Background: Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and its derivatives are used in several aesthetic, dental, and musculoskeletal procedures. Their efficacy is primarily due to the release of various growth factors (GF), interleukins, cytokines, and white blood cells. However, the PRP preparation methods are highly variable, and studies lack consistency in re...

Methotrexate (MTX) is used as an anticancer drug in many types of cancer associated with organ toxicities. It generates free radicals responsible for tissue damage in organs like testis. Coconut water, a natural drink known for its nutritive values also possess components, which are rich in antioxidants. The present study was a novel study to evalu...

Introduction: Combination of didactic lecture, practical demonstration and performing experiments by students is followed in medicine, dentistry and bachelor of pharmaceutical sciences. The purpose of this study was to assess the attitudes of nursing students towards practical demonstration in physiology. Material and methods: Seventy three nurs...
Article
Pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) is a global disease affecting about one third of the world's population with its attendant mortality and morbidity. Acute phase proteins have been used in monitoring the progress of infection. In the present study serum ceruloplasmin and albumin levels were determined in 75 patients of tuberculosis, of which 25 were fre...

Iodination is the process of substitution or addition of iodine atoms on organic compounds. The iodine is reactive with all the three major biochemical constituents namely proteins, lipids and carbohydrates. Present study was done to know the relationship between iodine uptake and glycated hemoglobin (GlyHb) levels in patients with diabetes mellitu...
Article
Diabetes mellitus (DM) is associated with hyperglycemia and oxidative stress. It is associated with various life threatening complications like nephropathy, retinopathy, atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease which adds up to the mortality among diabetics. These complications develop due to late presentation of the disease and delayed diagnosi...
Article
Diabetes mellitus (DM) is one of the commonest endocrine disorders encountered in clinical practice. It is characterized by hyperglycaemia due to an absolute or relative lack of insulin and/or insulin resistance. DM is the major cause of renal morbidity and mortality and diabetic nephropathy is one of chronic kidney failure. The most common lesions...

Copper is one of the trace metals which has many important physiological functions, redox active element and for maintaining thyroid activity. Copper is known to effect lipid metabolism. Increase in serum copper level is associated with decrease in concentration of total cholesterol (TC), this is due to down regulation of both biosynthetic enzymes...
Article
Full-text available
Diseases of thyroid gland can affect nearly every function of our body. Thyroid hormone binding transcription factors, which are essential for modulation of gene expression, contain zinc bound to cysteine residues and also thyroid hormones influence zinc metabolism by affecting zinc absorption and excretion. Zinc is required for enzymes involved in...

Iodine is an essential component of the thyroid hormones, which are necessary for normal growth, development and metabolism during gestation, infancy and throughout life. Iodination is the process of substitution or addition of iodine atoms on organic compounds. The present study is done to find the correlation between the iodine uptake and the ant...
Article
The main aim of this study was to evaluate the role of Plasma advanced oxidation protein product (AOPP), protein carbonyl as indicator of oxidative stress and reduced glutathione, total thiols, albumin as antioxidant status among epileptics. 25 patients with history of epilepsy on treatment in the age group of 20-60 years were compared with 25 norm...

Objective: To evaluate the antiinflammatory activity of orally administered ethanolic extract of Tephrosia purpurea in acute and subacute inflammation in rats. Methods: An ethanolic extract of Tephrosia purpurea was prepared. Carrageenan induced paw edema and cotton pellet granuloma were the models for acute and subacute inflammation respectively....

Trace elements are extremely important for normal metabolism. Copper is one of the trace metals which has important physiological function in maintaining thyroid activity. Copper is known to effect lipid metabolism. Increase in serum copper level is associated with decrease in concentration of total cholesterol (TC). Thyroid hormone binding transcr...
