Materials and Methods: Thirty male albino rats were randomized into 5 groups (n=6).
Group A served as the control and was maintained on standard rat chow and water ad’libitum.
In the kidneys the useful substances are quickly reabsorbed but unwanted substances escape filtration and are actively excreted in urine. The first human teratogen identified in 1941 by an ophthalmologist, Norman Gregg, was maternal rubella infection in pregnancy, which produced a triad of defects (cataracts, heart malformations, and deafness) in the infants (Gregg, 1991).
Teratogens are environmental agents such as drugs, viruses, lack of nutrients, and physical or chemical elements tha...
Diapedesis is the means by which cells cross the walls of intact vessels.
For those interested in assessing new methods for cancer therapy, I believe there are great strides to be accomplished if more efforts are concentrated on this phenomenon.According to research, Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) has been reported tohave hypoglycaemic and anti-diabetic properties.Therefore, this study was designed to investigate theameliorative effects of VCO supplemented diet on blood glucose, renal tissues and antioxidant enzymes indiabetic rats.Diabetes was induced in Group C, D and E animals by intraperitoneal administration of alloxan monohydrate (150 mg/kg). The spermatogenic and steroidogenic functions of the testes is finely regulated by the brain (on stimulation), the master endocrine gland, and local factors produced by the testes.During intrauterine life the proliferation of primitive germ cells and the formation of the testes is carefully directed by testosterone, secreted by leydig cell on activation by human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) released by the placenta.Medical Sciences Biochemistry Pharmaceutical Sciences Clinical Sciences Genetics & Molecular Biology Immunology & Microbiology Bioinformatics & Systems Biology Neuroscience & Psychology Engineering Business & Management General Science Agri and Aquaculture Nursing & Health Care Chemistry Food & Nutrition Cell Physiology Clinical Anatomy Comparative Anatomy Comparative Physiology Developmental Anatomy Forensic Anatomy Gastro-endocrinology Human Anatomy Human Physiology Neuro-anatomy Neurobiology Renal Physiology Surgical Anatomy Human Physiology is described as science of life as it deals with the study of the working of human system.Human physiology lets us know how the cell, muscle, organ work does together; it describes the mechanism from the molecular level including the cell function integrating the behavior of whole body.Therefore, in this study, a total of fifteen (15) male rats weighing 200–250 g were divided into 3experimental groups (𝑛 = 5).Group I (control) and Group II (diabetic control group) were fed a normal rat chowwhile Group III(diabetic test group) was fed a 10% VCO diet for 3 weeks.After birth, hormonal regulation of testes stop and the testes remain quice...TABLE OF CONTENTS Preface Certification Dedication Acknowledgements Table of contents List of tables List of figures Abstract CHAPTER ONE 1.
