The gastric cytoprotective properties of natural honey (monofloral and polyfloral specimens) and of a glucose-fructose-sucrose-maltose mixture (GFSM) was evaluated in the rat using absolute ethanol, indomethacin and acidified acetylsalicylic acid (ASA-HCl) as necrotising agents. Prior gastric administration of honey (2.5 g/kg) to animals induced a net(More)
The gastroprotective effects of 70% acetone extracts of Quercus suber and Quercus coccifera leaves and of tannins (pedunculagin, castalagin, phillyraeoidin A, and acutissimin B) purified from these extracts were examined in the mouse using the ethanol-induced gastric ulcer model. Both extracts (25, 50, and 100 mg/kg), given orally, prevented the formation(More)
Three new hydrolyzable tannins, cocciferins D(1) (1), D(2) (2), and T(1) (4), were isolated from the leaves of Quercus coccifera. Cocciferin D(2) (2) and two additional new tannins, cocciferins D(3) (3) and T(2) (5), were also obtained from the leaves of Quercus suber. Their oligomeric structures were elucidated on the basis of spectroscopic methods and(More)
OBJECTIVE To search whether xanthine oxido-reductase (XOR) present in the synovium is also liberated, to determine its activity in synovial fluid and to establish a possible relationship between XOR levels in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and non-RA patients. METHODS This study was carried out in the Laboratory of Immunology, University Ferhat Abbas, Setif,(More)
Chronic and acute ingestion of fluoride may lead to both structural and functional alterations of the gastric mucosa. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of sodium fluoride on gastric secretion and mucosal barrier. Filling the rat stomach for 1 h with sodium fluoride (5 and 20 mmol/L) induced an increase in fluid, fucose and galactose(More)
The gastroprotective effect of tannic acid and the aqueous extract of Quercus ilex L. root bark, Punica granatum L. fruit peel and Artemisia herba-alba Asso leaves was investigated in the rat against ethanol-induced damage. Tannic acid, Q. ilex and P. granatum extracts gave 100% precipitation of ovine haemoglobin in vitro, whereas A. herba-alba extract was(More)
OBJECTIVE To study anti-bovine milk xanthine oxidoreductase XOR antibody levels in synovial fluid as well as in serum of patients suffering from rheumatoid affections to assess a possible correlation between antibody titres and severity of disease. METHODS Sera and synovial fluids were collected from volunteer donors at Setif University Hospital, Setif,(More)
The cytoprotective properties of various natural honey specimens and of a glucose-fructose-sucrose-maltose mixture (GFSM) against gastric ethanol-induced lesions have been evaluated in rats. GFSM mixture and honey (2.5 g kg-1) were given orally 30 min before administration of 100% ethanol (5 ml kg-1) for a further 15-min period. Animal pretreatment with(More)
The antioxidative activities of subfractions; methanol (CE), chloroform (CHE) and ethyl acetate (EAE) of Teucrium polium extracts (TPE) were investigated. HPLC analysis of the plant revealed the existence of procyanidins B1 and B2, gallic acid, catechin and epicatechin. All the extracts showed inhibitory properties on xanthine oxidase, with IC50 ranging(More)
