Changes in the Testicular and Preputial Gland Structures of Mice Related to Influence of Ferula hormonis Extract

Merza H. Homady

Abstract:
The effect of ingestion of freshly prepared ethanolic extract of Ferula hormonis was investigated on the histology of both testis and preputial gland in intact prepubertal mice. The intra gastric application of 3mg kg‾1day‾1 of this extract for six weeks clearly inhibited the normal growth of both testis and preputial gland. On the other hand, the administration of such extract resulted in a process called tuberculosis and cystic swelling of the testis. Preputial structure was atrophied and has undergone cystic degeneration.
