Table 2 Effect of pumpkin seed oil on the percentage of DNA damage (%DNA), tail length (TL), and tail moment (TM), in the testicular tissue of rat administrated with Al2O3-NPs

From: Testicular dysfunction induced by aluminum oxide nanoparticle administration in albino rats and the possible protective role of the pumpkin seed oil
