Rutin is a flavonoid of the flavonol type found in many typical plants, such as buckwheat, passion flower, apple and tea. Acrylamide (ACR) is a known industrial toxic chemical that produces neurotoxicity characterized by progressive neuronal degeneration. Rats were randomly divided into Control, ACR, Pregabalin and Rutin treated groups. Male wistar rats were treated with ACR (50 mg/kg/ i.p.) for 4 weeks which produce typical symptoms of neuropathy in rats. Pregabalin (10 mg/kg) and Rutin (50 & 100 mg/kg) were administered orally for 4 weeks after one hour of ACR administration. ACR enhanced the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS). Treatment with Rutin significantly improved neurological score. Rutinsignificantly (p<0.001) attenuated acrylamide induced oxidative stress markers. The expression of Bcl-2 was up-regulated and TNF-α, IL-6 and Bax were down-regulated by rutin treatment. From our results, it can be concluded that rutinshowed an ameliorative effect against ACR induced neurotoxicity in rats through its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antiapoptotic actions.
