This study was designed to determine the possible protective effect of Ginkgo biloba extract (EGb) against oxidative organ damage distant from the original burn wound. Under brief ether anesthesia, the shaved dorsum of the rats was exposed to 90 degrees C (burn group) or 25 degrees C (control group) water bath for 10 seconds. EGb (50 mg/kg/day) or saline was administered intraperitoneally immediately and at 12 hours after the burn injury. Rats were decapitated 24 hours after burn injury and… Expand
The effect of Myrtus communis L. ethanol extract on the small intestine and lungs in experimental thermal burn injury.
TLDR
Mrytus communis extract may be an ideal candidate to be used as an antioxidant adjunct to improve oxidative distant organ damage to limit the systemic inflammatory response and decreasing the recovery time after thermal injury. Expand
Protective effect of Myrtle (Myrtus communis) on burn induced skin injury.
TLDR
Both oral and topical Myrtle extract treatment was found to have protective role in the burn induced oxidative injury, which may be attributed to the potential antioxidant effect of Myrtle. Expand
Lycopene inhibits caspase-3 activity and reduces oxidative organ damage in a rat model of thermal injury.
TLDR
According to the findings of the present study, lycopene possesses antiinflammatory, antiapoptotic and antioxidant effects that prevents burn-induced oxidative damage in remote organs. Expand
Halofuginone Alleviates Burn-Induced Hepatic and Renal Damage in Rats
TLDR
Halofuginone treatment improved renal functions in late burn group and hepatic functions in early burn group as demonstrated by decreased serum creatinine, blood urea nitrogen, and alanine aminotransferase levels. Expand
The hepatic protective mechanism of Ginkgo biloba extract in rats with obstructive jaundice.
TLDR
GBE mediated the liver protective effect at least in part by suppressing overproduction of ET-1 and NO and restoring a proper balance between ET- 1 and NO to some extent. Expand
Effect of melatonin on burn-induced gastric mucosal injury in rats.
TLDR
It is hypothesised that melatonin restores the redox balance in the gastric mucosa and protects it from burn-induced oxidative injury and should largely be considered as a limiting factor for tissue-damage. Expand
Effective melatonin protection of burn-induced hepatic disorders in rats
TLDR
Melatonin could restore liver damage following thermal injury in humans and repaired the pathomorphological lesions and functional disorders using serum markers of liver dysfunction such as cholinesterase and gamma glutamyl transpeptidase, hepatic protein content and malondialdehyde in a burned-rat model. Expand
Ginkgo biloba, a free oxygen radical scavenger, affects inflammatory mediators to diminish the occurrence of experimental myringosclerosis
TLDR
Myringosclerosis was significantly more severe in control and saline groups than in Ginkgo biloba groups, while the levels of nitrite in ginkgo-treated groups were significantly lower than in untreated and saline-treatedgroups, while glutathione peroxidase levels were significantly higher. Expand
Efficacy of topical application of standardized extract of Tragopogon graminifolius in the healing process of experimental burn wounds
TLDR
Considering the antioxidative stress and anti-inflammatory activities of TG, explained by the high content of phenolic compounds of the plant, standardized TG extract could be considered as a natural remedy for the treatment of burn wounds. Expand
Investigation of wound healing activity of Cynara humilis root extracts.
TLDR
It is suggested that C. humilis powder extract could be a promising source for developing drugs against skin burn and exhibited important wound healing effects on time depending manner. Expand

Melatonin improves oxidative organ damage in a rat model of thermal injury.
TLDR
Treatment of rats with melatonin (10mg/kg) significantly elevated the reduced GSH levels while it decreased MDA and PO levels as well as MPO activity. Expand

TLDR
GbE can protect damaged neurons through keeping the balance of inhibitory/excitatory amino-acids, enhancing free radicals scavengers system, and inhibiting the effect of glutamate to [Ca2+]i. Expand
Melatonin Protects Against Oxidative Organ Injury in a Rat Model of Sepsis
TLDR
Melatonin clearly reversed these oxidant responses and the microscopic damage, demonstrating its protective effects against sepsis-induced oxidative organ injury, and supplementing antiseptic shock treatment with melatonin may be beneficial in the clinical setting. Expand
Effects of N-acetylcysteine on lung glutathione levels in rats after burn injury.
TLDR
It was showed that thermal injury resulted in increased pulmonary lipid peroxidation, and this remote organ injury was decreased by treatment with NAC, a scavenger of hydroxyl radicals, improved GSH levels in the lungs. Expand
Hepatic fibrosis in biliary-obstructed rats is prevented by Ginkgo biloba treatment.
TLDR
The results suggest that Ginkgo biloba protects the liver from oxidative damage following BDL in rats, and possibly involves the inhibition of neutrophil infiltration and lipid peroxidation; thus, restoration of oxidant and antioxidant status in the tissue. Expand
Evaluation of lipid peroxidation and total antioxidant status in plasma of rats following thermal injury.
TLDR
To determine the relationship between the level of total natural scavengers of the body, the place of superoxide dismutase in this capacity, and its relation with lipid peroxidation, malondialdehyde, superoxide Dismutase levels and total antioxidant status were measured in plasma, animals were subjected to 30 per cent full thickness body surface area burn. Expand
Excessive liver oxidant stress causes mortality in response to burn injury combined with endotoxin and is prevented with antioxidants.
TLDR
It is concluded that a 20% burn produces a modest decrease in liver energy charge potential and antioxidant defenses without producing mortality, suggesting that a critical value of decreases in antioxidant defenses and ATP exists, resulting in mortality. Expand
Caffeic acid phenethyl ester improves oxidative erythrocyte damage in a rat model of thermal injury.
TLDR
Treatment with caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE) resulted in decreased erythrocyte lipid peroxidation in thermal injury and helped to prevent oxidative damage by decreasing activity of XO and levels of NO. Expand
The effect of antioxidant therapy on cell-mediated immunity following burn injury in an animal model.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a large burn was profoundly immunosuppressive and early intervention of antioxidant therapy was able to significantly restore cell-mediated immunity as reflected by two in vivo assays. Expand
Systemic lipid peroxidation and inflammation induced by thermal injury persists into the post-resuscitation period.
TLDR
It is concluded that an initial system lipid peroxidation occurs immediately after burn injury, and that this process continues well into the post-resuscitation period, corresponding in time with increased VO2, lung inflammation, and evidence of liver dysfunction. Expand
