In experimental animals it has been shown to be carcinogenic. This study was designed to evaluate the effects of exogenous melatonin administration on the CCl 4 -induced changes of some biochemical parameters in rat blood.
Rats in CCl 4 group were injected subcutaneously with CCl 4 0. Control rats were treated with olive oil. Melatonin treatment did not cause a significantly change in serum urea, total protein, and albumin levels. On the other hand, melatonin administration significantly decreased serum magnesium levels.
These results indicate that melatonin could be a protective agent against the CCl 4 toxicity in rats, most likely through its antioxidant and free radical scavenger effects.
