Taurine (Tau) is used in clinical treatments but its protection of brains against aluminum-induced oxidative damage has been explored for the first time. The positive effect of Tau was studied on the activities of antioxidant enzymes and ATPase. Aluminum (Al) intake caused significant increasement of malondialdehyde (MDA) but reduction of the activities of(More)
As a common disease, stroke could be divided into two types: ischemic and haemorrhagic.

Williams syndrome is caused by a gene deletion of chromosome 7. A majority of the cases are sporadic with typical facial appearance, cardiac anomalies, and mental retardation. We report a rare case of Williams syndrome associated with supravalvular aortic stenosis, subvalvular aortic membrane, mitral regurgitation, aortic coarctation, and patent ductus(More)
The study investigated the combined effect of 1,2-dimethyl-3-hydroxypyrid-4-one (DFP) and taurine on aluminum (Al) toxicity in cortex and blood of rats. The control group received 1 ml/kg/day saline solution for 8 weeks. Other animals were exposed to Al at a dose of 281.40 mg/kg/day orally for 4 weeks. Then, they were administered with 1 ml/kg/day saline(More)
