(17) Three doses of the CHCR extract tested were 200 mg/kg, 600 mg/kg, and 1800 mg/kg.
Group V received CHCR suspended in 0.5% CMC (800 mg/kg) for 18 days once a day orally.
The food and water intake was not affected by treatment with CHCR. Observations of gross pathology immediately after the dissection of the rats in all the groups were found to be normal, lacking in any apparent pathological abnormalities.
Treatment with 5-ASA and CHCR significantly lowered mRNA expression for cytokine IL-4 (table 2).
Cytokine levels after the treatment with standard drug and CHCR decreased when compared to the levels in the rats treated with DNBS alone (table 2).
Treatment with 5-ASA and CHCR prevented this target from modulating the progression of colitis (table 2).
Significant upregulation of IFN-[gamma] mRNA expressions in the DNBS model group, which was attenuated by 5-ASA and CHCR as seen by their levels of their transcripts, seems favorable (table 2).
There was also a significant reduction in the expression of this cytokine, which may be explained by the antioxidant effects of CHCR and the downregulation of the transcription of IL-4 mRNA in the treated groups.
Specimens: CHCR. Notes: The species was transferred to the genus Baruscapillaria Moravec, 1982 by Moravec (1982).
Este trabajo de compilacion representa el primer paso para la re-constitucion de la Coleccion de Helmintos de Costa Rica (CHCR), albergada por la escuela de Microbiologia de la Universidad de Costa Rica, que de alcanzar y mantener los estandares internacionales de calidad necesarios, debera convertirse en el depositario nacional de los helmintos de este pais.
macrocirra by Martinez-Salazar (2004) who re-examined voucher specimens deposited in CHCR.
About 76% of these new material was deposited in the CHCR. This fact establish a new era for the Coleccion de Helmintos de Costa Rica, since this collection will become a primary repository for parasite biodiversity in the country.
