The International Journal of Pharmaceutical Science, which is classified within Scopus containers, published a scientific paper by a research team from the faculty of Pharmacy at the University of Kerbala entitled (The Protective Effect of Boswellia Against Carbimazole induced renal toxicity and Hepatic Toxicity on Male Rats.).
The research, published by Prof. Dr. Ban Hoshi Khalaf, teacher Amal Omran Musa, and Assist. Lect. Eman Hussein Nasser, aims to study The Protective Effect of Boswellia Against Carbimazole induced renal toxicity that occurs due to toxic high doses of commonly used or long-term drugs.
The research concludes, “The use of some chemical drugs in high doses or for long periods can lead to severe damage to other organs, especially the liver and kidneys, because they are the organs responsible for metabolism and elimination of treatment from the body. Therefore, the effect of bitter gum plant in reducing or preventing this toxicity was studied.”
The results of the study conducted on male rats shows a clear difference between the animals that were dosed with bitter gum and the animals that were not dosed, as the animals’ organs remained without harm or very little harm compared to the animals that were not dosed with the plant..
