چکیده مقاله:

Background Varicocele (VCL) is characterized by a progressive disorder which is defined by tortuosity of the pampiniform plexus veins. Although elevated oxidative stress, diminished endocrine status and severe inflammation are considered as main reasons for VCL-induced apoptosis, the role of estrogen receptors, testicular aromatization and proto-oncogenes under these conditions are remained unknown. Present study was done to uncover the therapeutic effect of silymarin (SMN, potent antioxidant), Celecoxib (CCB, COXII-inhibitor) and testosterone co-administration on mentioned parameters. MaterialsAndMethods Forty two mature male Wistar rats (2 months old) were randomly divided into 7 groups (N=6) as control-sham and experimental. VCL-induced animals in control-sham group received no chemical. The animals in experimental groups subdivided into 6 groups as; SMN alone-received (100 mg/kg), CCB alone-received (10 mg/kg), testosterone alone-received (40 μg/kg), SMN + CCBreceived, SMN + testosterone-received, CCB + testosteronereceived and SMN + testosterone+CCB-received groups. All chemicals were administrated orally, for 60 days. After 60 days testes were dissected out. The ERα, ERβ, p53 and bcl-2 expression was evaluated by using immunohistochemical and RT-PCR techniques. The mRNA level of cytochrome CYP19 was assessed by using RT-PCR. Results Co-administration of SMN+CCB+testosterone significantly (P

O-4: Protective Effect of Silymarin on Sperm Viability and Chromatin Packing in Varicocele-Induced Rats

Background: Varicocele has been repeatedly implicated as a cause of infertility in selected men. Previous studies have showed high levels of seminal oxidative stress, as evidenced by increased levels of ROS and reduced total antioxidant capacity in varicocele men, suggesting that sperm dysfunction in varicocele patients may be partly related to oxidative stress. Thus current study was designed ...

P-66: Protective Effect of Testosterone and Vitamin E on Atrazine-Induced Toxicity in Testis

Background: Atrazine (ATR) is herbicide which is known to induce endocrine disruption. According to previous reports, long-time exposure to ATR leads to severe seminiferous tubules degeneration and significant reduction in sperm content. Moreover this chemical exerts its pathological impact partly by inducing oxidative stress. Therefore present study was designed in order to evaluate protective...

Protective effects of celecoxib on inflammatory cytokine levels and testis indices after induction of varicocele

Introduction: Varicocele is a pathological dilation of spermatic cord vein plexus, and celecoxib, an inhibitor of cyclo-oxygenase-2, is widely used in the treatment of chronic inflammation. So, we examined the effects of celecoxib on inflammatory cytokines, testicular Sertoli and spermatogonial cells number, seminiferous tubule diameter, and sperm indices in immature male rats with induced vari...
