BACKGROUND Pre-diabetes is a disturbing trend in the population, who are at risk of developing type-two diabetes. The aim of this study was to determine the effects use of Aloe vera in different doses on glucose and lipid profile in pre-diabetic subjects. METHODS This study was a double blind randomized controlled trial (72 subjects) with pre-diabetes(More)
OBJECTIVE Exposure to normobaric hyperoxia protects the heart against ischemia-reperfusion injury ex vivo. In the present study, we investigated the effect of the early and late phase of hyperoxia on in vivo myocardial infarction and apoptosis. METHODS Rats were exposed to room air preoxygenation (O(2)≥ 95%) followed by regional ischemia (30 min) and 0,(More)
The research literature suggests that oxidative stress and pro-inflammatory factors influence neurotrophins in vitro. However, there is insufficient information about their effects on exercise training conditions, especially during high intensity trainings. This study aimed to compare the effects of 6weeks of high intensity interval and continuous training(More)
BACKGROUND Pre-exposure to hyperoxic gas (>or= 95%) has been shown to protect the heart and central nervous system from ischemia-reperfusion injury. In the present study, we investigated whether oxygen pretreatment induces delayed renal protection in rats. The possible role of some renal antioxidant agents was also investigated. MATERIALS AND METHODS(More)
This study was carried out to determine the effects of cupping on hemodynamic parameters, arrhythmias and infarct size (IS) after myocardial ischemic reperfusion injury in male rats. Rats were randomly subjected to dry or wet cupping. While dry cupping simply involved stimulation of the skin by suction, in wet cupping, scarification of the back skin was(More)
UNLABELLED HYPOTHESIS/INTRODUCTION: Our aim was to investigate whether a non-hypotensive dose of ramiprilat and losartan has myocardial protective effects during myocardial ischemia/reperfusion in vivo. MATERIALS AND METHODS Three groups of rats were given 10 mg/kg per day of losartan for one (L-1W), four (L-4W) or 10 (L-10W) weeks. Another three groups(More)
Introduction: Inhibition of renin angiotensin system represents an important approach in the management of cardiovascular diseases. The aim of this study was to explore the effects of pretreatment with non-hypotensive dose of angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor, ramiprilat and angiotensin type 1 (AT1) receptor blocker, losartan on myocardial(More)
