Nephro-Protective Effect of Wheat Germ Oil on Gentamicin-Induced Acute Nephrotoxicity in Wistar Albino Rat
Abstract Gentamicin (GM) is an aminoglycoside antibiotic that possesses a wide range of anti-microbial activity. Currently, uses of gentamicin are narrowed due to it supposedly induces nephrotoxicity. Therefore, the aim of this study is to evaluate the possible nephron-protective effect of wheat germ oil (WGO), and its antioxidant potential against gentamicin-induced toxicity in Wistar albino rats. Forty rats were randomly ... Read more
