KAYEDPOOR, Parvin; MOHAMADI, Shima; KARIMZADEH-BARDEI, Latifeh  and  NABIUNI, Mohammad. Anti-inflammatory Effect of Silymarin on Ovarian Immunohistochemical Localization of TNF-http://fbpe/img/ijmorphol/v35n2/art54_simbolo.jpg Associated with Systemic Inflammation in Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2017, vol.35, n.2, pp.723-732. ISSN 0717-9502.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-95022017000200054.

Tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-a) and interleukin (IL)-6, are prominent mediators of inflammation and have been confirmed to be elevated in at least a subgroup of women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). In this study, the effects of Silymarin (SLM) on the expression TNF-a, IL-6, CRP and symptoms of PCOS were studied. In this research, PCOS was induced by injection of Estradiol Valerate. PCOS rats were divided into control and experimental groups received intraperitoneal injection SLM extract daily. After syndrome induction, ovaries were collected for histological and immunohistochemical evaluations. Serum IL-6 was detected by the ELISA kit. The results indicated the significant reduction in inflammatory markers and significant changes follicular layers thickness in the treatment group as compared with control. It can be concluded that having anti-inflammatory substances, Silymarin is effective in symptoms of this syndrome and metabolic syndrome.

Keywords : Immunohistochemistry; Inflammation; Silybum Marianum extract.
