In the present work we have studied the B. cenocepacia protein BCAL2958, a member of the OmpA-like family of proteins, demonstrated as highly(More)
The present study aims to evaluate the role of Curcuma longa (turmeric) methanolic extract against colon cancer-induced in rats. Forty male rats were classified into 5 groups as follows: Group (1) control. Groups from (2) to (5) intrarectally injected with N-methylnitrosourea in a dose of 2 mg dissolved in 0.5 ml water/rat three times weekly for five weeks(More)
The primary goal of the present study aimed to evaluate the prophylactic effect of Hypericum Perforatum L. extract on memory dysfunction induced by scopolamine in adult male albino rats (Rattus norvegicus Berkenout). Rats administered daily P.O Hypericum Perforatum L. extract (350 mg/kg) for two, four, eight weeks and the group of rats at the end of each(More)
