The present investigation report the effect of a bradykinin-potentiating factor (BPF) on gentamicin-induced oxidative stress in rat liver and kidney. BPF is a peptide fraction isolated from the venom of the Egyptian scorpion (Buthus occitanus) has been demonstrated to have antioxidant, free radical scavenger and anti-inflammatory effects. Thirty male Rattus norvegicus (130-150 g) were included and divided into three equal groups as follows: Group I (control), group II was (ip) injected with… CONTINUE READING
