Trichloroethylene (TCE) was exposed in the presence of the spin trap N- tert -butyl-α-phenyl nitrone (PBN, 0.1 M) to ionizing radiation from two different sources in an attempt to determine the origin of the spin-trapped radicals generating the EPR spectra in precision cut liver slices. TCE...
1 Rifampicin (RMP) induced hepatic injury was investi gated in growing rats. The interaction of moderate and severe protein-energy malnutrition (PEM) was also investigated. 2 Status of oxidative/antioxidative profile was studied by the mechanistic approach, to enumerate the nature of injury. 3...
1 The effect of Egyptian cobra (Naja haje) venom on the normal electrical activity of the cardiac muscles (ECG) and arterial blood pressure of envenomated rats were investigated in this study. 2 Rats were divided into three groups. The first group was injected im with saline and considered as...
