The goal of this study was to investigate the effects of three different extracts of Saussurea costus roots (ethanol, methanol, and water) as a food additive in alleviating the harmful effect of sodium nitrite in rat meals. Thirty-five adult male rats were divided into five groups as follows: control, sodium nitrite (NaNO2; 75 mg/kg BW, single oral...

The present study was designed to investigate the nephroprotective effect of bromelain against oxidative stress stimulated by aluminium chloride in rats. Rats were grouped as follows; group one was used as control while groups 2, 3 and 4 were treated orally with bromelain (250 mg/kg, daily), aluminium chloride (AlCl3; 34 mg/kg BW, every other day)...

Numerous avenues are currently being investigated to curtail multidrug resistance. The antibacterial activity of naturally derived agents, including thyme essential oil, chitosan and a probiotic Lactobacillus strain was screened against clinically resistant isolates of Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli and Klebsiella. Thyme essential oil was...

The antibacterial activity of essential oils hydrodistilled from local anise, coriander, cumin, marjoram, rosemary and thyme were screened against a group of food-borne pathogens comprising Staphylococcus aureus, Listeria monocytogenes, Escherichia coli, Escherichia coli O157:H7, Salmonella Typhimurium and Bacillus cereus. All the tested bacterial...

Coal tar is a significant product generated from coal pyrolysis. Coal tar can be utilized as raw materials for various industries. It is also a type of raw material from which phenols, naphthalenes, and anthracene can be extracted. The present study was designed to investigate the possibility of coal tar creosote to induce oxidative stress and bioc...

The prevalence of enterotoxigenic Staphylococcus aureus was investigated among 200 participants working in three different food processing plants in Egypt. Using skin swabs, 75 (38%) of the 200 tested persons were positive for the presence of S. aureus. Of the S. aureus positive persons, 28 (14%) harboured S. aureus produced staphylococcal enteroto...

Saliva, a thick, colorless, fluid that is constantly present in the humans mouth. It is composed of water, mucus, proteins, mineral salts, and amylase. As saliva circulates in the mouth cavity it picks up food debris, bacterial cells, and white blood cells. Three major pairs of salivary glands and many smaller glands scattered in the surface tissue...

Food handlers play a major role in the transmission of food borne diseases which represents a global health burden. Carriage of Staphylococcus aureus, in general, and enterotoxigenic strains, in part icular, is an important risk factor for the contamination of food. This study was undertaken to determine the prevalence and risk factors associated w...
Article
Xenobiotics such as insecticides are metabolized to more or less toxic metabolites by drug-metabolizing enzymes including cytochrome P450 (Cyp P450), cytochrome b5 (Cyp b5), NADPH-cytochrome c reductase (Cyt.c R), N-nitrosdimethylamine-N-demethylase I (NDMA-dI), glutathione (GSH), glutathione s-transferase (GST), and glutathione reductase (GR). The...

The present work compared chemical and biological treatment methods to achieve the most efficient treatment for the reduction or elimination of phosphorus and nitrogen from mixed industrial-domestic wastewaters. Batch chemical precipitation by ferric chloride and aluminum sulfate (alum) and a continuous biological suspended growth system were inves...

Cadmium is a well-known human carcinogen and a potent nephrotoxin. Lipid peroxidation is involved in cadmium-related toxicity. Vitamin E and beta-carotene are effective antioxidants and free radical scavengers. Therefore, the present study was carried out to investigate the potential protective effects of vitamin E and beta-carotene alone or in com...
Article
Dietary flavonoids appear to play a role in the prevention of a number of chronic diseases such as cancer and cardiovascular disease and the soy isoflavones have been the focus of particular. Consumption of soy isoflavones may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease both through reduction in serum lipids and by the antioxidant properties. We have...

Role of alpha-tocopherol (vitamin E), beta-carotene and/or their combination as antioxidants against the toxicity of fenvalerate on blood hematology, free radicals, biochemical parameters, and semen quality were studied in male rats. Fenvalerate (20 mg/kg BW), vitamin E (100 mg/kg BW), beta-carotene (10 mg/kg BW), and vitamin E plus beta-carotene (...
Article
The objective of this study was to determine the effect of either 2.5 mg/kg Body Weight or 5 mg/kg Body Weight (BW) doses of isoflavones on semen quality, testosterone levels, lipid peroxidation and semen biochemistry of male New Zealand White rabbits. Animals were given both 2.5 mg/kg BW and 5 mg/kg BW doses of isoflavones. The tested doses were g...

The adsorption isotherm of nicotine on humic acid ? surface was found to be multiphase according to the applied concentrations of nicotine. Each phase was characterized by its own change in free energy and represented a mechanism of interaction. At low concentrations, the isotherm showed a H?curve of high affinity between both reactants as a result...
Article
The mucilages of certain organs of plants abundant in Egypt viz: seeds of Ceratonia siliqua L., Trigonella foenum-graecum L., Corchorus olitorius L., corms of Colocasia esculenta Schott. and fruits of Cordia myxa L. were studied. Each plant organ was pretreated to remove interfering substances and the extracted mucilage (by cold and hot methods) wa...
Article
The polysaccharides of stems of Opuntia ficusindica, seeds of Tamarindus indica and seeds of Cydonia oblonga were found to consist of a mixture of mucilage and pectin. The preparation of each polysaccharide could be achieved in an almost pure state. The mucilage could be extracted with cold acidulated water while the pectin was obtained by heating...
Article
A phytochemical investigation of four Salsola species wildly grown in the Egyptian desert viz. S. tetrandra, S. kali, S. longifolia and S. rigida was undertaken. The study of the carbohydrates revealed the presence of fructose, glucose, arabinose and rhamnose in the four species. The study of the lipids of the four plants showed the presence of ole...
Article
The alkaloids of the most common Egyptian Salsola species were studied. Four bases were isolated from S. tetrandra: a major constituent, triacetonamine and two other minor bases as well as betaine. TLC showed that the same compounds were present in S. kali, S. longifolia and S. rigida.
