INTRODUCTION Acrylamide is very toxic to various organs and associated with significant increase of oxidative stress and depletion of antioxidants. Alpha-lipoic acid enhances cellular antioxidant defense capacity, thereby protecting cells from oxidative stress. AIM OF THE STUDY This study aimed to evaluate the protective role of alpha-lipoic acid on the(More)
Azathioprine (Aza) is an important drug commonly used in the therapy of autoimmune system disorders. It induces hepatotoxicity and hazard effects that restrict its use. The effects of administration of grape seed extract and folic acid on Aza toxicity by gavage (simultaneously) daily for 4 weeks were studied by determining the changes in some hematological(More)

As a vasodilator with good hemodynamic effects, sildenafil has been successfully used in the treatment of patients with pulmonary hypertension and cardiovascular diseases. By selectively inhibiting phosphodiestrase type 5 (PDE-5) and thus effectively reducing the breakdown of c GMP, sildenafil administration can markedly improve the erectile dysfunction.(More)
A pot experiment was conducted to determine the influence of three of inoculum levels (1000, 2000 and 3000 J2 pot(-1)) of Meloidogyne javanica on nematode reproduction and host response of peanut plant cv. Giza 4 under greenhouse conditions at 30 +/- 5 degrees C. In general, nematode reproduction and host damage were both affected by the initial inoculum(More)
