Amac: Bazi epidemiyolojik ve laboratuar calismalar oldukca dusuk frekansli manyetik alan ile kanser arasinda iliski oldugunu ileri surmektedir. Ancak bu etkilesimin altinda yatan mekanizma tam olarak bilinmemektedir. Calismamizin amaci ratlardaki submandibular ve parotis bezleri uzerindeki uzun sureli oldukca dusuk frekansli manyetik alanin oksidatif ve antioksidatif etkilerini arastirmaktir. Yontemler: Ratlar; calisma duzenegi olarak gunde 2 saat, yedi gun ve 10 ay boyunca insanlar icin…

Effects of Melatonin at Different
This research presents a new probabilistic procedure for selecting a single substance as a treatment for central giant cell granuloma and shows real promise in finding treatments for epilepsy and other central nervous system disorders.
Investigation of BRCA 1 , BRCA 2 Gene Mutations and P 53 Gene Polymorphism in High-Voltage Transmission Line Workers
BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations were not observed among the high-voltage transmission line workers except one in this study, and P53 gene polymorphism also showed no difference between groups.


The preventive effect of lotus seedpod procyanidins on cognitive impairment and oxidative damage induced by extremely low frequency electromagnetic field exposure.
The data suggested that the LSPCs can effectively prevent learning and memory damage and oxidative damage caused by the ELF-EMF, most likely through the ability of L SPCs to scavenge oxygen free radicals and to stimulate antioxidant enzyme activity.
Relationship of oxidative events and DNA oxidation in SENCAR mice to in vivo promoting activity of phorbol ester-type tumor promoters.
The results strengthen the evidence that ROS are involved in tumor promotion, and that generation of ROS and the subsequent oxidative DNA modification are related to the tumor-promoting potencies of the different phorbol ester-type promoters.
Antioxidant parameters and lipid peroxidation in salivary glands of streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats.
Can safe and long-term exposure to extremely low frequency (50 Hz) magnetic fields affect apoptosis, reproduction, and oxidative stress?
Long-term exposure to 100 μT and 500 μT ELF-MF did not affect oxidative or antioxidative processes, lipid peroxidation, or reproductive components such as sperm count and morphology in testes tissue of rats, however, long-term exposed rats did affect active-caspase-3 activity, which is a well-known apoptotic indicator.
Antioxidant activity of rat parotid saliva.
The capacity of saliva in suppressing redox activity was found to be inversely related to the concentrations of iron and copper added (but not manganese), but correlated well with the protein content.
Effects of Extremely Low-Frequency Magnetic Field on Caspase Activities and Oxidative Stress Values in Rat Brain
Investigation of the effect of extremely low-frequency magnetic field (ELF-MF) on apoptosis and oxidative stress values in the brain of rat found apoptosis was not changed, while both 100 and 500 µT ELF-MF exposure induced toxic effect in the rat brain by increasing oxidative stress and diminishing antioxidant defense system.
Salivary gland involvement in rheumatoid arthritis and its relationship to induced oxidative stress.
The demonstrated correlation between the altered salivary parameters and the severity of the disease may indicate that evaluation of the salivaries of rheumatoid arthritis patients is warranted.
Protection by sildenafil and theophylline of lead acetate-induced oxidative stress in rat submandibular gland and saliva
It is concluded that lead toxicity is mediated through oxidative stress in salivary glands, while increasing intracellular cAMP and cGMP levels may prevent lead-induced oxidative stress.
Age-related modifications in human unstimulated whole saliva: A biochemical study
The results suggest that during aging the oral tissues may become more susceptible to environmental factors due to a modification in the balance between different antimicrobial agents.
