The study is aim at investigating effect of combine extracts of Vernonia amygdalina (V.A) and Moringa oleifera (M.O) on STZ induced kidney damage in experimental rat models. The dried leaves of each plant species were extracted in 80% (V/V) ethanol. Thirty-six male and female rats of Wister strain weighing about 140-180g and divided into 6 groups, each group consisting of 6 rats were used for the investigation. Group 1and 2 represented diabetic control, received placebo. Group 3, 4, 5 and 6…

Assessment of the Anti-Hyperglycaemic, Anti-Inflammatory and Antioxidant Activities of the Methanol Extract of Moringa Oleifera in Diabetes-Induced Nephrotoxic Male Wistar Rats

MO contains potent phytochemical constituents that offer protective action against diabetic-induced renal damage, reactive oxygen species (ROS) and inflammation and could therefore play a role in reducing diabetic complications, particularly in developing countries where the majority cannot afford orthodox medicine.

Nephroprotective Activity of Aristolochia indica Leaf Extract Against Gentamicin Induced Renal Dysfunction

The results suggest that an Aristolochia indica leaf has the potential in preventing the nephrotoxicity induced by Gentamicin.

The Effects of Aqueous Moringa oleifera and Gongronema latifolia on the Defense System of Diabetic Rabbits

It was concluded that the leaves of moringa oleifera and gongronema administered at the dosages used and for the duration of the experiment had significant treatment effects the defense system of diabetic rabbits and finally that the use of both herbs simultaneously will have higher effects in treatment of diabetics than when used differently.
