Abstract

There has been no investigation on the efficacy of quince extracts (Cydonia oblonga Miller) against hyperlipidemia-induced renal injury. In the present study, this hypothesis was evaluated by a histological comparison of kidney tissues from New Zealand white rabbits fed on a cholesterol-rich diet with and without a quince leaf extract supplement. Mild glomerular injury and moderate tubular damage were apparent in all rabbits in disease group. Meanwhile, milder tubular injury was detected in all animals in treatment group. The results were consistent with the hypothesis and suggest that a more extended study would be justified.
