Abstract


The aim of the present study was to assess the ameliorative effects of dietary supplementation with peanut, pistachio or cashew nuts (1g %) on the complications associated with ethanol induced pancreatic injury in rats. Forty male albino rats were divided into 5 groups. Group (1): rats were fed on standard diet for 8 weeks (control) , group (2): rats were fed on standard diet for 8 weeks and received ethanol in drinking water (15% v/v) ad libitum at the first 4 weeks, groups (3, 4 and 5): rats were fed on standard diet and received ethanol in drinking water (15% v/v) ad libitum for 4 weeks then fed on the diet supplemented with (1%) of grounded peanut, pistachio and cashew, respectively for another 4 weeks. The results showed that pretreatment of ethanol caused disturbance in glucose homeostasis, pancreatic enzymes secretion, antioxidant status and lipid profile, while the tested nuts produced significant ameliorative effects.
