Cyclophosphamide (CPX) is an anticancer drug with immunosuppressive properties. Its adverse effects are partly connected to the induction of oxidative stress. Some studies indicate that water-soluble derivative of morin-morin-5'-sulfonic acid sodium salt (NaMSA) exhibits strong antioxidant activity. The aim of present study was to evaluate the effect of(More)
Results of some studies on the interaction of noble metals with quercetin (Q) and quercetin-5'-sulfonic acid (QSA), the compounds of flavonoid group, are presented. The reactions of chloride complexes of the metals: RuOHCl5(2-), PdCl4(2-), OsCl6(2-), PtCl6(2-) and AuCl4- with both reagents were examined. The redox reactions of ruthenium and gold with Q and(More)
The antibacterial activity of morin, sodium salt of morin-5"-sulfonic acid (NaMSA) and new complexes of La (II), Gd (III) and Lu (III) with morin were tested against three bacterial strains: Escherichia coli G (-), Klebsiella pneumoniae G (-), Staphylococcus aureus G (+) and compared with the activity of penicillin. All of the complexes possess inhibitory(More)
Mainstream media messages contain limited, distorted and negative images of Native Americans, thus promoting continued ethnic marginalization. Community-oriented online venues like the viral video sites have opened up new platforms for depiction. This study employed a quantitative content analysis to examine a sample of YouTube videos relating to Native(More)
Water-soluble quercetin-5'-sulfonic acid sodium salt (NaQSA) and morin-5'-sulfonic acid sodium salt (NaMSA) could exert an antagonistic effect on cadmium intoxication. The aim of the study was to examine the influence of these substances on superoxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione (GSH) levels in the mouse liver in the subacute cadmium intoxication model.(More)
Hexavalent chromium compounds exhibit higher toxicity than its trivalent compounds since chromium ions in the +6 oxidation state easily cross biological membranes. It has recently been proposed that substances reducing chromium ions from the +6 to the less toxic +3 oxidation state can be beneficial in management of acute chromium poisoning. In vitro studies(More)
BACKGROUND Quercetin-5'-sulfonic acid sodium salt (NaQSA) exerts good aqueous solubility, strong antioxidant activity and low toxicity. OBJECTIVES The aims of this study were to investigate the effect of NaQSA on superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity and ADMA/DDAH pathway during extracorporeal liver perfusion (ELP). MATERIAL AND METHODS The study was(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess changes of interleukin 6 (IL-6) and interleukin 1 receptor antagonist (IL-1ra) in serum, sputum, and drained pleural fluid of patients operated on due to lung cancer. METHODS Twenty-seven patients treated with lobectomy or pneumonectomy, including 14 with complications and 13 without complications, were analyzed. Serum IL-6 and IL-1ra(More)
New solid complex compounds of La(III), Ce(III), Pr(III), Nd(III), Sm(III), Eu(III) and Gd(III) ions with morin were synthesized. The molecular formula of the complexes is Ln(C(15)H(9)O(7))(3).nH(2)O, where Ln is the cation of lanthanide and n=6 for La(III), Sm(III), Gd(III) or n=8 for Ce(III), Pr(III), Nd(III) and Eu(III). Thermogravimetric studies and the(More)
Two complexes of calcium ions containing monodeprotonated caffeate ligands were synthesized and physicochemically (IR, FIR, NMR, thermal analysis) and theoretically (DFT and pharmacokinetical parameters) characterized. [Ca(C(9)H(7)O(4))(2)].2H(2)O 1a and [Ca(C(9)H(7)O(4))(2)].2H(2)O KNO(3)1b are compounds with unusual four coordinate calcium ion containing(More)
