Aluminum Induced Reproductive Dysfunction in Male Rats: The Ameliorative Effect of Saffron Extract

  title={Aluminum Induced Reproductive Dysfunction in Male Rats: The Ameliorative Effect of Saffron Extract},
  author={S. Sakr and Ferial A. El-mesady and M. Amal and Hashem},
The current study aimed at evaluating the reproductive toxic effect of AlCl3 and the possible ameliorative role of saffron extract in albino rats by using histological, immunohistochemical and biochemical studies. Male albino rats were divided into four groups. The first group served as control. The second group was orally administered with saffron extract at a dose level of 27 ml/kg b.w, 5 days/week for 6 weeks. Animals of the third group were orally given AlCl3 at a dose level of 20 mg/kg bw… Expand
