The Role of Resistin Level and Genetic Study for Patients with Hypercholesterolemia

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.581
Synopsis: 
This study deal with determination of resistin for patients (33 females and 31 males) who attend Rizgary Teaching Hospital, Erbil, Iraq, between November 2014 and March 2015, the study included biochemistry parameter analysis (ox-LDL), Hcy, TC, HDL-C, MDA) as well as teh antioxidant (GHS, A, C, E), and genetic study MTHFR gene (exon4) for females with (hypercholesterolemia and FH).

ABSTRACT

Objective: The study aimed to investigate the role and level of resistin and correlation some biochemical parameters (ox-LDL, Hcy, LDL-C, TC, HDL, BMI and lipid peroxidation MDA), Antioxidant (GSH, A, C, E), also we studied familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) to investigate the effects of MTHFR gene mutation.

Protective Effect of Wolf Berry Extract on Acetic Acid-Induced Colitis in Rats

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.444
Synopsis: 
Wolf berry extract has certain anti-aging, neuroprotective, anti-fatigue/endurance-increasing, and anti-oxidant biological effects with anti-tumor activity and cytoprotection. The protective effect of Wolf berry against acetic acid-induced colitis in rats and Wolf berry extract effectiveness were investigated in this study.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The aim of the present study was to investigate the protective effect of WB against acetic acid-induced colitis in rats.

Effect of Antioxidant on Coronal Seal of Dentin Following Sodium Hypochlorite and Hydrogen-Peroxide Irrigation

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.365
Synopsis: 
This study shows the adverse effects of irrigants such as sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) on the adhesiveness of resin composite to tooth structures. It can be neutralized and the reduction of microleakage can be done by the addition of antioxidants (Sodium Ascorbate and Quercetine) to the irrigants.

ABSTRACT

Aim: Comparative analysis of the coronal microleakage of a self-etching priming dentin adhesive with the use of antioxidant (Sodium Ascorbate (SA) and herbal quercetin) after Sodium hypochloride (NaOCl) and hydrogen-peroxide (H2 O2) irrigation.

The Radioprotective Effects of Caffeic Acid Phenethyl Ester and Thymoquinone on Oxidative and Nitrosative Stress in Liver Tissue of Rats Exposed to Total Head Irradiation

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.176
Pages: 
1–7
Synopsis: 
This study investigates the effects of the addition of caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE) and thymoquinone on oxidative and nitrosative stress in the liver tissue of irradiated rats. Thymoquinone and CAPE decrease oxidative and nitrosative stress markers and have antioxidant effects, which also increase antioxidant capacity in the liver tissue of irradiated rats.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of addition of caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE) and thymoquinone (TQ)on oxidative and nitrosative stress in the liver tissue of (IR) irradiated rats.

Methods: Forty Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into five groups to test the radioprotective effectiveness of TQand CAPE administered by intraperitoneal injection. Appropriate control groups were also studied.

A Comparative In Vitro Study on the Antioxidant and Anti-acetylcholinesterase Properties of Aerial Parts of Strophanthus preusii Engl & Pax

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2013.287
Pages: 
408–15
Synopsis: 
The leaves and root of Strophanthus preusii have proven to be potent natural antioxidants which could justify their traditional use in the management of stress-related diseases.

 ABSTRACT

Objective: To evaluate and compare the antioxidant and acetylcholinesterase (AChE)-inhibitory properties of aerial parts of Strophanthus preussii (leaves, stem and root named as SPL, SPS and SPR, respectively) while catechin served as standard.
