Potential Nephroprotectice Effect of Curcumin against Gentamicin Induced Nephrotoxicity : An Experimental Study In Rats

Abstract

Nephrotoxicity is a serious & common side effect of aminoglycoside and is induced by generation of reactive oxygen species. Emerging evidence reveals that curcumin possesses antioxidant activity, therefore, this research was undertaken to evaluate the potential protective effects of curcumin in amiloration of nephrotoxicity induced by gentamicin in male rats.
