It is now firmly established that TSH may influence the physiology and patho-physiology of bone by activating osteoblasts and inhibiting osteoclast activity resulting in relative osteoprotection. Whether this influence is directly exerted by pituitary-derived TSH in vivo is less certain, because we have previously reported that the suppression of pituitary(More)
The present study was designed to investigate the phytochemical screening, the free radical scavenging activity and to determine the total phenolic content of methanolic extract and different solvent soluble fractions of Averrhoa bilimbi Linn. (Oxalidiaceae) fruits. The free radical scavenging activity was evaluated by analyzing the bleaching rate of(More)
New substrates of potential benefit to critically ill patients receiving traditional nutritional support have been suggested to meet organ or tissue specific needs. The addition of an anabolic stimulus during nutritional support therefore appears to be a reasonable adjunct to augment protein synthesis. The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate the(More)
Enhanced protein mobilization and synthesis are common responses to severe trauma. The hypothesis that extracellular polyamine levels could be valid biomarkers for these responses has been investigated. The three polyamines, spermidine, spermine and their precursor putrescine are directly involved in cell growth/death kinetics through regulation of protein(More)
BACKGROUND The addition of an anabolic stimulant during intensive nutrition therapy in trauma patients seems to be a reasonable adjuvant for minimizing muscle-mass erosion. The plasma free amino acid pattern is the mirror of the net amino acid metabolism, and we have measured the progressive changes resulting from recombinant human growth hormone therapy in(More)
The crude methanolic extract of Averrhoa bilimbi Linn. (Oxalidiaceae) fruits and its different fractions have been investigated for the evaluation of in vitro cytotoxic potential. The dried and powder fruits were extracted with methanol at room temperature and the concentrated methanolic extract was fractionated by the modified Kupchan partitioning method(More)
The concentration of free glutamine in skeletal muscle decreases characteristically after surgical trauma. In animal studies a correlation between muscle protein synthesis and the glutamine concentration is reported. For pharmaceutical reasons, commercially available amino acid solutions do not contain glutamine. Therefore, at present, postoperative total(More)
Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) is the most common malignancy referred to our institute which is the largest tertiary referral cancer centre in Saudi Arabia, The proportion of follicular low grade NHL appears to be extremely small in this population (<5% of all NHL). To date, there is no data available regarding any correlation between bcl-2 gene rearrangement(More)
