    The aim of this study to know the effect cold and hot aqueous extract of Pumpkin fruits on some anatomical characteristics on male rates exposed to oxidative stress by H2O2 0.5% on drinking water for 30 days. Fourty white albino rates used at ages 10-12 weeks and 200-250 gm weight divided randomly into 8 groups include 5 rates in each as following group: Without treatment (control), H2O2, cold extract (250 ml/kg), hot extract (250 ml/kg), cold+hot extract, hot extract+H2O2, cold extract+H2O2, hot+cold extract+H2O2. The extracts gived by mouth by tube feeding and results showed: Rates gived natural water had normal sexual cells and normal semniferious tubules while the group which gived H2O2 showed bloody congestion, necrosis epithelial cells, and hyperpigmentation of connective tissues between tubulets. Rates given (hot+cold extract+H2O2) showed incr.. Read More»
