The present study was aimed to evaluate the beneficial effect of Cystone syrup in an experimental model of glycerol-induced acute renal failure (ARF) in rats. Biochemical parameters, kidney weight and histopathological evaluation were performed to conclude the beneficial effect of Cystone syrup. Administration of single dose of 50% v/v glycerol (8ml/kg.i.m) caused severe renal dysfunction associated with significant increase in markers of renal function such as serum urea ( p <0.01), creatinine ( p <0.01), blood urea nitrogen (BUN) ( p <0.01), decrease in the Creatinine clearance (Ccr) ( p <0.01) and increase in kidney weight to body weight ratio ( p <0.01) compared to control group. These changes were in accordance with the histopathological findings showing severe tubular necrosis, degeneration and moderate luminal cast formation. In contrast, pre-treatment with Cystone (5 ml/kg, p .o) for seven days, alleviated the glycerol induced renal dysfunction significantly by maintaining serum urea ( p <0.01), creatinine ( p <0.05), BUN ( p <0.01) and kidney weight to body weight ratio ( p <0.05) near to normal range, also improved the creatinine clearance ( p <0.05) compared to untreated positive control. In addition, histopathology of Cystone (5 ml/kg, p.o) treated group showed mild to moderate tubular necrosis and degeneration. Thus, the findings of the present study demonstrates the usefulness of Cystone syrup in reversing the biochemical/ structural markers of renal dysfunction observed in experimental model of renal failure in rats.
