Abstract
Arsenic is one of major pollutants that produce oxidative stress and biochemical alterations in rats. In the present study, ameliorative potential of vitamin C against arsenic toxicity in rats was investigated. Male albino rats were subdivided into 4 groups; the first received physiological saline by vehicle and served as normal controls. The second received 1 mg vitamin C/100 g of body weight free in drinking water. The third received 150 mg sodium metaarsenite/kg diet. The fourth received 150 mg sodium metaarsenite/kg diet and freely supplemented 1 mg vitamin C/100 g of body weight in drinking water. Blood samples were collected after 2, 4, 6 and 8 weeks of treatment. The results indicated that arsenic exposure resulted in significant increase in blood arsenic concentration. It was associated with significant decrease in superoxide dismutase and catalase ac - tivities. It enhanced elevation in plasma malondialdehyde concentration. It was associated with significant increase in gamma glutamyltransferase (GGT), aspartate amino-transferase (AST) and alanine amino-transferase (ALT) activities. Plasma total bilirubin, uric acid, creatinine and urea were increased significantly than normal controls especially by 6 and 8 weeks of arsenic toxicity. Plasma triglycerides were increased significantly with arsenic toxicity. However, plasma cholesterol was not affected. Vitamin C supplementation partially improved different measurements under investigation.
