Background: Adipose mesenchymal stem cells (AMSCs) are a type of stem cell employed to repair damaged organs. This study aimed to see how effective AMSCs are at treating gentamycin-induced hepatorenal damage in rats.

Methods: 18 male Wister rats were assigned into three groups; control, Gentamycin (GM), and GM+AMSCs. GM induced hepatorenal toxicity through daily injection (100 mg/kg, i.p.) for eight days. On day 9, AMSC (106 cells/ml/rat) was injected intravenously.

Results: Creatinine, urea, uric acid, AST, ALP, ALT, TNF-, and MDA levels decreased, whereas IL-10, GSH, and CAT levels increased, indicating the therapeutic potency of intravenous injection AMSCs.

Conclusion: The current study demonstrated the simultaneous therapeutic efficacy of adipose mesenchymal stem cells on the liver and kidney in the treatment of Gentamycin-induced hepatotoxicity. These data show that AMSCs could be a feasible therapy option for liver and kidney disease.
