Antioxidant Status and the Degree of Oxidative Stress in Dromedary (Camelus dromedarius) with or with Endometritis

H.E. Mohamed    

Abstract: Endometritis has been considered as an important factor in infertility. This study was conducted to assess antioxidant status, Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) and reactive nitrogen species in healthy and camels with endometritis. The Total Antioxidant Status (TAS), lipid peroxidation in terms of Malondialdehyde (MDA) and antioxidant such as ascorbic acid, alpha tocoherol, in addition to copper and zinc compared between health and those with endometritis. A significant increase in MDA as well as a decrease TAS, AA, alpha tocopherol, Cu and Zn was observed in camels with endometritis compared to healthy. Free radical over production may be a contributing factor in reduction of antioxidant status and increase in the degree of lipid peroxidation. It could be suggested that antioxidant may play a vita role in the management of infertility including endometritis.
