The present study was designed to evaluate the protective role of tannic acid against copper-induced alteration in lipid peroxidation and antioxidant function in rats. The results show the toxic effect of copper indicated by increasing of lipid peroxidation markers and decrease in the levels of plasma enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidants. Administration of tannic acid at different doses (20, 40 and 80 mg/kg body weight) show a significant modification of lipid peroxidation markers and the levels of plasma enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidants. This study demonstrated the protective role of tannic acid in reducing the toxic effects of copper in experimental rats.
