Abstract
Anti-oxidant activity of ethanolic extract of Rosa damascena (200 and 400 mg/kg b.wt, orally for 28 days) against isoproterenolinduced oxidative stress was investigated in rats. In addition to the activities of the antioxidant enzymes-glutathione reductase, superoxide dismutase, catalase and lipid peroxidase in the heart tissue. Administration of isoproterenol increased the level of lipid peroxides with corresponding decrease in the activities of the non-enzymatic antioxidants. The pre-treatment with ethanolic extract of petals significantly prevented the alterations induced by isoproterenol, and maintained near normal antioxidant status. Results suggest that the cardioprotective effect of Rosa damascena may partly be attributed to its antioxidant properties.
