A 51-year-old man developed a large retroperitoneal tumor with liver and lymph node metastases; there was no radiological evidence of pancreatic involvement. Despite the progression of disease, results of laboratory tests, notably serum amylase, were normal except for minor increases in aspartate aminotransferase and gamma-glutamyltransferase and a marked(More)
Spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) were fed 6 different diets. The baseline diet (I) derived equal calories from sucrose, proteins, and fats. Three other diets (II, III, VI) derived the majority of calories from refined CHO, sucrose or glucose, with decreases in calories from proteins or fats. The last two diets (IV, V) were relatively low in sucrose(More)
OBJECTIVE The present study describes the effect of nebivolol (NBV) either alone or in combination with lamotrigine (LTG) using increasing current electroshock seizures (ICES) model in mice. MATERIALS AND METHODS Male albino mice of Swiss strain each weighing 18-30 g were used. Lamotrigine (Lamitor tablets, Torrent; 1.5 and 3.0 mg/kg) and NBV (Nebicard(More)
The present study was performed to investigate whether or not carvedilol (a beta-adrenoreceptor antagonist) potentiates the anticonvulsive activity of gabapentin against ICES (Increasing current electroshock) and PTZ (Pentylenetetrazole) induced seizures in mice. Further the effect of combination of both the drugs on spatial working memory and locomotor(More)
Neuropathic pain is a severe and unbearable condition which arises due to activation of peripheral nociceptors after tissue damage, neuropathic pain is caused from anomalous physiology of central or peripheral nervous system and it may not be related to the ongoing tissue damage or inflammation. Involvement of oxidative damage has been reported in the(More)
Elevated levels of a specific renal growth factor, renotropin, have been associated with spontaneous hypertension. To examine this association more closely, we have undertaken the development of a better assay system to characterize and purify renotropin. Sera from rabbits prior to operation (control) and at a specified time after unilateral nephrectomy(More)
