Abstract :

Arsenic (As) is naturally occurring toxic metalloid which is considered as a serious environmental and health concern. Red blood cells are the prime target for any toxicants as their population is higher in systemic circulation. High prevalence of anaemia too has been reported from arsenic contaminated area, suggesting possible linkage between arsenic and the damaging effects on RBCs. The exact mechanism for these effects is still not clear, however, oxidative/nitrosative stress might be one of the causative factors to play a key role. The present study was planned to evaluate the protective effects of a metal chelator, MiADMSA either alone or in combination with a natural antioxidant (gallic acid) for the reversal of arsenic induced oxidative damage in red blood cells. We collected rat RBCs and cultured them in appropriate medium. They were incubated with MiADMSA and gallic acid and then treated with sodium arsenite at 37 degrees C. Hemolysates were prepared and assayed for various biochemical parameters such as oxidative/nitrosative variables, osmotic fragility, acetylcholinesterase activity, and cellular metal accumulation. We found there was reversibility of oxidative/nitrosative stress variables, elevated cellular antioxidant power, and decreased osmotic fragility of red blood cells both in MiADMSA alone as well as in combination with gallic acid treated group compared with arsenic treated group. In conclusion, MiADMSA efficiently participated in the reversal of arsenic induced oxidative/nitrosative damage in red blood cells where as Gallic acid improved its reversal when given in combination with MiADMSA.
