To characterize the kidney in a high-fat-induced obesity model, we examined the renal structure of adult Sprague-Dawley rats fed a control diet or a high-fat diet for 3 months. Ten adult female Sprague-Dawley rats were fed a diet consisting highly of fat (30%) for a period of 3 months. Ten control rats were maintained with standard rat chow. All animals(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine if there is an association between fatty diet induced obesity and spleen enlargement by means of Cavalieri principle, unbiased stereological method and light microscopic examination. METHODS In this study, we used 16 adult female Sprague Dawley rats, weighing between 150-200 g. All animals were obtained from the Ataturk University(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the relationship between high-fat diet induced obesity and hepatomegaly, and to investigate whether obesity, or hepatomegaly, or both are related to gender. METHODS This study was performed in 2003 at Ataturk University, Erzurum Turkey. Ten adult Sprague Dawley rats (5 male, 5 female) were fed with a diet that constituted highly of(More)

The aim of this study is to test the glomerular and other quantitative parameters of kidneys of anencephalic fetuses and comparing those to "normal" fetuses. In this study, 20 kidneys of human fetuses (5 boys and 5 girls of anencephalic fetus, and 5 boys and 5 girls of normal fetus), at gestational ages of 25-30 weeks, were examined. This study is based on(More)
In the present work, we investigated the effect of chronic haloperidol administration on the number of striatal neurons in guinea pigs. For this purpose, adult male guinea pigs were given daily injections of 1, 2 or 3 mg/kg of haloperidol for 6 weeks. After treatment, the animals were anesthetized via brief inhalation of ether, the brains were removed and(More)
In this study, we investigated the morphometric and histological alterations of the aorta, brachial, and femoral arteries in 4- and 20-week-old rats that were prenatally exposed to diclofenac sodium (DS). For this purpose, pregnant rats were divided into three groups: control, saline injected, and drug treated. Beginning from day 5 after mating through day(More)
