The protective effect of L-Carnitine on the gentamicin nephrotoxicity was investigated in experimental animal model. Male Wister 200-300 g rats were distributed randomly into four groups, control group, L-Carnitine treated group, Gentamicin treated group, and L-Carnitine + Gentamicin treated group. The result showed that gentamicin nephrotoxicity in rats is detected by significant plasma creatinine, urea and zinc changes in serum and renal tissue. L-Carnitine is able to ameliorate the renal functions and restore the zinc status. Zinc serum level in the gentamicin treated group is 115 μg/dl, while it is 129 μg/ dl in the Gentamicin + L-Carnitine treated group, and Zinc tissue level in the Gentamicin treated group is 14.6 μg/dl, while it is 17.89 μg/dl in the Gentamicin + L-Carnitine treated group. The possibility of scavenging property of L-Carnitine against peroxy radical is via restoring zinc status implicated.
