  author={Eman M. Abd-Ella and Abdulrashid Mohammed and A. Mohammed},
Introduction and aim of the work: The protective effects of ANNONA MURICATA LINN leaf extract (Graviola) against orally administered Monosodium glutamate (MSG) for 4 weeks induced hepatic and testicular toxicity on male albino rats were examined. Methods: The rats were divided into 4 groups • Group 1: Served as negative control: The rats were daily orally administrated with ml of distilled water for 4 weeks. • Group 2: Served as control Graviola group: The rats were orally administrated with… 

Tables from this paper


Administration of Se along with MSG produced partial improvement of hepatic and testicular morphological changes, reduction in caspase 3 expression with beneficial effect on liver andtesticular parameters, andSelenium has partial protective effects against MSG induced hepatic, testicular toxicity through its anti oxidant and its anti apoptotic effects.

Amelioration of Monosodium Glutamate-induced Testicular Damage and Infertility in Male Rats by Water Melon and Cantaloupe Seeds Extract and Juices

This study concluded that water melon and cantaloupe seeds and juice extracts have an ameliorative role against MSG-induced testicular damage and infertility in rats.

Monosodium Glutamate Induced Hepatotoxicity and Oxidative Stress: Pathophysiological, Biochemical and Electron Microscopic Study

It could be concluded that MSG has hepato-toxic and oxidant effects and its use should be prohibited during treatment of liver disorders.

Antioxidant Effects of Soursop Extract and Nigella Sativa Seeds Against Oxidative Stress Induced By Mono Sodium Glutamate in Male Rats

This study was conducted to determine the effect of Soursop extract and Nigella sativa seeds against oxidative stress induced by mono sodium glutamate in rats. Forty-eight adult albino rats weighing

Prophylactic Effect of Spirulina Versus Monosodium Glutamate Induced Thyroid Disorders in Experimental Rats

Spirulina may alleviate MSG-induced thyroid disorders and play a significant role in the regulation of thyroid hormones in rats, and is revealed as a good source of protein, carbohydrates, fibers, minerals, and phenolic acids.

Sodium selenite ameliorated the testicular damaging effect of MSG through reduction of oxidative stress and apoptosis and improvement of the measured biochemical and morphometric parameters.

Histological and Ultra structural Study of the Effect of Monosodium Glutamate on the Submandibular Salivary Gland of Adult Albino Rats

It is concluded that MSG has degenerative changes at acini and ductal cells of (SMG) of albino rats and excessive consumption of food containing this salt should be avoided.

Effect of Graviola Leaves Extract on Nicotine Induced Reproductive Damages In Male Albino Rats

Nicotine (NIT) is the main ingredient of cigarette smoke that has harmful effects on reproductive system of both sixes and reduced fertility. However, the major cause of male infertility is the

Ameliorative Effect of Graviola (Annona muricata) on Mono Sodium Glutamate-Induced Hepatic Injury in Rats: Antioxidant, Apoptotic, Anti-inflammatory, Lipogenesis Markers, and Histopathological Studies

Gaviola’s interrelated antiapoptotic, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties are potential mechanisms to enhance hepatic deficits and protect the liver.

Protective Effect of Curcumin on Monosodium Glutamate-Induced Reproductive Toxicity in Male Albino Rats

Co-administration of curcumin to MSG-treated rats improved the histopathological alterations induced by MSG in testis and epididymis and increased the sperm count and it also significantly increased the serum testosterone and LH.

Histochemical Studies of the Effects of Monosodium Glutamate on the Liver of Adult Wistar Rats

The findings showed that monosodium glutamate consumption may have some deleterious effects on the liver of adult Wistar rats at higher doses and by extension may affect the functions of the liver.

Monosodium glutamate-induced oxidative damage and genotoxicity in the rat: modulatory role of vitamin C, vitamin E and quercetin

The results indicate that dietary antioxidants have protective potential against oxidative stress induced by MSG and, in addition, suggest that active oxygen species may play an important role in its genotoxicity.

Long term effects of monosodium glutamate on spermatogenesis following neonatal exposure in albino mice--a histological study.

It was observed from the quantitative analysis of the seminiferous tubules that there was increase in the number of the pachytene stage of primary spermatocyte in the experimental group as compared to that of the control animals of corresponding age.

The safety evaluation of monosodium glutamate.

A subsequent review by the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology and the Federal Drug Administration did not discount the existence of a sensitive subpopulation but otherwise concurred with the safety evaluation of JECFA and the SCF.

Diltiazem prevention of toxic effects of monosodium glutamate on ovaries in rats.

The results suggest that calcium overloading play an important role in mechanisms of MSG toxicity, and suggest that morphological and functional disorders of ovaries are prevented.

The sensitivity of male rat reproductive organs to monosodium glutamate.

Testicular morphological changes, testosterone level, and sperm concentration were sensitive to high doses of MSG while the rate of AR was not affected, and the consumption of high dose MSG must be avoided because it may cause partial infertility in male.
