Histological Changes in the Kidney of the Albino Rat Treated with Nanocomposites of Ginger Plant
The current study was conducted in the animal house in the College of Education for Girls / University of Kufa, and the study aimed to know the effect of nano-extract (zinc oxide) of the ginger plant on the histological composition of the kidney in male white rats whose ages ranged from (8_9) weeks and weights (150_180g), which were divided To four groups, each group consisted of 6 rats, the first group was the control group, the second group was treated with zinc oxide at a concentration of (150 mg/kg), the third group was treated with nano-extract of ginger plant at a concentration of (20 mg/kg), and the fourth group was treated with alcoholic extract of ginger plant at a concentration of (250 mg/kg) daily. For a period of 30 and 45 days, and after the end of the first experiment (30) days, half of the rats and parts of the kidney tissues were sacrificed, and after the end of the second experiment (45) days, the other half was sacrificed and sections of the kidney tissues were made. The results of the histological study of the kidneys of mice treated with nano-extract of ginger plant at a concentration of (20 mg / kg) for a period of 30 days and 45 days showed a normal structure of Bowman's capsule and its glomeruli, and there were no histological changes.
