Protective effect of 6-MFA, an interferon inducer and antiviral agent of fungal origin, was investigated against the neurotoxic effects induced by acrylamide in rats. Animals of 6-MFA (2.5, 5, 10 mg/100 gm, i.p.) pretreated plus acrylamide (ACR) group exhibited a reduction in development of hind limb paralysis which was 34, 25 and 20 (%) with increasing(More)
Acute thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) is a life-threatening disorder that has previously been described associated with various types of surgery. An association between total abdominal hysterectomy (TAH) and TTP has never been reported. Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura is classically characterized by thrombocytopenia, microangiopathic hemolytic(More)
Discussion Bevacizumab has proven effective as an adjunctive treatment for reducing the vascularity of membranes before diabetic vitrectomy. In our case, the intraoperative finding of a macular hole was unexpected. Contraction of the premacular membrane briskly devascularised by bevacizumab may have resulted in tangential forces on the retina causing(More)
Phacolytic glaucoma has traditionally been treated with intracapsular lens extraction to avoid any anaphylaxis. Various mechanisms have been described for the rise of intraocular pressure in these cases. The present study was undertaken to evaluate the response of extracapsular cataract extraction (ECCE) with posterior chamber intraocular lens implantation(More)
In the present communication, we describe acrylamide (ACR) induced immunotoxicity and its modulation by an interferon inducer, the 6th mycelial fraction acetone (6-MFA) of Aspergillus ochraceus ATCC 28706. ACR administration to rats produced a significant decrease in the weight of spleen (p < 0.001), thymus (p < 0.001) and mesenteric lymph nodes (p < 0.05).(More)
6MFA is a growth product of the fungus Aspergillus ochraceus (ATCC 28706) obtained by fermentation in stationary culture. It has both interferon inducing and antiviral properties, in vivo and in vitro, with a relatively high margin of safety (9, 17, 18). Ehrlich's ascites tumor bearing Swiss albino male mice were treated with 0.5 ml of acqueous preparation(More)
A single i.p. administration of an immunomodulatory agent 6-MFA (a biological response modifier and antiviral agent of fungal origin, 10 mg/100g b.wt.), on 5th day of repeated acrylamide (ACR, 50 mg/kg b.wt.) treatment significantly protected rats against its specific neurotoxic effects. Corpus striatal 3H-spiperone binding elevated (24%) while(More)
