CONTEXT Intestinal ischemia-reperfusion (IIR) not only leads to severe intestine damage but also induced subsequent destruction of remote organs. OBJECTIVE We investigated the protective effect of Pistascia lentiscus L. (Anacardiaceae) oil on IIR. MATERIALS AND METHODS Wistar rats were divided into three groups: sham, intestinal IR and P. lentiscus(More)
The current study was designed to investigate the possible mechanism involved in hyperglycemia induced by chronic exposure to deltamethrin (DLM) in rat and to assess whether this damage is amenable to modulation by Zygophyllum album. DLM, a synthetic pyrethroid pesticide, was administrated at a dose of 4 mg/kg body mass, during 60 days. Compared with(More)
In the present study, we evaluated the antioxidant potential of Artemisia campestris essential oil (ACEO) and the possible protective effects against deltamethrin induced hepatic toxic effects. The ACEO showed radical scavenging activity with IC50 = 47.66 ± 2.51 µg/ml, ferric reducing antioxidant power (FRAP) potential (EC50 = 5.36 ± 0.77 µg/ml), superoxide(More)
Artemisia campestris (Asteraceae) is widely used in traditional medicine in Southern Tunisia as a decoction for its antivenom, anti-inflammatory, antirheumatic, and antimicrobial activities. A. campestris essential oil (ACEO) was obtained by hydrodistillation from the aerial parts, since it has beneficial and therapeutic effects. Deltamethrin is a synthetic(More)
Deltamethrin is a pesticide widely used as a synthetic pyrethroid. The aim of this study was undertaken to investigate the effects of deltamethrin to induce oxidative stress and changes in biochemical parameters, hepatotoxicity and genotoxicity in female rats following a short-term (30 days) oral exposure and attenuation of these effects by Allium sativum(More)
OBJECTIVES We evaluated the potential clinical relevance of malondialdehyde (MDA) and autoantibodies to copper oxidized low-density lipoprotein (CuOx-LDL) in type 2 diabetes occurrence. METHODS This cross-sectional study enrolled 69 normoglycemic subjects, 18 prediabetic patients and 108 type 2 diabetes patients. MDA concentration was assessed(More)
