Rheumatoid arthritis is an inflammatory, autoimmune disease where oxidative stress has been proposed to contribute to the joint tissue damage. To establish whether measurement of the redox status in blood mirrors the oxidant status at sites of inflammation in patients with rheumatoid arthritis, we concomitantly examined their oxidant status by(More)
We have demonstrated that therapeutic administration of L-arginine (L-arg) (120 mg/kg) at +2 h of whole body hyperthermia (WBH) could rescue the mice from heatstroke-induced death. Studies were undertaken to elucidate the role of L-arg in the immunomodulation of the heat-stressed mice. Administration of L-arginine (L-arg), (120 mg/kg, i.p.), at +2 h of WBH,(More)
Resveratrol showed biphasic activity in indomethacin-induced gastric ulcerated mice. A protective effect at a lower dose (2 mg kg(-1)) and a contraindicative effect at a higher dose of Resveratrol (10 mg kg(-1)) were observed. This phenomenon was possibly controlled by a COX-1 and eNOS balance, which ultimately maintained angiogenesis in Resveratrol-treated(More)
National Governments are realizing the importance of new e-infrastructures to enable scientific progress and enhance research competitiveness. Making e-infrastructures available to the research community is crucial and is important to researchers and development teams in India. C-DAC launched the Indian National Grid Computing Initiative-GARUDA with the(More)
Mutations in the CLN3 gene are responsible for the neurodegenerative disorder Batten disease; however, the molecular basis of this disease remains unknown. In studying a mouse model for Batten disease, we report the presence of an autoantibody to glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD65) in cln3-knockout mice serum that associates with brain tissue but is not(More)
Patients and a mouse model of Batten disease, the juvenile form of neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis (JNCL), raise autoantibodies against GAD65 and other brain-directed antigens. Here we investigate the adaptive component of the neuroimmune response. Cln3(-/-) mice have autoantibodies to GAD65 in their cerebrospinal fluid and elevated levels of brain bound(More)
Management of the gastric toxicity of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) remains a crucial problem because the commercially available drugs have side effects and are often expensive. Therefore, we examined the potential of the green tea-derived polyphenol epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) to treat indomethacin-induced stomach ulcers in mice.(More)
The mechanism of indomethacin-induced gastric ulcer healing by ellagic acid (EA) in experimental mice model is described in our study. Ulcer index (UI) and myeloperoxidase (MPO) activity of the stomach tissues showed maximum ulceration on the third day after indomethacin (18 mg/kg, single dose) administration. Preliminary observation of UI and MPO activity(More)
BACKGROUND The present study was undertaken to evaluate the potential of the rhizomes of the Indian medicinal plant, Picrorhiza kurroa in healing indomethacin-induced acute stomach ulceration in mice and examine its capacity to modulate oxidative stress and the levels of prostaglandin (PGE2) and EGF during the process. METHODS Male swiss albino mice,(More)
BACKGROUND Given that lung cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths with low survival rates, the project was aimed to formulate an efficient drug with minimum side effects, and rationalize its action mechanistically. METHODS Mitochondria deficient cells, shRNA-mediated BCL2 and ATM depleted cells and pharmacological inhibition of(More)
