[ 2 ] - Evaluation of Diabetogenic Mechanism of High Fat Diet in Combination with Arsenic Exposure in Male Mice

Obesity is a main reason of type 2 diabetes and also chronic exposure to arsenic (As)can produce diabetic symptoms. In previous studies, the association between high-fat dietand arsenic in the incidence of diabetes was found, but the role of beta cells activity, livermitochondrial oxidative stress, and hepatic enzymes (leptin, adiponectin and beta amylase)was unclear. Thus, present study was co...

[ 5 ] - بررسی سطح پلاسمایی ویتامین D در مبتلایان به ژیاردیازیس مزمن مراجعه کننده به آزمایشگاه بیمارستان‌های آموزشی دانشگاه علوم پزشکی جندی شاپور اهواز و احتمال خطر ابتلاء به دیابت نوع 2 در این افراد

زمینه و هدف: ژیاردیازیس یک بیماری انگلی ایجاد توسط ژیاردیا لامبلیا است که باعث سوء جذب ویتامین Dشده و کمبود این ویتامین احتمال ابتلا به دیابت نوع2 را افزایش می دهد. بنابراین مطالعه حاضر با هدف بررسی اثر ژیاردیازیس مزمن بر وضعیت ویتامینD و خطر ابتلاء به دیابت نوع 2 در بیماران صورت پذیرفت. روش بررسی: در مطالعه مورد شاهدی(Case-Control) حاضر تعداد 60 نفراز مراجعین به آزمایشگاه بیمارستان های آ...

[ 6 ] - Efficiency of naringin against reproductive toxicity and testicular damages induced by bisphenol A in rats

Objective(s): Bisphenol A (BPA) as a synthetic compound is applied in many plastic industries. BPA has been reported to have endocrine-disrupting feature with cytotoxic effects. The study aimed to evaluate the efficiency of Naringin against testicular toxicity induced by BPA in adult rats.Materials and Methods: The animals were assigned into six groups of control, BPA-treated (50 mg/kg), BPA+Na...

[ 7 ] - Antioxidant, anti-apoptotic, and protective effects of myricitrin and its solid lipid nanoparticle on streptozotocin-nicotinamide-induced diabetic nephropathy in type 2 diabetic male mice

Objective(s): The present study evaluates the protective effects of myricitrin and its solid lipid nanoparticle (SLN) on diabetic nephropathy (DN) induced by streptozotocin-nicotinamide (STZ-NA) in mice. Materials and Methods: In this experimental study, 108 adult male NMRI mice were divided into 9 groups: control, vehicle, diabetes, dia...
