Effect of Camellia sinensis, Hypericum perforatum and Urtica dioica on kidney and liver injury induced by carbon tetrachloride in rats.

This study is aimed to investigate the effects of Camellia sinensis (CS), Hypericum perforatum (HP) and Urtica dioica (UD) in kidney and liver injury induced by carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) in rats. Highly toxic CCl4 which is used as a solvent in industry comprises experimental toxicity in rats and is widely used in hepatotoxicity and other tissue injury models. The purpose of this investigation is to monitor blood and various tissues by biochemical and histopathological analysis for preventive effects of CS, HP and UD on oxidative stress induced by administration of CCl4 and to enlighten the probable mechanism. Fifty eight rats were divided into five groups; sham group (Group 1, untreated animals), control CCl4 treated group (Group 2), HP extract-treated group (Group 3), UD extract-treated group (Group 4), CS extract-treated group (Group 5). All rats were anaesthetized at the end of the experiment and the blood was collected from each rat. Afterwards, tissue specimens were obtained. The tissue specimens were immersed in 10% formaldehyde for 24 hours. After routine tissue processing, the liver, kidney and stomach were sectioned in 5µm thickness, stained in hematoxylin and eosin. The histological study was performed by using light microscope. The serum marker enzymes were found to be significantly increased in CCl4-induced liver and kidney damage when compared with the sham group (p<0.05). However, treatment with CS, HP, and UD extracts resulted in decreased activity o...

Hi all, Current M4 here planning on going into anesthesia. So I have been trying to figure out how go about applying to transitional years vs prelim medicine programs, and am having trouble finding information online. It seems that TY years are more "cush," but at the same time, I will have to be competing against applicants who are going into derm, ophtho, rad onc, etc. On ERAS, there are hundreds of programs listed for TY and prelim medicine years and I was wondering how I should even go... How to go about applying to transitional year vs. prelim medicine programs?

Same-eye comparison of pupillary dilation with an intraoperative standardized intracameral combination of mydriatics (Mydrane®) versus a preoperative ophthalmic (Mydriasert®) in standard cataract surgery in non-diabetic patients. J Fr Ophtalmol. 2019 Aug 19;: Authors: de Faria A, Giorgi R, Cohen Salmon M, Bonnel S, Holweck G, Le Corre A, Chazalon E Abstract INTRODUCTION: Cataract surgery is the most commonly performed surgery in the world, and its success depends in part on the quality of mydriasis. PURPOSE: To compare, for the same eye, the pupillary dilation obtained with Mydrane® (st...

Authors: Abstract Heavy menstrual bleeding is defined as excessive menstrual blood loss that interferes with a woman's physical, social, emotional, or material quality of life. If obstetrician-gynecologists suspect that a patient has a bleeding disorder, they should work in coordination with a hematologist for laboratory evaluation and medical management. Evaluation of adolescent girls who present with heavy menstrual bleeding should include assessment for anemia from blood loss, including serum ferritin, the presence of an endocrine disorder leading to anovulation, and evaluation for the presence of a bleeding d...
