Title : Curcumin attenuates the reproductive toxicity induced by sodium arsenite and smokeless tobacco on the female murine test system


Arsenic exposure is a major threat to human beings all around the world due to its immense potential to cause various diseases including cancer. In the Southern Assam, arsenic contamination (>10 µg/L) has been reported in the ground water. In addition, population of Southern Assam expansively consumes ‘Sadagura’, a unique type of smokeless tobacco which might enhance the effects caused by arsenic. Phytonutrients is a good source of antioxidant with therapeutic potential in curing many diseases. Thus, the current study is aimed to investigate the ameliorative effect of curcumin on the sodium arsenite and smokeless tobacco induced toxicity on the reproductive health of female mice.
