OBJECTIVE To investigate possible detrimental effects on bone tissue induced by ovariectomy and tamoxifen (TMX) using bone densitometry and histomorphologic analysis. STUDY DESIGN Twenty-four rats were allocated into 4 groups: group 1, intact normal rats (n = 6); group 2, ovariectomized rats (n = 6); group 3, normal female rats that received 1 mg/kg/day(More)
The distribution of mast cells (MCs) was studied in the lymphoid organs (thymus, bursa of Fabricius and spleen) of 0-, 7-, 21-, 30- and 120-day-old chickens, using light microscopic histochemical techniques. Tissues samples were obtained under deep anaesthesia from animals in five groups. Tissues were fixed in Mota's fixative (basic lead acetate) for 24 h(More)
El objetivo de este estudio fue evaluar la distribución de mastocitos en el ovario y el útero durante el ciclo estral de ratas. Se utilizaron cuarenta ratas Albino de Wistar hembras, de 10 a 12 semanas de edad. Se tomaron muestras de los tejidos del ovario y útero para luego ser fijadas en Mota por 48 horas y parafina, luego se cortaron secciones de 6 μm de(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze histomorphometric, densitometric and biochemical effects of melatonin on osteoporosis in ovariectomized rats. STUDY DESIGN Wistar rats were divided into 6 groups. Group C: control; Group I: bilateral ovariectomy (OVX); Group II: OVX + vehicle; Group III: OVX + 10 mg/kg/day melatonin (MLT); Group IV: OVX + 30 mg/kg/day MLT; Group V:(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the relation between nitric oxide synthases (calcium-independent iNOS and calcium-dependent eNOS) and apoptosis regulator proteins (anti-apoptotic Bcl-2, pro-apoptotic p53) of fetal rat brain in experimental intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) model via quantitative immunohistochemistry. Cortical zone of(More)
BACKGROUND Traditional medicines and health supplements have historically been used to treat many illnesses but most of them have not been evaluated objectively to prove their efficacy. We have been investigating the effects of royal jelly (RJ) supplements on acetic acid-induced colitis on the distribution of CD3(+), CD5(+), CD45(+) T-cell and CD68(+) cells(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy of a soluble absorbable silicon compound on healing of the Achilles tendon. METHODS The Achilles tendons of 21 Wistar albino rats were cut and repaired. A 0.01 ml organic silicon solution (silanol) was injected peri/intratendinously into the left leg of all rats and the same dose of saline into(More)
We carried out an experimental investigation of cartilage endplate vascularity of degenerated intervertebral discs produced by exogenous melatonin (MEL) treatment. Adult Swiss albino rats were divided into three groups: control, operated degeneration, and MEL treatment. There were five rats in each group and, using a posterior approach, cuts were made(More)
BACKGROUND CONTEXT Epidural fibrosis is a common adverse outcome of spinal surgery that can compress the dural sac and nerve root. Local hemostatic agents have many indications in numerous types of spinal surgery. As these agents may behave as foreign bodies, inducing inflammation and delaying regeneration, they could enhance the risk of epidural fibrosis.(More)
The vascular channels at the end-plate of the intervertebral disc are very important in maintaining a healthy disc. With age, a reduction of the nutrition of the avascular nucleus pulposus is inevitable. On the other hand the calcium channel antagonist nimodipine has been shown to have a positive effect on blood flow in the region of the vertebral(More)
