Figure 4: Kidney histology of control and experimental rats (H and E, ×40). (a and b) Normal kidney histology. (c) Ethanol fed rat shows severe degenerative alterations in the tubules, congestion of blood vessels and diffused inflammatory cell infiltration. (d) Ethanol + zingerone (10 mg/kg body weight) treated rat kidney shows few tubules containing fat vacuoles. (e) Ethanol + zingerone (20 mg/kg body weight) treated rat kidney shows slight congestion of peritubular capillaries and normal glomeruli. (f) Ethanol + zingerone (40 mg/kg body weight) treated rat kidney shows normal histology
