Effect of cadmium on ovary increased reactive oxygen species (ROS) was studied in rat. Lipid peroxidation and the reactive oxygen species, hydrogen peroxide were increased in the ovary of Wistar rat administered with cadmium (50 and 200 ppm) in drinking water on 45 and 65 days of post natal development. Elevation of reactive oxygen species and lipid peroxidation is suggestive of tissue damage in the rat ovary due to cadmium poisoning.
Key words: Cadmium, lipid peroxidation, reactive oxygen species, hydrogen peroxide ovary.
