Cisplatin is chemotherapeutic drug used in treatment of malignancies. However, its clinical utility is limited by nephrotoxicity. The purpose of present study is to investigate biochemical and molecular effects of alpha lipoic acid (ALA) to protect against cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity in mice. Cisplatin (12 mg/kg/day) was administered i.p. for 4 days.(More)
Oxidant-antioxidant imbalance plays an important role in repeated cycles of airway inflammation observed in asthma. It is when reactive oxygen species (ROS) overwhelm antioxidant defenses that a severe inflammatory state becomes apparent and may impact vasculature. Several studies have shown an association between airway inflammation and cardiovascular(More)
Total of 6840 clinical samples were collected from King Fahd Hospital at Medina, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). Clinical samples were screened for Proteus spp. It is found that Proteus spp isolates representing about 3% of all positive samples isolated from different clinical sources. Males were found to be more vulnerable than females in acquiring Proteus(More)

This study was undertaken to assess the possible modulatory effects and mechanisms of meloxicam, a cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitor, on the antitumor activity and cardiotoxicity of doxorubicin in a mice model of mammary carcinoma. Solid tumor mass was developed in female albino mice using Ehrlich carcinoma cells. Forty mice-bearing tumor were divided randomly(More)
CONTEXT Tacrolimus (TAC), a calcineurin inhibitor, is commonly used as an immunosuppressive agent in organ transplantation, but its clinical use may be limited due to cardiotoxicity. Olmesartan (OLM; angiotensin receptor blocker) and aliskiren (ALK; renin inhibitor) may attenuate cardiotoxicity induced by TAC by inhibition of renin-angiotensin aldosterone(More)
Oxidants are generated in asthmatic airways due to infiltration of inflammatory leukocytes and resident cells in the lung. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) such as hydrogen peroxide and superoxide radical may leak into systemic circulation when generated in uncontrolled manner and may impact vasculature. Our previous studies have shown an association between(More)
The aim of the present research is to investigate the effect of harvest date on the composition of flaxseed. Samples were collected at regular intervals from 7 to 56 days after flowering (DAF) and analyzed for phospholipid composition, storage protein content and chemical properties. Phospholipid (PL) percentage of the total lipid decreased from 32.72% on(More)
In continuation of our previous work, a novel series of steroid derivatives were synthesized and their androgen receptor (AR) antagonist activities and in vivo antiandrogenic properties were evaluated. Twenty-one heterocyclic derivatives containing a cyanopyrane ring fused to a steroidal moiety were conveniently synthesized and screened for their(More)
A new series of poly fused pyrazolothienopyrimidine derivatives (2-14) were synthesized and their anti-parkinsonism, hypoglycemic and anti-microbial activities were evaluated. Some of the newly synthesized compounds exhibited better pharmacological and biological activities than the reference controls with low concentrations. The structures of newly(More)
