Effect of Lycopene Application in Rats with Experimental Diabetes Using Lipoprotein, Paraoxonase and Cytokines

Effect of Lycopene Application in Rats with Experimental Diabetes Using Lipoprotein, Paraoxonase... This study was conducted with the purpose of researching the effect of lycopene application on lipoprotein, paraoxonase (PON) and cytokines that are projected to be used in the diagnosis and treatment of diabetes by making experimental diabetes. At the end of a 1-month trial period, under ether anesthesia with jelly tubes, blood samples were taken from rat hearts. Blood samples were centrifuged and serum was obtained. From the serum samples, HbA1c, paraoxonase activity, lipoprotein levels and cytokines were determined. HbA1c levels and PON activity were found to be p < 0.001. At the triglyceride level, with regard to the control group, in all the groups a significant rise occurred (p ≤ 0.001). At the cholesterol level, with regard to the control group, a decline was observed in the other groups (p < 0.05). At the VLDL level, with regard to the control group, a significant rise was observed in the other groups (p < 0.05). At the HDL (p < 0.001) and LDL (p < 0.05) levels, with regard to the control group, a significant decline was observed in the other groups. At the TNF-α, IL-2, IL-6 and IL-10 levels no difference was found (p > 0.05). Experimental diabetes models have an important place in analyzing diabetes complications and determining treatment approaches. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Journal of Membrane Biology Springer Journals
