HIV-1 is a global catastrophe, and is exceedingly prevalent in Sub-Saharan Africa. HIV-associated neurocognitive disorder is characterized by symptoms such as motor impairments, a decline in cognition, and behavioural irregularities. The aim of this study was to provide insight into the fundamental behavioural and histopathological mechanisms underlying the(More)
OBJECTIVES The objective was to test the hypothesis that uterine sarcomatous cells are hormone-sensitive. We included 2-methoxyestradiol, an endogenous metabolite of estradiol with antiproliferative properties. METHODS Proliferation assays assessed the effects of estradiol, progesterone, tamoxifen, raloxifen, [D-Trp(6)]leuteinizing hormone-releasing(More)
Objectives: Although the naphthoquinone, 7-methyljuglone (7-MJ), is active against Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) in vitro, neither the cellular site nor mechanism of anti-mycobacterial action of this agent has been identified. The primary objective of the current study was to investigate the mycobacterial outer membrane as a potential target of 7-MJ by(More)
BACKGROUND The discovery of the only animal pigment, bilirubin, in the plant Strelitzia nicolai has triggered a vast number of questions regarding bilirubin's formation and its role in the human body. Recent studies have confirmed that bilirubin at certain levels have many medical benefits. Various case studies have revealed that bilirubin is a potent(More)
BACKGROUND The fortuitous discovery of an animal pigment bilirubin found in the plant Strelitzia nicolai has opened an enormous number of questions regarding bilirubin's formation and its ultimate function in the human body. MATERIALS AND METHODS A methodical review of bilirubin in humans and animals was carried out, information was gathered using(More)
The influence of 2-methoxyestradiol (2-ME) was investigated on cell numbers, morphology, cell cycle progression, and apoptosis induction in an oesophageal carcinoma cell line (WHCO3). Dose-dependent studies (1 x 10(-9)M-1 x 10(-6)M) revealed that 2-ME significantly reduced cell numbers to 60% in WHCO3 after 72 h of exposure at a concentration of 1 x 10(-6)M(More)
