Effect of using pectin on lead toxicity

  title={Effect of using pectin on lead toxicity},
  author={Dalia and M. M. El-Nahal},
Lead has many undesired effects on humans and animals, including neurological, behavioral, respiratory, visual, growth retardation, hematological immunological, renal, hepatic. The aim of the present study was to investigate the alterations in biochemical parameters in serum and blood due to lead retention in blood, organs and estimating the role of low and high esterified pectin in alleviating the negative effects of lead. Material and Methods: Sixty male albino rats which were divided into…

Assessment of therapeutic effects of Nigella sativa against chronic lead acetate-induced reproductive dysfunction in male Sprague-Dawley rats
Sperm concentration, viability, and motility were adversely affected by LA, while concurrent treatment with NS significantly improved these parameters, and these adverse effects were alleviated by oral NS administration.

This study was carried out to determine the effect of dry banana peels (Musa Acuminate) and drymango peels (Mangiferaindica L.) against lead toxicity in weaning rats. Forty five growing male albino
Effect of Pectin Extract of Date (Phoenix Dactylifera L) on Erythrocytes Oxidative Damage and Hematological Parameters Induced by Lead in Males Rats
Lead is a non-essential element for human body and can caused a several damage in all metabolic and structural function, especially on hematological system. The aim of this study was to evaluate the

| Animal welfare is a matter of societal concern and debate, its improvement should consider those aspects actually affecting animal’s health, through determining their impact on some welfare
Therapeutics potential of Ocimum basilicum following mercury chloride-induced hepatotoxicity in rats (Rattus norvegicus)
Globally mercury (Hg) has been reported as one of heavy metal of known toxicity, noted for inducing public health disasters. Present study examines the therapeutics potentials of Ocimum basilicum on
A Food Supplement with Lead Chelating Effects: A Preliminary Study
The preliminary study supported the hypothesis that A. vera could be used as a safe supplement to prevent the accumulation of ingested lead.
Effect of Lead Acetate on the Thyroid Gland of Adult Male Albino Rats and the Possible Protective Role of Zinc Supplementation: A Biochemical, Histological and Morphometric Study
Zinc coadminstration resulted in improvement of the biochemical, histological and histomorphometric changes resulting from lead treatment, and exerted harmful effects on the histological structure and the function of the thyroid gland.
Utilization of wheat bran as by-product to produce pectin to be effective on lead acetate toxicity in rats
This study was carried out to be use wheat bran (rough and soft) as aby-product to produce pectin to be effective on lead acetate toxicity in rats. The biological experimental was design using male


Amelioration of lead toxicity on rat liver with Vitamin C and silymarin supplements.
Combined treatment of lead-exposed animals with Vitamin C and silymarin showed marked improvement of the biochemical, molecular and histopathological findings, which strongly indicate the protective effect of VitaminC and sallymarin against toxic effects of lead on liver tissue.
Antioxidant enzymes activities and bilirubin level in adult rat treated with lead.
It is concluded that lead induces oxidative stress in a dose- dependent manner and no dose-dependent response was observed in blood GPx activity and liver MDA content.
Effect of lead with vitamin E, C, or Spirulina on malondialdehyde, conjugated dienes and hydroperoxides in rats.
Administration of exogenous antioxidants in the lead treated animals reduced the levels of malondialdehyde, conjugated diene and hydroperoxide thereby protecting the animals from lead induced toxicity.
Combined efficacies of lipoic acid and meso-2,3-dimercaptosuccinic acid on lead-induced erythrocyte membrane lipid peroxidation and antioxidant status in rats
Treatment with either LA or DMSA reversed the lead-induced biochemical disturbances encountered by the erythrocytes, but combined treatment with LA and DMSA was very effective in mitigating all the parameters indicative of oxidative stress.
Role of selenium against lead toxicity in male rats
It appears from these results that lead may exert its toxic effect via peroxidative damage to renal and hepatic cell membranes after 24 hours, and selenium enhances the endogenous antioxidant capacity of the cells by increasing the activities of the superoxide dismutase and glutathione reductase and the glutATHione content.
Low esterified pectin accelerates removal of lead ions in rats
Dietary pectin is an essential part of human diet possessing numerous beneficial properties including its capacity to bind metal ions, in particular, those of lead. It was suggested that pectins with
Protective effect of Aquilegia vulgaris (L.) against lead acetate-induced oxidative stress in rats.
The extract succeeded to improve the histological pictures of liver and kidney and the biochemical parameters towards the normal values of the control and this improvement was pronounced in the animals treated with the extract after LA intoxication.
The rhamnogalacturonan-II dimer decreases intestinal absorption and tissue accumulation of lead in rats.
It is concluded that dRG-II may be useful in decreasing toxicity related to chronic Pb exposure, and human studies will be necessary however, to further evaluate the clinical utility of this beneficial effect.
Effects of lead exposure on the expression of phospholipid hydroperoxidase glutathione peroxidase mRNA in the rat brain.
It is suggested that lead exposure increases the expression of PHGPx mRNA in the low- and medium-dose groups without inducing structural changes, and that the reduced expression ofPHGPx RNA in the high-dose group was associated with structural damage.
Zizyphus spina-christi extract protects against aflatoxin B1-initiated hepatic carcinogenicity.
It could be concluded that Zizyphus extract have a power protective role against aflatoxicosis.
