Toxic outcome of chemical therapeutics as well as multidrug resistance are two serious phenomena for their inacceptance in cancer chemotherapy. Antioxidants like curcumin (Cur) have gained immense importance for their excellent anticarcinogenic activities and minimum toxic manifestations in biological system. However, Cur is lipophilic and thus following(More)
Cerebral stroke is the leading cause of death and permanent disability among elderly people. In both humans and animals, cerebral ischemia damages the nerve cells in vulnerable regions of the brain, viz., hippocampus, cerebral cortex, cerebellum, and hypothalamus. The present study was conducted to evaluate the therapeutic efficacy of nanoencapsulated(More)
Reactive oxygen species e.g. O(2)(*-), H(2)O(2) and *OH generated by the induction of oxidative stress exert a potential threat on the activity of endogenous antioxidant enzymes and substantially influence the aging process and age-dependant neuropathology. Chemical antioxidant is almost ineffective in protecting neuronal cells from oxidative damage as(More)
Oxidative stress a major cause of fluoride induced toxicity and mitochondrial impairment in common in experimental rats during chronic exposure of fluoride. Attempts have been made in the present experiment to diminish oxidative damage, combined therapy with (+)-catechin hydrate (an antioxidant) and sodium meta borate (chelator) were used. Fluoride(More)
Reactive oxygen species (O2(*-), OH(-), H2O2) are known to play an important role in tumor initiation in hepatocarcinoma. Hepatocarcinoma was developed in the Swiss Albino rats by administration three doses of diethylnitrosamine (DEN) (200 mg/kg b. wt.) (i.p.) at 15 days interval. Quercetin (QC), herbal polyphenolic compound, is a potent anticancer drug.(More)
The objective of this study was to investigate the pattern of age-associated oxidative post-translational modifications in the skeletal muscles of a mammalian species and to address whether the modifications result in the loss of function of the oxidatively modified protein(s). Accordingly, proteins in the mitochondrial matrix of the hind limb of(More)
BACKGROUND Cyclooxygenase-2 (Cox-2) is frequently overexpressed in cervical carcinoma, but little is known about its altered serum concentration. Hence, this study evaluates clinical utility of cellular and serum level of Cox-2 enzyme in cervical cancer. METHODS The expression of Cox-2 was evaluated in cervical tissues and serum samples collected from(More)
This paper presents a new algorithm for local alignment search which has less computational complexity than the Smith-Waterman algorithm. Increasing the accuracy of sequence matching and reducing computational complexity is a grand challenge to bioinformatics computing. The proposed Algorithm is a more competent local alignment searching Algorithm since it(More)
AIMS This study was performed to evaluate the therapeutic efficacy of nanocapsulated flavonoidal quercetin (QC) in combating arsenic-induced reactive oxygen species (ROS)-mediated oxidative damage in hepatocytes and brain cells in a rat model. MAIN METHODS Hepatic and neuronal cell damage in rats was made by a single injection (sc) of sodium arsenite(More)
Arsenic, the environmental toxicant causes oxidative damage to liver and produces hepatic fibrosis. The theme of our study was to evaluate the therapeutic efficacy of liposomal and nanocapsulated herbal polyphenolic antioxidant quercetin (QC) in combating arsenic induced hepatic oxidative stress, fibrosis associated upregulation of its gene expression and(More)
