Abstract: Methotrexate (MTX) is a commonly used folic acid antagonist for the treatment of neoplasia and some autoimmune diseases. Resveratrol has important anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and immunomodulatory properties. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of resveratrol on MTX-induced ovary-damage and oxidative stress in rats. We hypothesized that supplement of resveratrol could counteract MTX-induced cytotoxicity in rat ovary. Albino Wistar female rats were randomly divided into three groups: Healthy control (HC), resveratrol + methotrexate (RMTX) and methotrexate (MTX) group. Their ovaries were removed. Biochemical and histopathological methods were utilized for evaluation of the oxidative ovary-damage. MDA was found to be higher but tGSH and SOD were lower in the ovarian tissue of the rat group administered MTX, but it is observed that these ratios are reversed in HC and in RMTX groups. MTX treatment induced ovary damage and especially pre-treatment with resveratrol provided protective effect against this MTX-induced ovary-damaged.
