BACKGROUND Aging is a biological phenomenon that involves an increase of oxidative stress associated with gradual degradation of the structure and function of the retina. Gender differences and subsequent deterioration of retinal cell layers is an interesting topic, especially because there is no published work concerning it. METHODS One hundred and(More)
Offspring Wistar albino rats maternally ingested orally 1g/kg. body weight aspartame or monosodium glutamate or galactose throughout gestation and till 21 days post-partum. The lens of offspring were investigated at 1,7,14 and 21 days-postnatal, meanwhile mothers were examined only at the end of experiment. Scanning electron microscopy and biochemical(More)

Scanning electron microscopic investigation of lingual mucosa of the anterior part of chamaeleon tongue revealed(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of diabetes and/or hypercholesterolemia on skin development during in utero life at 15, 17 & 19 days old. METHODS Sixty pregnant female albino Wistar rats were arranged into three groups: control, diabetic (single i.p. 60 mg streptozotocin/kg B.wt) and hypercholesterolemic (diet supplement 3% cholesterol 6 week prior(More)
Aging is a biological phenomenon that involves an increase of oxidative stress associated with gradual degradation of the structure and function of the optic nerve. Gender differences and subsequent deterioration of optic nerve are an interesting topic, especially because there is little published work concerning it. One hundred male and female Wistar(More)
Aging is a biological phenomenon that involves gradual degradation of the structure and function of the retina and optic nerve. To our knowledge, little is known about the aging-related ocular cell loss in avian (Falco tinnunculus) and reptilian species (Uromastyx aegyptia). A selected 90 animals of pup, middle, and old age U. aegyptia (reptilian) and F.(More)
Objective: Lipoaspiration of human breast fats are important source of adipocyte stem cells (hAMSCs) which play a great role in regenerative medicine. The present study illustrates its capability of its transformation and characterization of adipocyte, osteogenic or chondrogenic cells. Methods and results: The hAMSCs were positive for CD13, CD29, CD105 and(More)
