Medicinal herb preparations prescribed for specific treatment purposes were purchased from markets and were analyzed by instrumental neutron activation analysis with k0 standardization. Then, 500-700 mg of each sample was pelletized under a pressure of six tones and irradiated together with monitors for alpha and neutron flux ratio determinations for about(More)
To determine the effect of diabetes mellitus on cerebral microvessel protein composition, post translational modification of proteins with glucose and malondialdehyde (MDA) was determined and the abundant protein species found in cerebral microvessels isolated from control and streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats were studied. Two dimensional gel(More)
Previous studies have shown that lipid peroxidative processes may play a role in disease pathogenesis in lupus-prone MRL/lpr mice. Studies were thus performed to determine if an immune response against malondialdehyde (MDA), a highly reactive byproduct of lipid peroxidation, was present in these mice. By using MDA-modified mouse serum albumin (MSA) as(More)
Infection by LP-BM5 murine leukemia virus (MuLV) suppressed significantly the percentage of peripheral blood cells showing surface markers for macrophages, lymphocytes and activated lymphoid cells. Chronic administration of a 7% (36% calories) ethanol diet or injection of 1.9 mg/mouse/day of morphine for a 7 day period were followed by 3 week periods of(More)
Infection by LP-BM5 murine leukemia virus (MuLV) produces an AIDS-like condition in mice. The viral infection suppressed the percentage of peripheral blood cells showing surface markers for macrophages, activated macrophages, T lymphocytes and activated lymphoid cells. High dietary vitamin A (retinyl palmitate) caused increased numbers of activated(More)
The immunomodulatory effects of morphine and the active components of marijuana, particularly tetrahydrocannabinol, on various aspects of the host immune parameters include alterations in humoral, cell-mediated and innate immunity. Most studies have shown immunosuppressive effects due to use of these abused substances, although there are reports that they(More)
One of the possible mechanisms of diabetes-related tissue damage is modification of various proteins via lipid peroxidation byproducts such as malondialdehyde (MDA). To determine the extent of MDA derivatization of plasma proteins, Western blots were carried out using anti-MDA antisera to study plasma proteins in control and streptozotocin (STZ)-induced(More)
This paper is aimed at developing a model equation that can predict the mobility of heavy metal in the soil contaminated with sewage sludge. The model equation was developed and represented by the expression below x d b L 1 t v k x 1 D C e e ρ   +   θ   = −. The developed equation was then simulated using MathCAD 2000 professional software. The(More)
