Objective(s): Previous studies have shown that thyroid hormones are necessary for normal development of many organs and because of the importance of skin as the largest and the most important organ in human body protection in spite of external environment, the study of thyroid hormones effects on skin development is considerable. In this survey we have tried to study the effects of maternal h...
Human umbilical cord blood (HUCB) is now considered as a valuable source for stem cell–based therapies. Previous studies showed that intravascular injection of the HUCB significantly improves neurological functional recovery in a rat model of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). In the present study, we hypothesize transplanted HUCB derived mononuclear cells (UC-MCs) can decrease injur...
Objective: Diabetes mellitus is one of the most
prevalent metabolic diseases
and causes testicular damage by rising
oxidative stress. Using antioxidants reduces oxidative stress and the
amount of testicular damage. In
this study, the
effect of garlic extract on markers of oxidative
stress in diabetic rats testes has

Background: Brain hypoxia-ischemia is a human neonatal injury that is considered a candidate for stem cell therapy. Methods: The possible therapeutic potential of human umbilical cord blood (HUCB) stem cells was evaluated in 14-day-old rats subjected to the right common carotid occlusion, a model of neonatal brain hypoxia-ischemia. Seven days after hypoxia-ischemia, rats received either saline ...
Objective(s): The aim of this study was to determine the protective role of ascorbic acid on apoptosis and proliferation of spermatogonia and primary spermatocyte cells after malathion administration as an organophosphate pesticide in rat testis.Materials and Methods: Thirty male Wistar rats were randomly divided into five groups of 6 ra...
Objective Diazinon is an organophosphate pesticide and today this pesticide is mostly used in agriculture. In this study, we analyzed the effects of diazinon and vitamin E on apoptosis and the proliferation of germ cells in rat testis. MaterialsAndMethods In this experimental study 30 male wistar rats, were divided into five groups (N=6). Control, sham (received olive oil), experimental group 1...
