The electromagnetic field (EMF) has an effect on various organs, including the female reproductive system. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of carnosine on ovarian follicle number and diameter in rats exposed to a 900 Megahertz (Mhz) electromagnetic field. In this study, six different groups were used. 40 female rats divided int...

This study was carried out to determine the effect of intrauterine carbamazepine (CBZ) exposure on fetal bone development during pregnancy. In the study, 24 female Wistar pregnant rats were used. Rats were 20 weeks old. They had an average body weight of 150–200 g. Pregnant rats were randomly selected and divided (n = 6) into a control group, low‐d...

We investigated using histochemistry and immunohistochemistry ovarian damage caused by nonylphenol (NP) and the protective effect of melatonin treatment of NP induced ovarian damage. We used 21 female rats divided randomly into three groups: control, NP and melatonin + NP. Histopathological examination of the ovaries, and counting and classificatio...
Article
Histopathological image analysis is used in the diagnosis of many diseases such as cancer, brain tumor, fatty liver and congenital heart diseases. In clinical practice, the time-consuming diagnostic process requires an expertise in the field, and disagreements can arise among pathologists at the decision stage. Machine learning methods can be used...
Article
Purpose: Although radiation is one of the basic methods commonly used in cancer treatment, it inevitably enters the field of treatment in healthy tissues and is adversely affected by the acute and chronic side effects of radiation. This study evaluated the possible protective effects of quercetin, an antioxidant agent, against liver and kidney dam...
Article
Purpose: The aim of this study was to compare the effects of topical cyclosporine 0.1% and bevacizumab on experimentally induced corneal neovascularization in a rat model. Methods: A total of 30 adult Sprague-Dawley rats were used in this experimental study. The central cornea of the rats was cauterized chemically. The rats were randomly enrolle...
Article
Background: Ionizing radiation poses a threat to the early embryo possibly leading to prenatal death, growth retardation, organ malformation, or mental retardation. It is important, assessment of any adverse effects of radiation upon the embryo. This study aimed to evaluate the outcomes of embryos irradiated with 1Gy doses in vitro and investigate...
Article
Introduction: The ear, originates from the ectoderm, exhibits a complex structure that differs from species to species in terms of development. Objectives: This study was conducted to describe the prenatal and postnatal development process of the organ of Corti in the iner ear using light microscopy. Methods: In this study, Wistar Albino rats were...

Article
Objective We aimed to investigate the effects of umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells and erythropoietin on nerve regeneration in the sciatic nerve ‘crush injury’ in a rat model. Methods Experimental animals were randomly divided into 5 groups: Crush Injury, Sham, Crush Injury + Erythropoietin, Crush Injury + Mesenchymal Stem Cell, Crush...
Article
Because of the growth retardation in the eyes of Nannospalax xanthodon blind mole rat, some genetic and environmental adaptations have occurred in the smelling and hearing systems so that they can communicate efficiently in the galleries underground. This study was aimed to determine the histological and morphometric structure of the unique organiz...
Article
Purpose The sequelae of premature loss of ovarian function can undoubtedly have undesirable effects for a woman although radiotherapy is one of the most relevant treatment modalities for various types of malignancies. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of different doses of radiation on ovarian folliculogenesis, inflammation, and apo...
Article
Doxorubicin (DOX) is a widely used drug for the treatment of cancer,but its clinical use is limited by its liver toxicity. Administering DOX with an antioxidant has become a strategy for preventing the side effects of DOX. Although selenium (Se) is an important trace mineral, data concerning the effect of Se on DOX induced liver tissue are lacking....
Article
The ovary is a complex endocrine organ that shows significant structural and functional changes in the female reproductive system over recurrent cycles. There are different types of follicles in the ovarian tissue. The reproductive potential of each individual depends on the numbers of these follicles. However, genetic mutations, toxins, and some s...

We investigated the myotoxic effects of bupivacaine, ropivacaine and levobupivacaine on rat skeletal muscle and compared its apoptotic activity and acute effects on pro-nflammatory cytokines. We divided 40 Wistar albino rats into four equal groups. Rats were injected intramuscularly with 0.5% bupivacaine (group B), 0.5% ropivacaine (group R), 0.5%...

Background and objectives: Contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN), is an acute renal damage due to contrast agents. This study is conducted to determine the potential diagnostic value of hypoxia-inducible factor 2-alpha (HIF2-α) and to evaluate the renal protective effects of N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) and sildenafil in a rat CIN model. Material/Methods:...

Numerous grafting materials have been used to augment the maxillary sinus floor for long term stability and success for implant supported prosthesis. To enhance bone formation, adjunctive blood-born growth factor sources have gained popularity during the recent years. The present study compared the use of platelet rich fibrin (PRF) and bovine-autog...

Adriamycin (ADR) is strongly teratogenic. We investigated the effects of ADR on apoptosis and the intensity of E-cadherin expression in developing kidneys. An experimental group of rats was given 2 mg/kg/day ADR on days 6-9 of gestation and a control group was given saline on the same schedule. Embryos were decapitated on days 13, 15, 17 and 19 of...

Nitric oxide (NO) plays a signifi cant role in the development of diabetic nephropathy. We investigated the effects of an antioxidant, carnosine, on streptozotocin (STZ)-induced renal injury in diabetic rats. We used four groups of eight rats: group 1, control; group 2, carnosine treated; group 3, untreated diabetic; group 4, carnosine treated diab...
