Quantitative determination of fumonisin B1 in biological material.
The mycotoxin, fumonisin B1 is produced by the mould Fusarium moniliforme, a common contaminant of maize and maize products. Small doses (mg/kg) of ingested fumonisin B1 have been shown to cause diseases and even death in ...
The effects of insulin and Syzygium aromaticum-derived oleanolic acid containing dermal patches on kidney function and renal expression of glucose transporters in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats.
Introduction The tight glycaemic control required to attenuate chronic complications in type 1 diabetes mellitus requires multiple daily injections of bolus insulin which have been reported to be associated with Na+ ...
Syzygium aromaticum-derived triterpenes modulate intestinal glucose handling in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats.
Polyphagia in diabetes mellitus ascribed to elevated plasma ghrelin concentrations is associated with prolonged postprandial hyperglycaemia due to increased activities of intestinal carbohydrate hydrolyzing enzymes and ...
Transdermal delivery of insulin and Syzygium aromaticum-derived oleanolic acid by dermal patches in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats : effects on some selected metabolic parameters.
The tight glycaemic control required to attenuate chronic complications in type 1 diabetes mellitus often requires numerous daily injections of bolus insulin. Typically insulin is administered by subcutaneous needle ...

The effect of sildenafil citrate and kraussianone-2 on pre-eclampsia-like manifestations in Sprague-Dawley rats.
Pre-eclampsia, often described as toxaemia of pregnancy, historically represents one of the most widely investigated conditions relating to human reproduction. To date no firm cure has been found and a clear, well defined ...
Optimisation of an analytical method for the analysis of folic acid derivatives in biological materials.
Folic acid is a water-soluble, B-complex vitamin influencing a number of biological processes in humans and particularly important in the prevention of neural tube defects (associated with spinal bifida) in unborn children. ...
Mycotoxins in food with particular reference to fumonisin B1 : their health impact on a Kranskop rural community, KwaZulu Natal.
The use of the multi-mycotoxin screen based on dialysis to analyze foods and feeds for mycotoxins, is well documented. This study investigated the possibility of incorporating FB I into the screen. Maize meal (25g) was ...
The effect of vitamin B-6 deficiency on the bioavailability of zinc in the rat.
No abstract available.
Evaluation of the efficacy of transdermal delivery of chloroquine on malaria parasites in Plasmodium berghei-infected male Sprague-Dawley rats : effects on blood glucose and renal electrolyte handling.
Malaria remains a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in tropical regions of the world despite the numerous global efforts to control and manage the disease through prevention and drug intervention. An estimated 300–500 ...
