Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids confer protection against gentamicin-induced testicular injury: Novel insights into possible mechanisms

Background: Gentamicin (GM) is an aminoglycoside that has harmful effects on the male germ cells and sperm quality. N-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFA) are natural antioxidants that influence cell signaling and inflammation. Heme-oxygenase-1 (HO-1) and heat shock proteins (HSP) aid in cellular protection against cellular insults. This study aimed to explore the potential alleviating influences of treatment with n-3...

Impact of Heat stress on Blood and Serum Biochemistry Parameters in Rats

Twenty mature albino rats randomly assigned to two groups (n=10) were used for the study. Group A was exposed to the sun while group B was kept under a shade. The study was for 28 days. At the end of the study the effects of heat stress on haematology and serum biochemistry were determined. There was a significant increase (p > 0.05) in the packed cell volume of group A when compared to group B. Red blood cell counts of...
