Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The present study is aimed to evaluate the protective effect of ferulic acid (FA) on fluoride-induced oxidative hepatotoxicity in male Wistar rats. Fluoride (25 mg/L) was given orally to induce hepatotoxicity for 12 weeks. Hepatic damage were assessed using status of pathophysiological markers like serum marker enzymes like aspartate transaminase, alanine transaminase, alkaline phosphatase, acid phosphatase, gamma glutamyl transferase, lactate dehydrogenase, bilirubin, lipid profile, total protein content levels, and histopathological studies. Treatment with FA significantly reduced the degree of histological abberations and rescued lipid peroxidation, as observed from reduced levels of lipid hydroperoxides, nitric oxide, restored levels of enzymic and non-enzymic antioxidants, and total protein content, with a concomitant decline in the levels of marker enzymes and lipid profile in fluoride-induced rats. These results suggest that ferulic acid has the ability to protect fluoride-induced hepatic damage.
