Phacoemulsification has been successfully employed in humans and animals for lens extraction. This ultrasonic extracapsular surgical technique induces hydroxyl radical formation in the anterior chamber, which accumulates despite irrigation and aspiration. In this paper we determined the total antioxidant status of aqueous humor after phacoemulsification by(More)
A new high performance liquid chromatographic method has been established for simultaneous determination of chlorogenic acid, caffeic acid and caffeine in hydroalcoholic and aqueous extracts of Ilex paraguariensis. Analytical curves showed good linear regression in the concentration ranges 0.49-7.8 μg/mL for chlorogenic acid, 0.25-3.9 μg/mL for caffeic acid(More)
There is a high degree of concern regarding the secure use of plant extracts and, for this very reason, preclinical and clinic toxicological evaluation of these extracts are needed. With the aim to assure the quality and the safety of the extract and due to the scarcity of literature information about Pariparoba extract toxicity, our purpose was to(More)
BACKGROUND Cataract is an important cause of blindness in dogs and frequently develops in young animals of certain breeds, such as the English cocker spaniel and the poodle. Protein oxidation is one of the mechanisms involved in lens opacification and may be causally related to depleted or diminished endogenous antioxidant defences. We evaluated the levels(More)
This work evaluated the levels of 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA) in the liver of rats exposed to different doses of HCB (25,50, and 100 mg/kg b.w. for 4 weeks) and correlated them with lipid peroxidation parameters. Levels of ALA were determined by highpressure liquid chromatography after derivatization with acetylacetone and formaldehyde, followed by(More)
