ABSTRACT Little information is apparently available regarding the nephrotoxic effects induced by pesticides. The aim of this study was to examine the influence of low doses of methyl parathion (MP) on the structure and function of the kidney of male Wistar rats. A corn oil (vehicle) was administered to control rats, whereas treated rats received MP at 0.56 mg/kg orally (1/25 of LD50), every third day, for 8 weeks. At the end of each week following MP exposure, creatinine and glucose levels were… Expand
The Rat (Rattus norvegicus) as a Model Object for Acute Organophosphate Poisoning. 5. Morphofunctional Alterations in Kidneys
In two rat models of acute paraoxon (POX) poisoning against the background of specific and nonspecific inhibition of blood plasma carboxyl esterase (CE) activity, the POX effect on morphology andExpand
Genotoxic, cytotoxic, and cytopathological effects in rats exposed for 18 months to a mixture of 13 chemicals in doses below NOAEL levels.
The present study investigates the genotoxic and cytotoxic effects of long term exposure to low doses of a mixture consisting of methomyl, triadimefon, dimethoate, glyphosate, carbaryl, methylExpand
Carvacrol loaded beta cyclodextrin-alginate-chitosan based nanoflowers attenuates renal toxicity induced by malathion and parathion: A comparative toxicity.
It is concluded that BAC could be considered as a carrier for drugs used to treat renal disorders, which may control pests more efficiently than conventional organophosphate pesticides. Expand
Toxicological evaluation of the herbicide Palace® in Drosophila melanogaster
Investigation of the adverse influence of the pesticide Palace®, using D. melanogaster as a model organism found that exposure of flies during larval stage to Palace® significantly affected development of larvae to the adult stage, and treatment with Palace® resulted in dose-dependent progressive adverse effects on survival and behavior.

Environmental and Occupational Exposures in Kidney Disease.
Environmental exposures that are associated with kidney dysfunction in animals and human beings are discussed, with a focus on those implicated in causing chronic kidney disease. Expand


Methyl parathion induced nephrotoxicity in male rats and protective role of vitamins C and E
Methyl parathion is an organophosphate insecticide that has been used in agriculture and domestic for several years. Vitamin C (200 mg/kg bw per day) + vitamin E (200 mg/kg bw per day), methylExpand
Nephrotoxicity induced by long-term oral administration of different doses of chlorpyrifos
The present study showed that the histopathological changes were caused in kidney of rats by chlorpyrifos administration, and variable intensities of these changes were noticed depending upon the doses and duration of the treatment. Expand
Effects of cypermethrin and methyl parathion mixtures on hormone levels and immune functions in Wistar rats
It is shown that exposure to low-dose mixtures of cypermethrin and methyl parathion may affect hormone levels (especially estradiol) and immune function in rats, and the NOAELs of combined compounds were located at 1/600 LD50. Expand

It is concluded that in d Diazinon exposure, depletion of antioxidant enzymes is accompanied by induction of oxidative stress that might be beneficial in monitoring diazinon toxicity. Expand
Organophosphate pesticides‐induced changes in the redox status of rat tissues and protective effects of antioxidant vitamins
It can be concluded that these pesticides generate oxidative stress but their effects were not synergistic when given together and prior feeding of antioxidant vitamins tend to reduce the toxicities of these pesticides. Expand
Curcumin ameliorates nephrotoxicity and histopathological alterations induced by chlorpyrifos in albino rats (690.5)
It is concluded from the obtained results that CPF is highly toxic to albino rats by causing nephrotoxicity and may leads to oxidative stress and affect their population survival in environment. Expand
Evaluation of DNA damage and cytotoxicity induced by three commonly used organophosphate pesticides individually and in mixture, in rat tissues
Investigation of CPF, MPT, and MLT when given singly or in combination found that MPT caused highest level of DNA damage and brain was maximally affected by these OP compounds, confirming that these pesticides do not potentiate the toxicity of each other. Expand
Role of reactive oxygen metabolites in organophosphate-bidrin-induced renal tubular cytotoxicity.
It is demonstrated that the organophosphate BD can cause direct tubular cytotoxicity, and implicate, at least in part, a role for ROS and accompanying lipid peroxidation in cytot toxicity. Expand
A review on the mechanisms involved in hyperglycemia induced by organophosphorus pesticides
Organophosphorus (OP) compounds are cholinesterase-inhibiting chemicals used as pesticide. Exposures to OPs cause a significant number of poisonings and deaths each year. One of the reported adverseExpand
Involvement of oxidative stress in methyl parathion and parathion‐induced toxicity and genotoxicity to human liver carcinoma (HepG2) cells
The cytotoxic effect of these OPI was found to be associated, at least in part, with oxidative cell/tissue damage, and it was found that methyl‐parathion is slightly less toxic than parathion to HepG2 cells. Expand
