats. Male Wistar rats were randomized into five groups of six rats,(More)
CONTEXT The antitumor activity of aloin, the active anthraquinone of Aloe juice, against different murine and human tumors has been reported. OBJECTIVE In the present study, the impact of repeated aloin treatment at its maximum tolerated dose on serum levels of lipid profile, some elements, iron status and kidney function, compared with doxorubicin (a(More)
The present study was undertaken to investigate the effect of dietary supplementation with nimesulide or eugenol on N-nitrosodiethylamine (DEN)-initiated early hepatocarcinogenesis in F344 male rats. Both compounds did not alter the expression of cytochrome P450 (CYP) 2E1, the enzyme that plays a major role in the activation of DEN to genotoxic products;(More)
The effects of leuprorelin acetate, a luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone agonist (LHRH-A), on prostate carcinogenesis in probasin/SV40 Tag transgenic rat was investigated. Fifteen weeks after administration of 0.28 and 2.8 mg/kg leuprorelin, prostate weights and serum testosterone levels were significantly decreased compared to values for transgenic(More)
Gentamicin (GM) is an effective aminoglycoside antibiotic against life-threatening Gram-negative bacteria. However, a major complication of therapeutic doses of GM is nephrotoxicity, which is believed to be related to the generation of reactive oxygen species. The present study was therefore aimed to investigate the protective effect of eugenol, a phenolic(More)
OBJECTIVE The present study was undertaken to identify patient populations at high risk for bone metastases (BM) at any time after diagnosis of operable breast cancer. SUBJECTS AND METHODS A total number of 59 cases with breast cancer after mastectomy was subdivided into two main groups that included 30 patients with radiologically confirmed BM and 29(More)
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), a disease occurring frequently among elderly males, is a slow progressive enlargement of the fibromuscular and epithelial structures of the prostate gland. Dietary factors may influence the prostate and exert an influence on prostatic growth and disease. The current study was undertaken to investigate the protective(More)
Aluminium (Al) is a neurotoxic metal that contributes to the progression of several neurodegenerative diseases. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the protective effect of dietary eugenol supplementation against aluminium (Al)- induced cerebral damage in rats. Male Wistar rats were divided into four groups: normal controls, rats fed a diet(More)
