Abstract
The present study explores the antiurolithiatic activity of an ethanolic extract of the Cucumis Sativus (CS) fruit in Wistar rats. Ethylene glycol (0.75% v/v) induced calculi in Wistar rats. They have assessed various parameters like biochemical estimations of serum, urine, and kidney tissue homogenate and histopathological studies of a kidney. The treatment with doses of 200 mg/kg and 400 mg/kg of ethanolic extract of CS exerts dose-dependent anti-urolithic activity. A significant reduction in the deposition of kidney stone-forming constituents like calcium, oxalate, and phosphate was found in the kidneys. The Wistar rat’s kidney sections showed the presence of crystals, dilatation of tubules tubulorrhexis, and the epithelial recovered.
