The prevalence of obesity has been rising alarmingly and it has now become a global concern causing an enormous economic burden on the health care system. Obesity is generally linked to complications in lipid metabolism and oxidative stress. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of rosuvastatin (10 mg/kg, po) on obesity-induced(More)
The present study was aimed to find out the protective effect of bezafibrate on lipid peroxidation (LPO), activities of both enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidants and histopathological examination of pancreas in streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic rats. Experimental diabetes was induced by a single dose of STZ (60mg/kg, i.p.) injection. The oxidative(More)
OBJECTIVES The present study was designed to evaluate the cardioprotective potential of edaravone on oxidative stress, anti-apoptotic, anti-inflammatory and ultrastructure findings in isoproterenol (ISO) induced myocardial infarction (MI) in rats. METHODS Rats were pretreated with edaravone (1, 3, 10 mg/kg body weight-1 day-1) intraperitoneally. MI was(More)
A series of 1,3-benzothiazol-2-yl semicarbazones (1-15) were prepared in satisfactory yield and evaluated for their anticonvulsant, neurotoxicity and other toxicity studies. All the synthesized compounds were in good agreement with elemental and spectral data. Majority of the compounds were active in MES screen. Selected compounds were checked for their(More)
Various N-(5-chloro-6-substituted-benzothiazol-2-yl)-N'-(substituted phenyl)-[1,3,4]thiadiazole-2,5-diamines (5a-t) were designed and synthesized starting from substituted acetophenones. Structures of all the compounds were confirmed on the basis of spectral and elemental analyses. All the newly synthesized compounds were screened for their anticonvulsant(More)
The Euphorbia hirta ethanolic extract (EH A001) was found to possess a prominent anti-anaphylactic activity. A preventive effect of EH-A001 given by oral route at dose from 100 to 1000 mg/kg was observed against compound 48/80-induced systemic anaphylaxis. At the same range of dose, EH-A001 inhibited passive cutaneous anaphylaxis (PCA) in rat and active paw(More)
INTRODUCTION Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), including selective cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitors (coxibs) and traditional NSAIDs (tNSAIDs), have been widely used for the treatment of pain and rheumatic disease. The use of NSAIDs has been linked to increased cardiovascular toxicity in both healthy individuals and patients with established(More)
The in vivo antioxidant properties of green tea extract (GTE) were investigated against doxorubicin (DOX) induced cardiotoxicity in rats. In this experiment, 48 Wistar albino rats (200-250 g) were divided into eight groups (n = 6). Control group received normal saline for 30 days. Cardiotoxicity was induced by DOX (20 mg/kg ip.), once on 29th day of study(More)
CONTEXT There has been a steady increase in the epidemiology of obesity over the last 30 years with developed countries leading the way. Oxidative stress was believed to be the principle contributor to the development of cardiovascular disorders that linked with obesity. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the enhancement of antioxidant defense mechanism by(More)
A number of new 8-substituted-4-(2/4-substituted phenyl)-2H-[1,3,5]triazino[2,1-b][1,3]benzothiazole-2-thiones (4a-t) were synthesized and evaluated for their anticonvulsant, anti-nociceptive, hepatotoxic, and neurotoxic properties. The titled compounds (4a-t) were obtained by cyclization of(More)
