This study was designed to investigate the impact of oral administration of fenitrothion (10 mg/kg) on liver, kidney, brain, and lung function in rats. The effect was studied on days 7, 14, 21, 28, and 42. Our results have shown deterioration in liver function as evidenced by the elevation in serum ALT, AST, ALP, and bilirubin and reduction in albumin and hepatic glycogen. This was associated with a state of hyperglycemia and hyperlipidemia and increased prothrombin time, while hemoglobin… Expand
Biochemical And Haematological Alterations In Fenitrothion Toxicated Rats

Protective effect of N-acetylcysteine on fenitrothion-induced toxicity: The antioxidant status and metabolizing enzymes expression in rats.
The study indicated the involvement of oxidative damage, inflammation, and alteration of xenobiotic-metabolizing enzymes expression in FNT-induced toxicity and revealed that they were significantly improved by NAC co-treatment. Expand
The ameliorating effects of selenium and vitamin C against fenitrothion-induced blood toxicity in Wistar rats.
Selenium and vitamin C could be useful in providing protection of exposed non-target organisms including people from fenitrothion by improving the activity of antioxidants, reduced oxidative stress and a lipid peroxidation, maintaining the values of examined parameters to optimal levels. Expand
Role of selenium and vitamin C in mitigating oxidative stress induced by fenitrothion in rat liver.
Coadministration of FNT with Se and Vit C exhibited hepatoprotective role confirmed by reduction of oxidative stress levels and restoration in the values of examined parameters, showed a reduction in absolute and relative liver weight after FNT administration. Expand

Oxidative damage, biochemical and histopathological alterations in rats exposed to chlorpyrifos and the antioxidant role of zinc
Abstract The protective effects of zinc on liver and kidney injury induced by chlorpyrifos (CPF) were investigated in rats. Male and female rats were orally administered CPF at a dose of 6.75 mg kgExpand
Chlorpyrifos acute exposure induces hyperglycemia and hyperlipidemia in rats.
It is demonstrated that a single CPF administration caused hyperglycemia and hyperlipidemia in rats and the activation of the gluconeogenesis pathway, probably elicited by hypercorticosteronemia, is involved in the hyperglycemic effect of CPF in rats. Expand
Investigation of the toxicity of some organophosphorus pesticides in a repeated dose study in rats.
The study indicates that repeated exposure, at subclinical doses, to organophosphorus MLT and DZN causes some biochemical, histopathological and immune alterations in rats. Expand
Effect of propolis consumption on hepatotoxicity and brain damage in male rats exposed to chlorpyrifos
This study was undertaken to determine the protective effect of propolis against the hepatotoxicity and brain damage of chlorpyrifos (CPF) in male rats. Animals were assigned to one of four groups.Expand
