Abstract

The present study was undertaken to search out thebeneficial effect of magnetized water on serumantioxidant, lipid profile and total protein of adult male rabbits. Twenty adult male rabbits were randomly divided into two equal groups and were treated daily for 60 days as follows:Group C:Rabbits of this group were allowed to ad libitumsupplyofdrinking water (control group),Group MG:Rabbits of this group were allowed to ad libitum supply of magnetic water.Fasting blood (for 8-12 hrs) samples were drawn by cardiac puncture technique at different times 0, 30 and 60 days of experiment for measuring the following parameters. Serum glutathione concentration (GSH), lipid profile including serum triacylglycerol (TAG), total cholesterol - (TC), high density lipoprotein - cholesterol (HDL-C), low density lipoprotein - cholesterol (LDL-C) and very low density lipoprotein cholesterol - (VLDL-C), total serum protein concentrations (TSP). The result revealed that drinking of magnetic water had beneficial effect on some physiological aspects manifested by a significant elevation in serum GSH, HDL-C and total serum proteins concentration. In addition to significant suppression in serums TC, TAG, LDL-C, and VLDL-C concentrations .In conclusion the results of this study pointed to the prevalence of magnetic water upon normal drinking water in all measures issued.

صممت هذه الدراسة لمعرفة الدور الأيجابي للماء الممغنط على موانع الأكسدة ،الصوره الدمويه للدهون والبروتين الكلي في الأرانب السليمة. تم أستخدام (20) من ذكورالارانب البالغة قُسّمت عشوائيا الى مجموعتين متساويتين وعوملت كألتالي لمدة60 يوم: اعطيت المجموعة الاولى ماء الشرب العادي وعدت كمجموعة سيطره (Group C) ،في حين أعطيت حيوانات المجموعة الثانية الماء الممغنط ( Group MG).تم جمع عينات الدم في الفترات 0 و 30 و 60 يوم من التجربة ,وتم سحب الدم بطريقة الوخز القلبي لغرض دراسة المعايير التالية : قياس تركيزكل من الكلوتاثايون (GSH) , الكوليستيرول الكلي ( (TCوكلسيرول ثلاثي الأسيل)(TAGو الكوليستيرول في الشحوم البروتنية ذات الكثافة العالية( (HDL-Cوالكثافة الواطئةLDL-C)) والواطئةجدا(VLDL-C), بالاضافة الى تركيز بروتين مصل الدم الكلي (TSP . اظهرت نتائج هذه الدراسة ان تعرض الحيوانات للماء الممغنط له تاثير ايجابي على بعض المعايير الفلسلجيه والتي تمثلت بحصول زياده معنويه في تراكيز GSH و HDL-C و TSP. بالاضافة الى حصول انخفاض معنوي في تراكيز كل من TC، TAG، LDL-C و VLDL-C في مصل الدم. لقد اكدت نتائج هذه الدراسة التاثير الأيجابي للماء الممغنط وتغلبه على ماء الشربفي كل المعايير المدروسة.

Abstract

ABSTRACT:BACKGROUND:Osteoarthritis is a form of arthritis that features the breakdown and eventual loss of the cartilage of one or more joints. Cartilage is a protein substance that serves as a "cushion" between the bones of the joints. Among the over 100 different types of arthritis conditions, osteoarthritis is the most common, affecting over 25 million people in the United States. Osteoarthritis occurs more frequently as we age. Osteoarthritis is abbreviated as OA or referred to as degenerative arthritis or degenerative joint disease (DJD). Osteoarthritis commonly affects the hands, feet, spine, and large weight-bearing joints, such as the hips and knees. Osteoarthritis usually has no known cause and is referred to as primary osteoarthritis. When the cause of the osteoarthritis is known, the condition is referred to as secondary osteoarthritis.OBJECTIVE:The main objective of this study is to evaluate the association between the levels of Interleukin-8 and some antioxidant in patients with OA.PATIENTS AND METHODS:This study was performed during the period from April 2010 to February 2011, and included 50 patients with OA according to the American College of Rheumatology ACR 1990; their age range from 40-60 years with mean age of 46.66 ± 2.83 years. These patients were matched by age and sex to 25 healthy control subjects with the mean age of 48.32 ± 2.92 years. Blood samples were taken from each individual and separated for the estimation of IL-8 and some antioxidants levels using enzyme – liked immunosorbent assay (ElIZA) technique and colorimetric method. The laboratory tests were done in Teaching Laboratories of the Medical City and the Department of Physiological Chemistry / College of Medicine University of Baghdad.RESULTS:The level of IL-8 and Ceruloplasmin (CP) in serum of patients with OA was significantly higher than in serum of healthy control while the level of Glutathione (GSH) and S.uric acid in serum of OA patients was significantly higher than healthy control and there is no significant difference in level of serum albumin between the patients and control.CONCLUSION:It is clear from this study that there is a relationship between the levels of IL-8, CP, GSH, and S.uric acid concentrations and OA while there is no relationship between S.albumin concentration and OA disease.

Abstract

Background: Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common gastrointestinal condition characterized by abdominal pain and cramps; changes in bowel movements (diarrhea, constipation, or both); gassiness; bloating; nausea; and other symptoms. There is no cure for IBS; however, dietary changes, stress management, and sometimes medications are often able to eliminate or substantially reduce its symptoms.Purpose: It is well do documented that disturbances of oxidant-antioxidant balance in psycho-somatic disease especially in irritable bowel syndrome.Materials and Methods: Glutathione and total thiols were studied in twenty patients aged 18-35 years, compared with twenty sex and age matched healthy subjects.Results: Serum glutathione and total thiol groups levels were significantly decreased in irritable bowel syndrome(IBS) than healthy controls.

نظرة عامة عن المرض: تهيّج القولون العصبي هو مرض يتميز بالألمِ والتشنجاتِ البطنيةِ؛ تغييرات في حركاتِ الأمعاءِ (إسهال، إمساك، أَو كلاهما)؛ الانتفاخ؛ الغثيان؛ وأعراض أخرى. ليس هناك علاج لهذا المرض؛ ولكن تغيير نمط الغذاء، التقليل من إلا جهاد قدر الإمكان، واستخدام بعض الأدوية في أغلب الأحيان قادرة على إزالة أَو تَخفيض أعراضِ مرض تهيج القولون العصبي.الغرض: دراسة تأثر بعض مضادات الأكسدة بنواتج الاكسدة وعلاقتها بتهيج القولون العصبي كونه احد الأمراض النفسجسمية.العينات: تم قياس الكلوتاثيون والثايول الكلي لعشرين مريض تتراوح اعمارهم بين 18-35 سنة, مقارنة بعشرين شخص تتراوح اعمارهم بين 18-35 سنة كمجموعة سيطرة.النتائج: وجدت الدراسة ان هناك انخفاضا معنويا في قيم الكلوتاثيون والثايول الكلي لدى مرضى تهيج القولون العصبي مقارنة بمجموعة السيطرة.
