Lemongrass Leaf Extract Attenuates Hydrocarbon- Induced Oxidative Stress and Macrocytic Hypochromic Anaemia in Rats

Aim: The therapeutic use of medicinal plants and plant products to mitigate solvent/xenobiotic-induced haematological disorders has not been adequately explored. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of Cymbopogon citratus (C. citratus) leaf decoctions on gasoline vapour (GV)-induced haematological disorders and oxidative stress in rats. Methodology:...

Effect of Cymbopogon citratus Decoctions on Gasoline Vapour-induced Reproductive Toxicity in Female Rats

Aims: Recent research indicates that plant molecules, particularly those that are rich with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and immune modulatory  constituents, can modify and prevent  the detrimental effects of gasoline compounds on reproductive endpoints. However, whether C. citratusdecoction can alleviate gasoline vapour (GV)-induced derangement of female reproductive hormones has not yet...
