|Title||Determination of blood indices of albino rats treated with aluminum chloride and investigation of antioxidant effects of vitamin E and C|
The current study aims to investigate hematological and biochemical blood indices of albino rats administrated aluminum chloride (AlCl3) for eight weeks, and to study the therapeutic effects of vitamin E and C. AlCl 3 decreased the total red blood cell count (by 18%), hemoglobin (7%) and hematocrit (20%), and increased white blood cell count (67%), lymphocytes (29%), mean corpuscular volume (14%), mean corpuscular hemaglobin (6%) and platelets (33%). Administration of vitamin E with or without vitamin C failed to restore levels of red blood cell counts, hematocrit, mean corpuscular volume, mean corpuscular hemaglobin or platelets, but vitamin E on its own restored levels of white blood cells, hemaglobin and lymphocytes.
