OBJECTIVE Evidences from cell culture experiments suggest a link between cholesterol and nervous system disease. Statins may have neurotoxic or neuroprotective effects, but these effects remain controversial. Therefore, the present study was aimed to investigate the possible toxicity of statins on a neurite outgrowth in mouse neuroblastoma NB2a cell line.(More)
Oxidative stress plays an important role in the development of complications in diabetes mellitus. Antioxidant therapy has been thought to decrease oxidative stress. The objective of the present study was to explore the effects of melatonin (MLT) on oxidative stress in diabetic rat eye and brain tissue by using immunohistochemical methods. Diabetes was(More)
Statins are lipid-lowering drugs that are widely used for treating hyperlipidemia, especially in diabetic patients. The aim of our study was to explore the effects of atorvastatin on oxidative stress and apoptosis in the sciatic nerve due to hyperglycemia. Diabetes was induced by streptozotocin. Atorvastatin was given orally for two weeks beginning from the(More)
BACKGROUND One of the major concerns is a nephropathy in diabetes, which applies many different kinds of medicines. However, required level of the treatment of renal disease has not been achieved. AIM To investigate and compare the effect of the enalapril and the exenatide on diabetic nephropathy in rats developed diabetes by streptozosin. MATERIAL AND(More)
Abstract We investigated the cytotoxic, neurotoxic, apoptotic and antiproliferative effects of extracts from Petalonia fascia, Jania longifurca and Halimeda tuna on the MCF-7 breast cancer cell line. J. longifurca extracts were more toxic than those of P. fascia and H. tuna. The algal extracts showed significant toxic effects at different dilutions. The(More)
AIM Involvement of the peripheral and autonomic nervous systems is possibly the most frequent complication of diabetes. Important risk factors included hyperglycemia, dyslipidemia, hypertension, and smoking. Angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitor (ACE) inhibitors should be beneficial in all vascular beds, including neuropathy and retinopathy. In this study(More)
Abstract Hyperglycemia, hypertension, dyslipidemia, and inflammation have been proposed to account for the development of nephropathy in diabetic subjects. The beneficial effects of enalapril on diabetic nephropathy are known. However, the effects of trimetazidine (TMZ) are still unknown. We aimed at comparing the effects of the enalapril and TMZ treatment(More)
Antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) are teratogens and confer a risk of congenital malformation. The estimated prevalence of major congenital malformations such as cardiac defects, facial clefts, hypospadias, and neural tube defects in epileptic women is 4–10 %, which represents a two- to fourfold increase in pregnant women compared to the general population.(More)
