Summary of "Protective effect of diallyl sulfide against lead-mediated oxidative damage, apoptosis and down-regulation of CYP19 gene expression in rat testes."

The present study aimed to investigate the potential therapeutic effect of diallyl sulfide (DAS), a natural component of garlic (Allium sativum), in the improvement of lead (Pb)-induced testicular toxicity and its underlying mechanisms.

Diallyl sulfide ameliorates carbon tetrachloride-induced hepatotoxicity in rats via suppressing stress-activated MAPK signaling pathways.

The underlined effects of diallyl sulfide (DAS) against CCL -induced oxidative, inflammatory, and apoptotic acute hepatic damage were assessed. Administration of DAS (50, 100, and 200 mg/kg) along w...

Protective effect of antioxidant Tempol on cardiac stem cells in chronic pressure overload hypertrophy.

Cardiac hypertrophy, an independent risk factor for cardiac failure; is associated with oxidative stress. Decline in the proportion of healthy cardiac stem cells (CSCs), possibly mediated by oxidative...

The protective effect of Costus afer Ker Gawl aqueous leaf extract on lead-induced reproductive changes in male albino Wistar rats.

Lead is a multiple organ toxicant and an oxidative-stress inducer. The effect of Costus afer on metal- induced male reprotoxicity has not been previously carried out, hence this study. The present stu...

Protective effect of enzymatic hydrolysates from seahorse (Hippocampus abdominalis) against HO-mediated human umbilical vein endothelial cell injury.

Oxidative stress-mediated endothelial dysfunction and LDL oxidation have been implicated in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. Thus, the protection of the endothelial cells against oxidative stress-...

The neuroprotective effect of vitamin E on waterpipe tobacco smoking-induced memory impairment: The antioxidative role.

Tobacco smoking is associated with a vast range of adverse health effects, including diminished cognitive and anti-oxidative capabilities. Conversely, vitamin E (VitE) is known to enhance data acquisi...

Specialized clothing or equipment worn for protection against health hazards. Personal Protective Equipment may include MASKS; RESPIRATORY PROTECTIVE DEVICES; HEAD PROTECTIVE DEVICES; EYE PROTECTIVE DEVICES; EAR PROTECTIVE DEVICES; PROTECTIVE CLOTHING; and protective footwear.

A dual inhibitor of both cyclooxygenase and lipoxygenase pathways. It exerts an anti-inflammatory effect by inhibiting the formation of prostaglandins and leukotrienes. The drug also enhances pulmonary hypoxic vasoconstriction and has a protective effect after myocardial ischemia.

A radiation-protective agent that can inhibit DNA damage by binding to the DNA. It also increases the susceptibility of blood cells to complement-mediated lysis.

Accumulations of microflora that lead to pathological plaque and calculus which cause PERIODONTAL DISEASES. It can be considered a type of BIOFILMS. It is subtly distinguished from the protective DENTAL PELLICLE.

An effect usually, but not necessarily, beneficial that is attributable to an expectation that the regimen will have an effect, i.e., the effect is due to the power of suggestion.
