Resveratrol is a polyphenol that plays a potentially important role in many disorders and has been studied in different diseases. The research on this chemical started through the "French paradox," which describes improved cardiovascular outcomes despite a high-fat diet in French people. Since then, resveratrol has been broadly studied and shown to have(More)
BACKGROUND Aneurysm rupture results in subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) with subsequent vasospasm in the cerebral and cerebellar major arteries. In recent years, there has been increasing evidence that hypercholesterolemia plays a role in the pathology of SAH. It is known that hypercholesterolemia is one of the major risk factors for the development of(More)
Redox mediated signaling mechanisms play crucial roles in the pathogenesis of several cardiovascular diseases. Atherosclerosis is one of the most important disorders induced mainly by hypercholesterolemia. Oxidation products and related signaling mechanisms are found within the characteristic biomarkers of atherosclerosis. Several studies have shown that(More)
Hypercholesterolemia is a major risk factor for age-related diseases such as atherosclerosis and Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Changes in human plasma cholesterol levels results from the interaction between multiple genetic and environmental factors. The accumulation of excess cholesterol in blood vessels leads to atherosclerosis. Many studies on this field(More)
Atherosclerosis and its complications are major causes of death all over the world. One of the major risks of atherosclerosis is hypercholesterolemia. During atherosclerosis, oxidized low density lipoprotein (oxLDL) regulates CD36-mediated activation of c-jun amino terminal kinase-1 (JNK1) and modulates matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) induction which(More)
Nrf2 pathway has been known to be protective against cancer progression however recent studies have revealed that the antioxidant activity of Nrf2 contributes to chemotherapy resistance. For many years, hyperthermia has been used as an additional therapy to increase the efficiency of chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Besides the positive effects of(More)
BACKGROUND To identify the role of the hypercholesterolemia as a starting factor in discovertebral degeneration that ultimately causes lower back pain, and investigate the role of Vitamin E in this process. METHODS The rabbits (n = 32) were divided into two broad experimental groups: A control group, and a hypercholesterolemia group, namely cholesterol,(More)
Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is considered to be a common health problem since the incidence of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) has increased in recent years. Disturbed hepatic cholesterol homeostasis and free cholesterol accumulation in liver results in increased oxidative stress leading to the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress. Activated(More)
