Ahilan, M. Valan Arasu, S. Ignacimuthu, Galal Ali EsmailAbstractBorassus flabellifer L. is a tall palm traditionally used for its stimulating, diuretic and anti-inflammatory activities; it is rich in fibers and various pharmacologically important secondary metabolites. The present study was undertaken to evaluate the antidiabetic effects of Borassus flabellifer fruit methanol extract (BF-M) on diabetic rats induced with High Fat D...

The hydroxymethyglutaryl-coenzyme A reductase inhibitors (statins) are a commonly prescribed class of medication for the treatment of hyperlipidemia and coronary artery disease. This class of medication has several proven benefits, including reduction of mortality related to coronary artery disease. A major consideration when prescribing these drugs are the potential for adverse effects, mainly myalgias, myopathy, and hepatotoxicity. In this article, we summarize current data on statin-associated hepatotoxicity and highlight that the risk of clinically significant idiosyncratic drug-induced liver injury is actually quite s...

Whether respiratory epithelial cells regulate the final transit of extravasated neutrophils into the inflamed airspace or are a passive barrier is poorly understood. Alveolar epithelial type 1 (AT1) cells, best known for solute transport and gas exchange, have few established immune roles. Epithelial membrane protein 2 (EMP2), a tetraspan protein that promotes recruitment of integrins to lipid rafts, is highly expressed in AT1 cells, but has no known function in lung biology. Here, we show that Emp2–/– mice exhibit reduced neutrophil influx into the airspace after a wide range of inhaled exposures. During bacte...

e M Abstract During inflammation and infection, invading pathogens as well as infiltrating neutrophils locally consume oxygen and reduce the present oxygen level. Since oxygen is an elementary component of the microenvironment required for cell activity and alters multiple cellular functions, it is important to study neutrophil functionality and phenotype at characteristic pathophysiological oxygen levels that reflect the hypoxic phenotype during infection and inflammation. Here, we describe methods to study murine neutrophils under hypoxic compared to normoxic conditions, including analysis of cholesterol co...

AbstractCurcumin has a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that may suppress inflammatory component of atherosclerosis. It has been demonstrated that curcumin derivatives can reduce the formation of arterial fatty streaks in cholesterol-fed rabbits. Therefore in this study we evaluated the protective effects of Curcumin on the progression of atherosclerosis. 20 mature rabbits were included for this study; they were randomly divided into four groups each of 5. Group 1: (normal control) were fed corn pellets diet and tab water, group 2: (high cholesterol diet control) were kept on cholesterol rich diet (2% ch...
