The objective of this study was to evaluate the potential of n-butanol extract obtained from flowers of Chrysanthemum fontanesii (Cf) and vitamin E against kidney oxidant injury induced by sodium valproate in mice. The evaluation was made through Histopathological examination and measuring kidney lipid peroxidation (LPO) and antioxidant parameters: reduced glutathione (GSH), glutathione peroxidase (GPx) and catalase. Severe alterations in all biomarkers were observed after injury with VPA. Treatment with Cf extract and vitamin E resulted in markedly decreased levels of LPO while increased levels of GSH and antioxidant enzymes activities were observed. In conclusion, n-butanol extract of Cf may be an interesting candidate for the treatment of kidney injury induced by VPA through enhancing endogenous antioxidant defenses and normalizing the kidney histopathological architecture.
