The fatty liver as a metabolic disorder has involved human beings globally and is usually followed by extreme obesity, increased blood lipid, and diabetes type II. Appropriate strategies for treating this disease are prioritized by each country. The aim of the recent research was to survey the remedial potential of aqueous extract of Allium saralicum R.M. Fritsch on the high-fat diet-induced fatty liver disease in Wistar male rats. In this study, 60 rats were used. A total of 10 rats were select...

In recent years, Iranian traditional medicine has been used to control, prevent, and treat various diseases such as fatty liver. One of these plants is Allium eriophyllum Boiss. In this research, we assessed the potential of aqueous extract of A. eriophyllum in the treatment of fatty liver disease in Wistar male rats. At beginning of the study, a total of 10 rats were selected as the negative control, and 50 rats were treated with a high-fat diet for 4 months. Then, the animals were randomly div...
The indiscriminate use of Allium sativum in treatment of various diseases can pose a great danger to various body functions. Assessment of the effect of the extract on haematological and biochemical parameters can be used to explain the blood, liver and kidney related functions. Sub-chronic toxicity evaluation was done by orally administering extracts dissolved in 1% DMSO, using a drenching syringe in doses of 100, 500, 1000 and 200 mg/kg body weights of extract for 28 days. The control group wa...

Background and purpose: Methyl-tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) is an additive solvent that was adopted in reformulated gasoline to reduce environmental pollutants. It is still used in Middle East countries. It is suggested that the toxicity of MTBE may be attributed to induction of oxidative stress. Study of alteration of end organ markers and mRNA due to MTBE exposure is potentially important for public health programs. In this study we investigate the effect(s) of MTBE on liver function indices an...

Abstract The effect of novel synthetic polysaccharides such as polydextrose and galactoglucomannan to host physiology has not been well studied. This study was conducted to test the impact of synthetic polysaccharides on lipid metabolism, antioxidant activity, and the composition of gut microbiota of mice fed with high-fat diet (HFD). The results showed that HFD supplemented with polysaccharides induced positive effects in relation to serum endotoxin, blood glucose, serum and liver lipids, decre...

The effect of garlic powder at 5% and 10% level on plasma lipid profile was investigated in hypercholesterolemic rats. Male albino rats were fed a diet containing 20% fat and 1% cholesterol for two weeks to provoke hypercholesterolemia. The hypercholesterolemic rats were divided into three groups B, C and D. Group A rats were fed with normal diet, Group B were maintained on the hyper diet, Group C were fed hyper diet +5% garlic powder, Group D were fed hyper diet with +10% garlic powder. They we...

ABSTRACT Juvenile Clarias gariepinus were fed diets containing Onion Bulb (OB) and Walnut Leaf (WL) residues at different graded levels: control (0%), OB2 (0.5%), OB3 (1.0%), OB4 (1.5%), OB5 (2.0%), WL6 (0.5%), WL7 (1.0%), WL8 (1.5%) and WL9 (2.0%). Packed Cell Volume (PCV), Haemoglobin (Hb) content, Red Blood Cells (RBC) and White Blood Cells (WBC) counts were measured in test fish after 84 days of feeding. Biochemical indices such as total protein, Albumin as well as blood serum, aspartate ami...

This study aims to investigate the effects of dietary garlic powder (25 and 50 g kg−1 feed) supplementation for 6 weeks on lipid and protein oxidation biomarkers in various tissues as well as some blood biochemical parameters in common carp. Based on the present study results, serum malondialdehyde (MDA) concentrations were decreased following garlic supplementation, but the decrease was only significant (P < 0.05) in the group that received 50 g kg−1 dietary garlic compared with the control gro...
