Drugs induced nephrotoxicity now considered as an essential reason for kidney failure. Aminoglycoside anti-infection agents, for example, gentamicin, which causes ototoxicity and nephrtotoxicity as a side effect , this research is centered around the utilization of natural materials as an antioxidants against the lethal oxidative activity that applied on the kidney cells ,the most imperative one of these materials is the honey. This work aimed to assess the defensive impact of citrus honey

All animals (at 15th day) were anesthetized by ether and sacrificed; blood samples were gathered for the subsequent measurement of the serum creatinine, urea and albumin while an isolated kidney was kept in 10 % of formaldehyde for the histopathological examination. The results demonstrated that gentamicin causes nephrotoxicity showen by elevation of serum level of creatinine, urea and a decrease in the serum albumin. While the administration of honey in combination with gentamicin reduced the nephro-toxic effect of gentamicin that represented by a reduction of the serum creatinine and urea with improvement of the kidney histological findings.This study concluded that, honey decreased nephrotoxic effect of gentamicin http://dx.doi.org/10.25130/tjps.25.2020.001
