Effect of aqueous extract of garlic on hepatic injury due to lead-induced oxidative stress in experimental rats has been investigated. Lead acetate (LA) at a dose of 15 mg/kg body wt was administered ip to rats for 7 consecutive days to induce hepatic injury. Freshly prepared aqueous garlic extract (AGE) at a dose of 50 mg/kg body wt was fed orally to rats 1 h before LA treatment for similar period. LA treatment caused hepatic injury as evident from increased activities of serum glutamate… Expand
The effect of ferulic acid against lead-induced oxidative stress and DNA damage in kidney and testes of rats
TLDR
Results illustrated that ferulic acid has a protective action against toxicity caused by lead acetate in rats and may have future therapeutic relevance in the prevention of lead acetates-induced testicular and renal toxicity in rats. Expand
Aqueous garlic extract protects against sepsis-induced toxicity in pulmonary and ileal tissues
TLDR
AGE treatment, through its antioxidant effects, protects against oxidative pulmonary and ileal injury and normalizes the impaired coagulation in sepsis. Expand
Protective effects of garlic extract against hematological alterations, immunosuppression, hepatic oxidative stress, and renal damage induced by cyclophosphamide in rats
Cyclophosphamide is an alkylating agent widely used as anticancer drug, reported to exert cytotoxic effects attributed to oxidative stress. Therefore, this study aimed to explore the protectiveExpand

Lead-induced cardiac and hematological alterations in aging Wistar male rats: alleviating effects of nutrient metal mixture
TLDR
The hematological parameters, and the cardiac TCA cycle and antioxidant enzyme markers and lipid peroxidation levels were significantly altered following Pb exposure in young rats, and Pb induced changes persisted, though at much lower level in the aged rats. Expand
Hepatoprotective role of taurine and garlic extract in minimizing the histopathological changes in liver induced by long-term exposure to copper sulphate in Clarias gariepinus
The present study was undertaken to elucidate whether sulphur containing antioxidants such as taurine and garlic extract could ameliorate copper sulphate induced histopathological alterations inExpand
ALTERATION IN CARBOHYDRATE METABOLISM BY SUB-ACUTE LEAD EXPOSURE: A DOSE-DEPENDENT STUDY
TLDR
It is suggested that an adaptive mechanism is initiated by stimulating and retarding glycogenolytic and glycolytic activity and also by rising in the content of free amino acid nitrogen to recover from the lead stressed toxic manifestation. Expand
Metabolic adaptability in liver and gastrocnemius muscle of mice following subacute lead toxicity
TLDR
Data suggested that subacute Pb exposure was responsible for metabolic modulation in an adaptive fashion in the liver and skeletal muscle of mice. Expand

Sodium nitrite (NaNO2), a food color fixative and preservative, contributes to carcinogenesis. We investigated the protective role of garlic oil against NaNO2-induced abnormalities in metabolicExpand
Melatonin protects against lead-induced hepatic and renal toxicity in male rats.
TLDR
Melatonin co-treatment to the lead-administered rats attenuated the increase of LPO and restored the activity of SOD and levels of GSH as well as the mean values of NA, NV and N/C, suggesting that melatonin may be useful in combating free radical-induced damage due to lead toxicity. Expand
Amelioration of lead toxicity on rat liver with Vitamin C and silymarin supplements.
TLDR
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. Expand
Antiatherogenic and antiperoxidative effects of garlic and soy proteins in alcohol fed rats.
TLDR
Alcohol fed rats showed significant increase in liver weight, serum and tissue cholesterol, serum triacylglycerol (TAG), phospholipids (PL) and free fatty acid (FFA) levels and activity of HMGCoA reductase in liver and intestine and GP and SP treated rats showed decrease in these values towards normal.

TLDR
From this experiment it is revealed that Garlic and vitamin B-complex has protective and curative effect in lead toxicity. Expand
Melatonin protects against isoproterenol‐induced myocardial injury in the rat: antioxidative mechanisms
TLDR
The findings document melatonin’s ability to provide cardio protection at a low pharmacological dose and raises the possibility of this indole being a therapeutic treatment for ischemic heart disease. Expand
Garlic compounds minimize intracellular oxidative stress and inhibit nuclear factor-kappa b activation.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that both AGE and SAC can protect EC from Ox-LDL-induced injury by preventing intracellular GSH depletion in EC and by minimizing release of peroxides from EC and M Phi. Expand
Effect of isoproterenol on lipid peroxidation and antioxidant enzymes of myocardial tissue of mice and protection by quinidine
TLDR
The present investigation suggests that quinidine, when administered to mice, strengthens the antioxidant defense system to resist the free radical induced damage brought about by isoproterenol induced ischaemic condition. Expand
