Terminalia chebula supplementation attenuates cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity in Wistar rats through modulation of apoptotic pathway

Natural Product Research 2019 Jun;33(11):1641-1645. doi: 10.1080/14786419.2018.1425843. Epub 2018 Jan 17.

In the present study, we have evaluated the nephroprotective effect of hydroalcoholic extract of Terminalia chebula in cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity model. Standardised extract was orally administered to Wistar rats for 10 days at different doses. On day 7, 8 mg/kg of cisplatin was administered intra-peritoneally to rats in all groups. T. chebula, in a dose-dependent manner significantly inhibited the elevation of serum creatinine, blood urea nitrogen and oxidant stress markers. The immunohistochemical analysis revealed the increased levels of apoptotic markers and cytokines in cisplatin group were significantly lowered by T. chebula extract. The cisplatin-treated rats kidney showed diffused tubular necrosis and infilteration of inflammatory cells which was reversed in the treatment group. Chemical characterisation of extract by HPLC revealed the presence of corilagin, chebulinic, chebulagic, chebulic, gallic and ellagic acid. The findings of this study discovered that T. chebula ameliorated oxidative and histological damage caused by cisplatin.
