Abstract

Renal failure a case characterized by the impairment of the kidney to filter waste products from the body.
The study aims to evaluate the potential effect of Acacia gum in the prevention of induced Acute renal
failure in the rabbit model. Eighteen healthy male domestic rabbits (Lepus cuniculus) were divided into
three groups. Group 1: normal rabbits as control, Group 2: animals were injected (70mg/kg. B.W) of
intramuscular gentamicin daily for 14 days for induction of acute renal failure, Group 3: animals were
treated with intramuscular injection (70mg/kg B.W) gentamicin daily and offered 15% Acacia gum with
drinking water for 14 days. At the end of the experiment Serum urea, uric acid, creatinine, blood urea
nitrogen, calcium, sodium, and malondialdehyde were measured in addition to Urine analysis. The results
showed that the treatment of Acacia gum improved significantly serum uric acid, creatinine, urea, blood
urea nitrogen, electrolyte, and proteinuria. Also reduced malonaldehyde, urine Specific gravity, and pH
levels. Our findings conclude that GA can protect the kidney by enhancing antioxidant efficiency, and may
be useful in improving acute renal failure.
