Renal toxicity is one of the most severe complications that can occur with cisplatin (CIS) administration in cancer patients. Montelukast (ML) renoprotective outcome contrary to CIS-drawn nephrotoxicity remains obscure. Therefore, adult male Sprague-Dawley rats were orally given ML (10 and 20 mg/kg/day) 5 days before and after single CIS (5 mg/kg; i.p.) treatment. ML returned blood urea nitrogen, as well as serum creatinine and gamma glutamyl transferase that were elevated by CIS to normal level. The improved kidney function tests corroborated the attenuation of CIS renal injury at the microscopical level. It also reduced serum/renal nitric oxide and renal hemeoxygenase-1. Meanwhile, ML hindered the raised levels of serum endothelin-1, serum and renal tumor necrosis factor-α, and monocyte chemoattractant protein-1. These effects were associated by deceased caspase-3 expression in kidney after ML treatment. In conclusion, ML guards against CIS-induced nephrotoxicity via anti-inflammatory and antiapoptotic properties.
