Monosodium Glutamate Plus Artemether-lumefantrine Overdose Altered Malondialdehyde, Total Protein and Albumin Concentration in Rats
This study aimed at assessing alterations in malondialdehyde, MDA, total protein and albumin concentration in the serum and liver homogenate of monosodium glutamate (MSG)-challenged rats co-treatedExpand


Protective effect of Piper longum Linn. on monosodium glutamate induced oxidative stress in rats.
It was revealed that administration of P. longum provided significant protection to liver and kidney from the oxidative stress of MSG, though the dose rate was not sufficient to provide a complete protection. Expand
Monosodium Glutamate Induces Oxidative Stress and Affects Glucose Metabolism in the Kidney of Rats
The pattern of induction of oxidative stress and alteration of glucose metabolic enzymes in the animals is an indication that oxidative stress induced by MSG in the renal tissues of rats might be contributed by increased tissue glucose concentration resulting from enhanced renal gluconeogenesis.

Adverse Effects of Monosodium Glutamate on Liver and Kidney Functions in Adult Rats and Potential Protective Effect of Vitamins C and E
Monosodium glutamate (MSG) was administrated to rats at doses of 0.6 and 1.6 mg/g body weight for 14 days. Body weight and relative liver and kidney weight of rats were significantly increased. OnExpand
The Possible Ameliorative Effect of Propolis in Rat’s Liver Treated with Monosodium Glutamate (MSG)
Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is a commonly used food additive and there is growing concern that excitotoxins such as MSG play a critical role in the development of several hepatic disorders. Propolis,Expand
Acute administration of co-artesiane induces oxidative stress in the testes of adult male Wistar rats
The results suggest that the graded dose of Co-artesiane ® elicit depletion of antioxidant defense system and induced oxidative stress in the rats. Expand
Studies on the quantitative and qualitative characterization of erythrocyte glutathione peroxidase.
Glutathione peroxidase activity is found to be associated with a relatively stable, nondialyzable, heat-labile, intracellular component which is separable from hemoglobin, by gel filtration and ammonium sulfate precipitation. Expand
Effect of Pulverized Mangifera indica (Mango) Seed Kernel on Monosodium Glutamate-Intoxicated Rats’ Serum Antioxidant Capacity, Brain Function and Histology
Monosodium glutamate, a common food-flavoring additive, affects the brain and induces oxidative stress while the underutilized Mangifera indica L seed kernel (MSK) has phyto-medicinal values. ThisExpand
Effect of Honey on Monosodium Glutamate Induced Nephrotoxicity ( Histological and Electron Microscopic Studies )
Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is frequently used as a flavor enhancer, the fact of which makes it one of the most applied food additives in the modern nutrition all over the world. The aim of this workExpand
Effects of artemether on biochemical markers of liver function in Plasmodium berghei-infected and non-infected rats
It is concluded that high doses of artemether are toxic to the liver of both infected and uninfected rats. Expand
Effect of Prolonged Administration of Artemether-Lumefantrine on Testicular Biomarkers of Oxidative Stress: Ameliorative Effect of Vitamin E
It is concluded that, prolonged administration of artemether-lumefantrine induces significant alterations in testicular antioxidant enzymes activity suggestive of oxidative stress and that vitamin E and cessation of treatment with artemisinin-based combination therapies appreciably ameliorates the alterations intesticular antioxidants enzymes activity.
