Aluminium is a hepatotoxic element that is extensively used in the production of household cookware, storage utensils, water purification and in the preparation of some drugs. Conversely, the leaf extract of Moringa oleifera is hepatoprotective amongst other medicinal and nutritional benefits.The present study evaluated the protective effect of ethanol leaf extract of Moringa oleifera on Aluminium induced hepatotoxicity in male albino wistar rats. Eighteen (18) male albino wistar rats weighing… Expand

Protective effect of vitamin C against theobromine induced hepatorenal and cardio toxicity in male albino Wistar rats
Histological evaluation of the liver, kidney and heart sections revealed degenerated cytoarchitecture and inflammation of these tissues following theobromine intoxication, however, the toxic features were observed to resolve in Group 4 when vitamin C was administered while cy toarchitectural degeneration persisted in Group 5.

The hepato-protective potentials of Moringa oleifera leaf extract on alcohol-induced hepato-toxicity in wistar rat
Alcohol (ethanol) is presently reputed to the most cause of disease development in humans. The liver is the human organ that is most frequently challenged in alcohol abuse by oral route in a processExpand
Effect of Ethanolic Leaf Extract of Moringa oleifera on Aluminum-induced Anemia in White Albino Rats
AlCl3 – induced anemia in Albino rats was mitigated and ethanolic extract of M. oleifera, whether provided with AlCl3 or alone, mitigated AlCl 3 – inducedAnemia in albino rats. Expand

Aim: The present investigation has been conducted to evaluate the hepatoprotective activity of Moringa oleifera against cadmium-induced toxicity in rats. Materials and Methods: For this study, 18Expand
Effects of Vitex doniana leaf extract on aluminium-induced toxicity in male albino Wistar rats -
Oral dose of 100mg/kg bw extract of Vitex doniana did not show any significant change in TBARS level of Liver and testes in the experimental groups while the AST, ALT and ALP levels in AlCl3 control and AlCl 3 + 100mg ViteX doniana showed significant decrease. Expand
Propolis alleviates aluminium-induced lipid peroxidation and biochemical parameters in male rats.
It can be concluded that propolis has beneficial influences and could be able to antagonize AlCl3 toxicity. Expand
Protective effects of Moringa oleifera Lam. leaves against arsenic-induced toxicity in mice.
Food supplementation of M. oleifera leaves abrogated the arsenic-induced elevation of triglyceride, glucose, urea and the activities of alkaline phospatase, aspartate aminotransferase and alanine aminotsferase in serum. Expand
Neuroprotective effect of Moringa oleifera leaf extract on aluminium-induced temporal cortical degeneration
Aluminium (Al), one of the metals implicated in neurodegeneration easily gain access to the nervous system through its presence in many manufactured foods, medicines and drinking water, and causesExpand
Effect of Moringa oleifera leaf extract on serum lipids and glycaemic control in alloxan induced diabetic albino rats
There was a hypoglycaemic effect of the aqueous extract of Moringa oleifera and it also has capacity to ameliorate dyslipidaemia in diabetic rats. Expand
Spermatogenic and Haematological effects of Aqueous and Ethanolic Extracts of Hymenocardia acida Stem Bark on Aluminium-Induced Toxicity in Male Wistar Rats
AlCl3 toxicity causes alterations of LH, FSH and TBARS, but aqueous and ethanolic stem bark extracts of H. acida may possibly ameliorate the alteration, and AlCl3- toxicity mildly influences the synthesis of certain haematological indices, but the extracts may modulate some of this interference.
