Abstract

The present study was aimed to determine the ameliorative effect of caffeine onBody weight and lipid profile in male rats treated with hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) .Seventy Two adult male rats were used in this study . The study included twoexperiments ,in each experiments 36 males were randomly assigned two six equal groupsof six animals in each group .The animals in both experiments were treated with thesame substances and doses for each group as follows .Group one (control) animals weredrenched normal saline ,Group two animals were treated (5.63 mg/kg. Bw )H2O2 dailyby oral gavage also group three , animals were treated with low dose caffeine (150 mg/kg Bw) daily .Group four , animals were treated with high dose caffeine (250 mg /kgBw) daily . Group five . animals were treated (5.63 mg/kg. Bw )H2O2 dose after 1 hanimals were given low dose of caffeine (150 mg/kg Bw) .Group Six animal weretreated with H2O2 dose(5.63 mg/kg Bw) each rat after one hour was given high dose ofcaffeine (250 mg /Kg Bw) . The first experiments lasted for one month and secondexperiments lasted for two months . At the end of the two experiments, animals of allgroup were sacrificed under chloroform anesthesia .Blood samples were collected from the heart directly by cardiac puncture and the serum was separated to measure the lipidprofile .The result revealed a significant decreased in body weight gain in H2O2in first andsecond experiments compared with control group . While a significant improvementswere recorded in body weight gain in all treated groups compared with H2O2 group butstill significantly lower compared with those of control group. A significant increase inTC ,TG and LDL-c were recorded in H2O2 group in both experiments compared withcontrol group on the other hand no significant difference was recorded in HDL-c levelin H2O2group in first experiments while a significant decreased was recorded in secondexperiments compared with control group . Finally a significant degrees ofimprovement were observed in lipid profile in all treated group compared with H2O2 .

Abstract

background: NAFLD patients had higher anti IgG H pylori and might be a clue that H pylori infection had a strong link the pathogenesis of early stage NAFLD mostly had simple steatosis. H pylori infection had a role in pathogenesis of IR and NAFLD. H pylori is strong inducer of pro inflammatory cytokine (IL6, IL8, TNF- α).Serum triglyceride was higher in H pylori positive group and NASH. Recent study have investigated weather H pylori induce insulin resistance mediated through fetuin which decrease in patients with sero positive Hpylori IgG patients.Patient and method: Fifty six patients were collecting randomly as a case of fatty liver by ultrasound In Imam AL- Hussain Medical City in Karbala .Obese, DM, alcoholic patients, renal and hepatic diseases were exclude from this study. Fasting blood sample was taken and sent for IgG antibody H pylori, lipid profile, liver function test including ALT and AST.Result: The mean age of patients was 45+10 and majority (65%) was females.(67)% of patients who were fatty liver had Hpylori sero positive IgG (p value<0.05).(66)% of patients who were fatty liver had normal liver function ALT mean±SD(31±7) and only 34% had increased liver function, ALT mean SD±(110±13)with p value<0.01.(71)% of patients who were fatty liver and H pylori sero positive IgG had normal liver function mostly ALT mean±SD (29±10) in comparism with 29% who had increase liver function mostly ALT mean ±SD(98±18) p value <0.01.(83)% of fatty liver patients had hyperlipidaemia mean±SD (290±20), (395±22) respectively p value<0.01. (75)% of fatty liver patients with H pylori sero positive IgG had hyperlipidaemia mean±SD (279±15),(320±20) respectively p value <0.01.Conclusion This study shown significant correlation between chronic H pylori infection and NAFLD .The pathogenic mediator include fetuin-A, TNF-α and adiponectin and on long term IR.

Abstract

Dyslipidemia and oxidative modifications of lipid are frequently associated in patients with chronic kidney diseases (CKD) and considered the most important risk factors for cardiovascular events. Melatonin is a well known potent antioxidant and has beneficial effect on lipid metabolism. the study was designed to evaluate if Melatonin could improve lipid profile and ameliorates lipid peroxidation. This single blind placebo controlled clinical study carried out on 41 patients with CKD who were randomized into two groups, control groups (n=20) those who received placebo cap and melatonin group those who received 5mg melatonin (n=21). Lipid profile [total cholesterol (TC), triglyceride (TG), high-density lipoprotein (HDL-C), low-density lipoprotein (LDL-C)] and parameters of lipid peroxidation [oxidized LDL (oxLDL) and malondialdehyde (MDA) were measured before and after 12 weeks of the treatment. After 12 weeks of treatment, melatonin significantly increased HDL-C and decreased LDL-C compared to the initial value. The elevation in HDL-C and reduction in LDL-C were significantly different from that in placebo group. Also both oxLDL and MDA levels significantly lowered by melatonin compared to the baseline and to the placebo group. Collectively, the results of our study showed that melatonin has advantageous effect on lipid profile and inhibit lipid peroxidation in patients with CKD.

Abstract

Background: Sodium valproate has turn out to be the most commonly prescribed antiepileptic drug (AED) worldwide. It is also prescribed to diabetic mellitus (DM) patient for treatment of neuropathic pain. Changes in lipid levels and lipid metabolism usually accompanied with diabetic disease leading to increases in circulating levels of free fatty acids (FFA), triglycerides and dense low-density lipoprotein together with reduced levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels.Objective: To investigate the effect of sodium valproate on lipid profile and glucose level and highlight these effects with and without diabetic disease.Methods: Thirty-two healthy, local domestic rabbits of both sexes were used in the present study. Animals were allocated into two main groups, group A and B. According to induction of diabetes both groups received the same food and put in the same environmental condition. blood glucose level and lipid profile has been done for all groups.Results: There was significant difference in the blood glucose level in the normoglycemic rabbits treated with sodium valproate (200 mg/kg) compared to the untreated (negative control group). The effect of valproate was also observed by the significant difference of blood glucose level in alloxan-induced diabetic rabbits treated with sodium valproate (200 mg) compared with the positive control group. Also, we have statistically observed the significant increase in total cholesterol (TC), low density lipoprotein – cholesterol (LDL-C), and triglyceride (TG) levels in normoglycemic rabbits treated with sodium valproate (200 mg/kg) compare to the negative control group, however, there is no significant difference regarding the high-density lipoprotein – cholesterol (HDL-C) level. As for the alloxan-induced diabetic rabbits, there was a statistically significant difference observed indicated an increase in level of TC, LDL-C, and TG and a decrease in HDL-C.Conclusion: The effect of sodium valproate on glucose level and lipid profile in diabetic rabbits could reflect a possible hypoglycemic and dyslipidemic effects which could be dangerous if the patient is on anti- diabetic drugs with or without cardiovascular accident, although it may be dose-dependent and still falls in the hypothesis field but further experimental studies on human are needed to explore this theory.Keywords: Sodium valproate, anticonvulsants, glucose, lipidCitation: Abdul Bari MA.

Abstract

Worry, anxiety through Study and preparative to exam may lead to mental stress. Mental stress may contribute to oxidative stress in the body which is the change in balance between oxidants and antioxidants.In this study a concentration of Malondialdehyde (MDA) as a lipid oxidation biomarker, lipid profile and some blood parameters like Minmum Inhibitory dilution (MID) were estimated in twenty chemistry and biology students at the day of exam as Stress Condition (SC) compared with the same parameters which obtained from the same students during the university vacation after a month of doing the latest exam as non-Stress Condition (nSC).A significant increase in MDA (p=0.0019), Total Cholesterol (p<0.05), Triglyceride (p<0.05), Low Density Lipoprotein LDL-Cholesterol (p<0.05), Very Low density lipoprotein VLDL-cholesterol (p<0.05) and A significant decrease in High - Density Lipoprotein HDL - Cholesterol (p<0.05), HDL-Cholesterol to total cholesterol ratio(p=0.0012) in stress condition were observed when compared with “non-stress” conditions. Also there were high significant decreases in lymphocyte and minimum inhibitory dilution (MID) (p=0.0001, p<0.0001 respectively) and significant increases in granulocyte and platelets (PLT) (P=0.0113, P=0.0031 respectively) in stress condition compared to non-stress condition. Whereas no significant changes in total WBCs and RBCs in stress and non-stress conditions. These results suggested that during university examinations when students are under mental stress or psychiatric disorder may put them at risk of developing inflammatory disorders like atherosclerosis and/or coronary arteries disorders.

Abstract

Breast cancer is most common cancer among women worldwide. In this study, the association between serum concentration of cholesterol, triglycerides( TG|), low density lipoproteins (LDL), high density lipoproteins (HDL),( VLDL) very low density lipoproteins and breast cancer has been investigated. These case control study include three groups: thirty women with breast cancer and fifteen healthy women as control group. Serum lipids: cholesterol,( LDL),( HDL) and (VLDL) were analyzed in all subjects of study using conventional method. The results of this study showed that there was a significant increase in the rate of the levels of total cholesterol (TC), triglycerides (TG), low density lipoproteins( LDL),( VLDL) very low density lipoproteins in the work group when compared with control (P=0.028, P=0.017, P=0.024 and P=0.033) respectively, except high density lipoproteins (HDL). We conclude that high concentration of cholesterol, triglyceride, (LDL), and (VLDL) may be associated with breast cancer.

Abstract

Background and objective: Ischemic stroke is classically characterized as a neurological deficit attributed to an acute focal injury of the central nervous system by a vascular cause, it occurs as a result of obstruction by a blood clot (thrombus) or plugs within a blood vessel supplying blood to the brain. In this study, we investigated the association of von Willebrand factor-antigen and serum lipids with ischemic stroke.Methods: The following retrospective study was conducted on 138 participants; 88 patients with ischemic stroke and 50 healthy controls.Results: In crude analyses, Plasma von Willebrand factor antigen, fasting serum Total cholesterol, Triglycerides and LDL-C were significantly higher in patients with ischemic stroke than in controls (P <0.001, P <0.001, P = 0.003, P <0.001, respectively), while the difference in the level of serum HDL-C between patients with ischemic stroke and control was significantly lower (P = 0.023).Conclusion: These data suggest that von Willebrand factor, total cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL-C and HDL-C gives some contribution to stroke risk even in the elderly and that von Willebrand factor antigen and lipid profile assessment must be taken into account in estimating the individual risks of stroke.

Abstract

Background and objective: Myocardial infarction is the irreversible death (necrosis) of heart muscle secondary to prolonged lack of oxygen supply (ischemia), when the blood supply to a part of the heart is interrupted, most commonly due to rupture of a vulnerable plaque. The resulting ischemia or oxygen shortage causes damage and potential death of heart tissue. It is a medical emergency, and the leading cause of death worldwide. In this study, we investigated the association of serum C-reactive protein and serum lipid profile with myocardial infarction.Methods: A cross-sectional study was carried out from January to May 2016 in College of Medicine, Hawler Medical University. The study involved 108 patients with myocardial infarction (70 men and 38 women) in comparison with 50 healthy individuals as the control group (29 men and 21 women).Results: The levels of serum C-reactive protein were significantly higher (P <0.05) in patients with myocardial infarction in both genders when compared with the control group. There was no statistically significant difference in serum total cholesterol, serum triglyceride and serum LDL-C in patients with myocardial infarction and control group. Regarding serum high-density lipoprotein (HDL-C), there was a statistically significant difference (P <0.01) in patients with myocardial infarction when compared with the control group.Conclusion: C-reactive protein may play an important role in providing clinicians and biochemists with valuable information regarding diagnosis and following up the patient with suspected myocardial infarction.
