Effect of cigarette smoking on kidney functions

Introduction The kidneys play a major role in the control of the consistency of the internal environment. The blood passing through the kidneys is first filtrated (glomerular filtration) so that all the constituents, except blood cells and plasma proteins, go into the microtubular systems. In the kidneys the useful substances are quickly reabsorbed but unwanted substances escape filtration and are actively excreted in urine. (Krungkrai S, 2001).However, renal function tests are important...

Teratogen and physiological effects on organogenesis

A human teratogen is an agent that alters the growth or structure of the developing embryo or fetus, thereby causing birth defects. The first human teratogen identified in 1941 by an ophthalmologist, Norman Gregg, was maternal rubella infection in pregnancy, which produced a triad of defects (cataracts, heart malformations, and deafness) in the infants (Gregg, 1991).  Teratogens are environmental agents such as drugs, viruses, lack of nutrients, and physical or chemical elements tha...

MECHANISM OF DIAPEDESIS

Diapedesis is the means by which cells cross the walls of intact vessels. For those interested in assessing new methods for cancer therapy, I believe there are great strides to be accomplished if more efforts are concentrated on this phenomenon.CHAPTER ONE: INTRODUCTION 9CHAPTER   TWO:  ADVANCEMENTS   IN   DIAPEDESIS,   THE   PRECEEDING   STEPSAND HOW THEY ARE REGULATED 112.0.1 ADVANCEMENTS IN DIAPEDESIS 112.0.2 CLONING 122.0.2....

INTERACTION OF THE REPRODUCTIVE AXIS WITH ENERGY BALANCE

this paper explains the relationship between the reproductive axis (Hypothalamo-pituitary-gonad axis) and reproduction. A practical application of this work is how on stress can affect fertility. it has been found that women exposed to stress, both physical and psychological have altered sexual cycles and even anovulatory cycles.

Effect and habit of sleep deprivation among medical student

In a world where streets level are raising exposure to natural sunlight is diminishing, and technology is leading to constant demand of everybody’s attention, it’s no surprise that so many people struggle is get enough sleep. What does it mean to be sleep deprived? What are some of the negative effects of sleep deprivation? 

Hypoglycemic and Antioxidant Potentials of Aqueous Extract of Eucalyptus Globulus in Experimentally-Induced Diabetic Rats

AbstractBackground: Evaluation of the medicinal uses of plants remains a growing field of research. This study investigated the effects of Eucalyptus globules on alloxan -induced diabetic rats.Materials and Methods: Thirty male albino rats were randomized into 5 groups (n=6).Group A served as the control and was maintained on standard rat chow and water ad’libitum. Diabetes was induced in Group C, D and E animals by intraperitoneal administration of alloxan monohydrate (150 mg/kg).Groups B ...

Endocrine and Neuroendocrine Factors Regulating Testicular Functions

The spermatogenic and steroidogenic functions of the testes is finely regulated by the brain (on stimulation), the master endocrine gland, and local factors produced by the testes. During intrauterine life the proliferation of primitive germ cells and the formation of the testes is carefully directed by testosterone, secreted by leydig cell on activation by human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) released by the placenta. After birth, hormonal regulation of testes stop and the testes remain quice...

Effects of aqueous extract of Basella alba leaves on haematological and biochemical parameters in albino rats

The effects of the aqueous leaf extract of Basella alba on haematological and biochemical parameterswere studied in Wistar strain albino rats. Twenty four (24) Wistar strain albino rats were randomlydistributed into four groups of six (6) rats each. Group I rats served as control and received 10 ml/kg ofnormal saline, while group II, III and IV received 60, 80 and 100 mg/kg of aqueous leaf extract of B. alba,respectively, for two weeks. Administration of the extract was done orally. At the en...

Virgin Coconut Oil: Remedial Effects on Renal Dysfunction in Diabetic Rats

Renal dysfunction is nowa prevalent complication of diabetesmellitus. Therefore, this study was carried out to evaluate the remedialeffects of virgin coconut oil (VCO) on renal dysfunction in diabetic rats. Fifteen albinoWistar rats were divided into 3 groups thatcomprise normal control group (Group I) and diabetic control group (Group II) fed with normal rat chows and a diabetic test group(Group III) fed with 10% VCO diet. Group II and Group III were made diabetic by single intraperitoneal i...

Dietary Consumption of Virgin Coconut Oil Ameliorates Lipid Profiles in Diabetic Rats

Virgin coconut oil (VCO) is a saturated fat with promising antidiabetic properties but its ameliorative effect on lipid profilesin diabetics is rarely reported. Therefore, in this study, a total of fifteen (15) male rats weighing 200–250 g were divided into 3experimental groups (𝑛 = 5).Group I (control) andGroup II (diabetic control group) were fed a normal rat chowwhile Group III(diabetic test group) was fed a 10% VCO diet for 3 weeks. Group II and Group III were made diabetic by intrap...

Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) supplemented diet ameliorates blood glucose, renal tissue and antioxidant enzymes in diabetic rats

Untreated hyperglycaemia leads to kidney damage through oxidative stress of the kidney tissues with resultantcompromise of the antioxidant enzymes. According to research, Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) has been reported tohave hypoglycaemic and anti-diabetic properties. Therefore, this study was designed to investigate theameliorative effects of VCO supplemented diet on blood glucose, renal tissues and antioxidant enzymes indiabetic rats. The study was carried out on fifteen male rats weighing 150 ...

Virgin coconut oil dietary consumption ameliorates abnormal haemostatic parameters in diabetic rats

Introduction: Virgin coconut oil (VCO), a saturated fat,has been reported to have anti-diabetic properties and thereis dearth of information on its potency to correct abnormalhaemostatic parameters associated with diabetic patients.Objectives: Therefore, this study was carried out toinvestigate effect of VCO consumption on abnormalhaemostatic parameters in diabetic rats.Materials & Methods: A total of fifteen (15) male ratsweighing 200–250g were divided into three (3) experimentalgroups: No...
