An experiment was conducted to determine the effect of alcoholic extract of black seed Nigella sativa L. on fertility parameters in white male rats (Rattus norvegicus). A total of 60 mature males were divided into three equal groups. The first one (Control) intake drinking water, while the other two groups (T1 and T2) intake the extract in two doses (0.5 and 1.5 g/Kg, respectively) daily for 53 days. The results revealed that treatment with alcoholic extract of Nigella sativa led to significant… 

Effect of Nigella sativa seeds on reproductive system of male diabetic rats

NSS improve semen quantity and mobility, and testosterone levels and testis, and improve antioxidant activities of glutathione peroxidase (GPx), superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), gamma glutamyl transferase (GGT), alkaline phosphatase (ALP), and aspartate and alanine aminotransferase (AST and ALT).

Protective effect of Nigella sativa oil against acetamiprid induced reproductive toxicity in male rats

The obtained results showed that the co-administration of NSO along with ACMP can mitigate more efficiently and modulate in certain cases the adverse effects induced by ACMP on reproductive organs weights, semen quality, testosterone, and TBARS levels.

Fertility enhancing effects of methanolic leaf extract of Dracaena arborea in albino rats (Rattus norvegicus)

It was concluded that the methanolic leaf extract of D. arborea has fertility enhancer properties and there was a significant and dose-dependent increase in the sperm number.

Protective role of Nigella sativa oil against reproductive toxicity, hormonal alterations, and oxidative damage induced by chlorpyrifos in male rats

It is indicated that NSO can improve semen picture and moderate CPF-induced reproductive toxicity and the presence of NSO with CPF alleviates its toxic effects.

Effect of Methanolic and Phenolic Extracts of Nigella sativa Seeds on Testicular Expression Levels of inhibin alpha and beta Genes in Mature Male Wistar Rats.

It can be concluded that phenolic compounds of N. sativa seeds have the more efficient role in reproductive functions than methanolic extract of N., sativa seed.

This study showed the preventive effects of NS administration against alterations in reproductive hormnes, sperm parameters and gonadal histology caused by LA in rats.

Immunomodulatory effect of Nigella sativa seed extract in male rabbits treated with dexamethasone

It can be concluded that the exa mined extract showed a ce rtain immuno modulating effect and cellular immunity was potentially a meliorated in intact and dexamethasone-induced immunosuppressed- male rabbits.

Role of Nigella sativa oil on histological features and androgenicity of nicotine treated male Sprague dawley reproductive system / Lina binti Samsudin

It is suggested that nicotine caused damage to the male reproductive system while Nigella sativa oil was shown to have protective properties on the detrimental effects caused by the nicotine.

Effect of Nigella sativa on glucose concentration, lipid peroxidation, anti-oxidant defence system and liver damage in experimentally-induced diabetic rabbits.

It was concluded that N. sativa might be used in diabetic patients to prevent lipid peroxidation, increase anti-oxidant defence system activity and also prevent liver damage.

The in vitro anti-tumor activity of some crude and purified components of blackseed, Nigella sativa L.

TQ and DIM, which are cytotoxic for several types of human tumor cells, may be MDR substrates, and that radical generation may not be critical to their cytotoxicity activity.

Intracerebroventricular administration of thymoquinone, the major constituent of Nigella sativa seeds, suppresses epileptic seizures in rats.

The results indicate that thymoquinone may have anticonvulsant activity, probably through an opioid receptor-mediated increase in GABAergic tone.

Effect of Nigella sativa volatile oil on Jurkat T cell leukemia polypeptides

Analysis of metabolically [32P] labelled Jurkat cells did not reveal any radioactivity in the vicinity of these two proteins, and two protein spots have a pinkish color after silver staining.

Identification of specific sites of hormonal regulation in spermatogenesis in rats, monkeys, and man.

Drawing together data from rat, monkey, and human models, differences between species are identified and an overview of the hormonal regulation of spermatogenesis is formed based on the use of well-defined in vivo models of gonadotropin/androgen deprivation and replacement, the quantitative assessment of germ cell number using stereological techniques, and the directed study of specific steps in sperMatogenesis shown to be hormone dependent.

Studies on the activity of individual plants of an antidiabetic plant mixture

A blood glucose lowering extract of a mixture of five plants in use by Kuwaiti diabetics was studied and only the extracts of myrrh and aloe gums effectively increased glucose tolerance in both normal and diabetic rats.
