In the present study, we have evaluated the nephroprotective effect of hydroalcoholic extract of Terminalia chebula in cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity model. Standardised extract was orally administered to Wistar rats for 10 days at different doses. On day 7, 8 mg/kg of cisplatin was administered intra-peritoneally to rats in all groups. T. chebula, in a dose-dependent manner significantly inhibited the elevation of serum creatinine, blood urea nitrogen and oxidant stress markers. The

The cisplatin-treated rats kidney showed diffused tubular necrosis and infilteration of inflammatory cells which was reversed in the treatment group. Chemical characterisation of extract by HPLC revealed the presence of corilagin, chebulinic, chebulagic, chebulic, gallic and ellagic acid. The findings of this study discovered that T. chebula ameliorated oxidative and histological damage caused by cisplatin.
