Mercury poisoning cases have been reported in many parts of the world, resulting in many deaths every year. Mercury compounds are classified in different chemical types such as elemental, inorganic and organic forms. Long term exposure to mercury compounds from different sources e.g. water, food, soil and air lead to toxic effects on cardiovascular,(More)
Some studies showed that piperine (the alkaloid of piper nigrum) can change the activities of microsomal enzymes. Midazolam concentration is applied as a probe to determine the CYP3A enzyme activity. This study was done to determine piperine pretreatment role on midazolam plasma concentration. Twenty healthy volunteers (14 men and 6 women) received oral(More)
BACKGROUND Treatment of chronic constipation is creating one of the major problems for doctors and patients. Pyridostigmine increases the gastrointestinal motility through the effects on cholinesterase. It seems that this mechanism can reduce chronic constipation. The aim of this study was to compare the effects of pyridostigmine and bisacodyl on chronic(More)
Background and Objective. Bisphenol A (BPA) is an abundantly used xenoestrogenic chemical which may cause various disorders in body. In the present study, we sought to investigate the effects of various doses of BPA on hepatic oxidative stress-related gene expression in rats. Methods. Male Wistar rats weighing 150-200 g were used in this study. Three doses(More)
INTRODUCTION Lamotrigine (LTG) is an antiepileptic drug that inhibits the release of glutamate by blocking sodium channels. The present study was conducted to evaluate the effect of LTG in different stages of memory using a passive avoidance learning task in mice. METHODS Male albino mice in the weight range 20-25g were used. They were divided into four(More)
BACKGROUND Bisphenol A (BPA) and nonylphenol (NP) have harmful effects on the endocrine system of humans and animals. AIM We sought to investigate the effect of three doses of BPA and NP on the reproductive parameters of rats. MATERIALS AND METHODS Adult Wistar male rats weighing 150-200 g were used for a consecutive 35-day study. BPA and NP were given(More)
INTRODUCTION Bisphenol A (BPA) and Nonylphenol (NP) have estrogen-like activity, and some of their adverse biological effects have been demonstrated. This study was designed to determine the association of plasma and tissue concentrations of BPA and NP and changes in the parameters of the reproductive system in rats. METHODS Male Wistar rats were(More)
BACKGROUND Azithromycin (AZM) is used in periodontal infections. The present study compared gingival crevicular fluid concentration of azithromycin of two pharmaceutical companies through the HPLC method. METHODS Two groups (n=15) of healthy volunteers participated in this study. The first group received an imported azithromycin (ImAZM) tablet (250 mg,(More)
BACKGROUND Postendodontic pain (PEP) has always been a major problem for patients and dentists and NSAIDs are being used to relieve PEP and it is supposed that some benzodiazepines may potentiate facilitate the analgesic effects of the NSAIDs. This study was conducted to evaluate the effect of alprazolam on the analgesic effect of ibuprofen in PEP(More)
In this research, an orthogonal array design (OAD), OA9 was exploited as a chemometric experimental method for the cleaning of chromium surfaces contamination by using an electrochemical cleaner solution that is established upon the redox reaction principle. The influence of cleaning procedure on the removal of lead fouling layer has been investigated by(More)
