Back ground & Aim of the work: Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a chronic metabolic disorder brings great danger to human health. Low-dose-rate radiation modulates various biological responses including carcinogenesis, immunological responses and diabetes. This study  examined the effect of low doses of irradiation on the pathological and ultrastructural  progression of type I diabetes in rats inducted by Streptozotocin. Material and Methods: The present study was done on 80 healthy adult albino male…

The Influence of UV Irradiation on Diabetic Mice Skin: A Vibrational FT-IR and Raman Spectroscopic Study

The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of UV irradiation on streptozotocin-induced diabetic skin. 42 hairless male mice were divided into three groups of control non-diabetic and with



Prevention of Type I Diabetes by Low-Dose Gamma Irradiation in NOD Mice

The results indicate that treatment with 0.5 Gy γ rays suppresses progression of type I diabetes in NOD mice, the first report on the preventive effect of low-dose irradiation on disease progression.

Suppressive effect of low-dose X-irradiation on type I diabetes non-obese diabetic (NOD) mice

The results suggest that the low dose irradiation delayed the onset of type I diabetes in NOD mice by suppressing apoptotic cell death in pancreas, probably through enhancing antioxidant defence mechanisms.

Attenuation of Diabetes-Induced Cardiac Inflammation and Pathological Remodeling by Low-Dose Radiation

It is suggested that although low-dose radiation contributes to mild cardiac inflammation in control mice, it can significantly reduce diabetes-induced cardiac inflammation and associated pathological changes and may potentially become a novel approach to the prevention of diabetic cardiovascular complications.


Although aqueous extract of T. polium contains some hepatotoxic compounds, it also contains components that are beneficial in the treatment of streptozocin-induced diabetes.

Combined treatment with naringin and vitamin C ameliorates streptozotocin‐induced diabetes in male Wistar rats

The study shows the antihyperglycemic and antioxidant effects of naringin and vitamin C in STZ‐induced type II diabetes mellitus in rats.

Effects of pre-exposure of mouse testis with low-dose (16)O8+ ions or 60Co gamma-rays on sperm shape abnormalities, lipid peroxidation and superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity induced by subsequent high-dose irradiation.

It is suggested that pre-exposure of testes with a low dose of heavy ions or gamma-rays renders the organ more resistant to subsequent high-dose irradiation.

Protection against alloxan diabetes by low-dose 60Co gamma irradiation before alloxan administration.

The protective effects of a single low-dose whole body 60Co gamma irradiation against alloxan-induced hyperglycemia in rats was evaluated and degranulation was observed in beta cells, but this was prevented by low- dose irradiation at 0.5 Gy.

Increased SOD activities and decreased lipid peroxide levels induced by low dose X irradiation in rat organs.

Melatonin treatment against remote organ injury induced by renal ischemia reperfusion injury in diabetes mellitus

It was concluded that melatonin treatment may prevent liver oxidant stress induced by distant injury of kidney IR through protective effect of melatonin against distant organ injury on liver induced by renal IR in rats with or without DM.
