M. Pourjafar , P.A. Aghbolaghi and M. Shakhse-Niaie

Abstract:
Garlic ability to reduce lead burden in body tissues before and during chronic lead toxicity was studied. Eighty mice were divided into 8 groups. Group D received placebo. Groups A1, A2 and A3, respectively received 500, 250 and 125 mg kg-1 day garlic and Groups B1, B2 and B3, respectively 1/4, 1/8 and 1/16 garlic tablet kg-1 day in first four weeks and in second four weeks they received 5 mg kg-1 day lead acetate plus garlic or garlic tablet. Group C received placebo in first four weeks and in second four weeks they received 5 mg kg-1 day lead acetate and placebo. Reduction in lead burden of kidney, liver, bone and blood (except for group A3) in experimental groups was significant compared with group C (p<0.05). Results showed that fresh garlic extract and garlic tablet had almost same effects on lead reduction in tissues.
