Methotrexate (MTX) is a widely administered drug to treat inflammatory, and autoimmune diseases and malignant tumors. Sadly, its use harms several organs, including kidney impairment. This study aimed to determine if the ethanolic extract of Paeonia officinalis (P. officinalis) roots might protect the kidneys from the damage caused by MTX. GC-MS technique investigated the analysis of active constituents of P. officinalis root extract. Rats were administered P. officinalis extract

The study discusses the challenges associated with the HNSCC metastasis and aims to identify hub genes related to the Cancer Stem Cells and metastasis in HNSCC through bioinformatics analysis. HNSCC is a prevalent type of cancer having a low five-year rate of survival, largely due to advanced stages at diagnosis and distant metastasis. The study hypothesizes that CTCs with CSC characteristics are responsible for metastasis. To investigate, we utilized mRNA-based stemness index (mRNAsi) and WGCNA

Phytoestrogens are plant chemicals that can act like the hormone estrogen in the body. They can interfere with the body’s natural hormone balance and cause problems with development and reproduction. This study aimed to investigate whether garlic (Allium sativum) and caraway (Carum carvi L.) oils have estrogenic effects on male reproductive hormones, testicular tissue, and function. The study used three groups of six male Rattus rattus rats each. The control group received distilled water,
