The present review is intended to focus on naturally occurring cytoprotective agents such as resveratrol (trans-3,4',5-trihydroxystilbene) and other related compounds, probably with similar molecular mechanisms of action and high capacity to find applications in medical fields. Several physiological aspects have been ascribed to resveratrol and similar(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate potential hepatoprotective capabilities of quercetin in relation to its modulation of the HO-1 and NOS-2 activities in an experimental model of fulminant liver failure. Liver insult was induced by in vivo administration of D-galactosamine (d-GalN, 400 mg/kg, i.p.) and lipopolysaccharide (LPS, 10 μg/kg, i.p.). The(More)
Oxidative stress and apoptosis are proposed mechanisms of cellular injury in studies of xenobiotic hepatotoxicity. This study is focused on addressing the mutual relationship and early signals of these mechanisms in the D-galactosamine and lipopolysaccharide (D-GalN/LPS) hepatotoxicity model, with the help of standard liver function and biochemistry tests,(More)
This work studied a relationship between HO-1/CO system and lipid peroxidation with consequent effects on liver functions and NOS-2. We focused on curcumin pretreatment in rat toxic model of d-galactosamine and lipopolysaccharide. Hepatocyte viability, lipid peroxidation, antioxidant status, ALT and AST were evaluated. HO-1 and NOS-2 expressions and(More)
