A Patent by a Research Team at University of Anbar

     A research team from the College of Science at University of Anbar managed to obtain a patent and tagged (the protective effect of Moringa oleifera seed extract in reducing the toxicity of nano-lead in male albino rats). The research team consists of Prof. Dr. Abed Ali Thakir and Prof. Dr. Ismat Ramzy Abdel Ghafour and Dr. Faham Jassim Muhammad. The aim of the study is to reduce the toxicity of heavy metals with nanostructures by using Moringa plant extract. The study included research on the possibility of using Moringa oleifera seed extract to prevent poisoning caused by nano-lead in Wistar Rats. The rats were divided into six groups of seven animals for each group. The groups were treated as follows: The first with Moringa seed extract at a concentration of 160 mg/kg, the second with commercial nano-lead at a concentration of 5 mg/kg, the third with prepared nano-lead at a concentration of 5.3 mg/kg, the fourth with Moringa seed extract in addition to commercial nano-lead, and the fifth with Moringa seed extract + prepared nano-lead, and the sixth group is the control group. The accumulated lead, in the organs of rats and its effects on some biochemical and physiological aspects, antioxidants and histological variables, has been estimated. The results showed that Moringa extract had a promising preventive effect against nano-lead toxicity in all studied variables.
