Epileptic patients exhibited variably altered status of trace elements, electrolytes, and free radical scavenging enzyme activities. We investigated the effect of epilepsy and long-term antiepileptic drug therapy on the serum level of some trace elements (zinc, selenium, and copper), electrolytes (calcium, magnesium, sodium, and potassium), and antioxidants(More)
It has been proposed that nephrotic syndrome is a consequence of an imbalance between oxidant/antioxidant statuses. The present study aimed to assess oxidant and antioxidant status in relation to dyslipidemia in children during remission and relapse phases of steroid sensitive nephrotic syndrome (SSNS). The study dealt with 40 children diagnosed as SSNS.(More)
In developed countries, prostate cancer is the third most common cause of death from cancer in men. Unfortunately, whilst accumulating clinical data have suggested that taxanes may prolong the survival in a subset of men with prostate carcinoma, the dose and duration of administration of these drugs are limited by their significant systemic toxicities due(More)
OBJECTIVES (i) To examine the role of apoptosis in the pathogenesis of DNA damage in semen from infertile men. (ii) To assess the effects of smoking on apoptotic markers and seminal parameters among infertile men. (iii) To assess the correlation of apoptosis with conventional semen parameters. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study was carried out on 70 men with(More)
We have developed a novel albumin-binding prodrug of doxorubicin that incorporates p-aminobenzyloxycarbonyl (PABC) as a 1,6 self-immolative spacer in addition to the heptapeptide, Arg-Ser-Ser-Tyr-Tyr-Ser-Leu, as a substrate for the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) that is overexpressed in prostate carcinoma and represents a molecular target for selectively(More)
BACKGROUND Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), platelet derived endothelial cell growth factor/thymidine phosphorylase (PD-ECGF/TP) and leptin are known as potent angiogenic factors The objective of the study was to evaluate these angiogenic factors VEGF, PD-ECGF/TP and leptin in children with congenital heart disease (CHD) and the factors that lead(More)
