INTRODUCTION PDE5 inhibitors (PDE5inhs) have proven to be of great impact in the treatment of numerous human extra-sexual diseases and their chronic use may induce endothelial rehabilitation. This study aimed to assess the effects of PDE5inhs at chronic administration to explore the possible endothelial cyto-protective and thrombo-resistance effects. (More)
Glomerular filtration rate and/or creatinine are not accurate methods for renal failure prediction. This study tested homocysteine (Hcy) as a predictive and prognostic marker for end stage renal disease (ESRD). In total, 176 subjects were recruited and divided into: healthy normal group (108 subjects); mild-to-moderate impaired renal function group (21(More)
Bad sample designs and selection bias have plagued studies on schistosomiasis, and as a result some believe that schistosomiasis is too focal, making it difficult to draw reliable samples. The Epidemiology 1, 2, 3 (EPI 1, 2, 3) sample design, although complex, demonstrates that sampling theory is readily applicable to epidemiologic studies of(More)
The effect of Phoxim (Volaton) at two dosage levels (23 and 46 mg/kg b.wt.) on male reproduction tissues and their residues in rats were studied. The tested doses were given orally to male rats for 60 consecutive days. Sex organs weight analysis, semen picture, testosterone and cholinestrase enzyme (ChE) levels, histochemistry, histopathological changes and(More)
Trichomoniasis vaginalis is one of the common parasitic infection in females. The present results showed that infertile women with T. vaginalis with or without pathogenic microorganisms have decreased C3 & C4, increased IgA level in vaginal discharge and increased serum prolactin. So. T. vaginalis is incriminated as one of the causes of their infertility.
