Betaine reduces hyperhomocysteinemia and enhances 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid in ethanol-induced hyperhomocysteinemia in rabbits

Hyperhomocysteinemia is a hypothesis for the association of homocysteine with cerebrovascular diseases, neurodegenerative diseases and depression of mood. Thus, we examined whether oral betaine can act as a preventive agent in ethanol-induced hyperhomocysteinemia on the monoaminergic system. A total of 32 New Zealand White rabbits were divided into four groups (n=8); the Control group (C). The Ethanol group (E) was...

Biochemical markers in semen and their correlation with fertility hormones and semen quality among Sudanese infertile patients

Several biochemicals in semen are secreted by the accessory glands in the reproductive tract. This biochemical can be used as diagnostic predictors for the disorders in the male reproductive system. To assess the level of biochemical markers in semen, their relation to fertility hormones and spermogram among Sudanese infertile patients were studied. The biochemical markers studied were fructose, citric acid, zinc...
