It has already been reported that the accumulation of fluoride can alter the activities of some enzymes involved in the free-radical metabolism and also decrease the activities of some enzymes involved in the antioxidant defense system. In the present study, we have investigated the antioxidative properties of aqueous extract of the bark of Terminalia arjuna (TA) on sodium fluoride (NaF) induced oxidative damages in the livers and kidneys… CONTINUE READING
