Ameliorative effect of sesamin in cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity in rats by suppressing inflammation, oxidative/nitrosative stress, and cellular damage

Nephrotoxicity of cisplatin (CP) involves renal oxidative stress and inflammation, and sesamin (a major liganin in many plants) has strong antioxidant and antiinflammatory actions. Therefore, we investigated here the possible mitigative action of sesamin on CP nephrotoxicity in rats. Sesamin was given orally (5 mg/kg/day, 10 days), and on the 7th day, some of the treated rats were injected intrape…
