Abstract

Lupeol, isolated from Crataeva nurvala stem bark in doses 40 and 80 mg/kg body weight, po, for 10 days, decreased the concentration of blood urea nitrogen, creatinine and lipid peroxidation and increased glutathione and catalase activities in cisplatin (5 mg/kg body weight, ip) induced nephrotoxicity in rats. The increased glutathione and catalase activities are indicative of antioxidant properties of lupeol.
