Abstract: Chronic parenteral administration of cobalt chloride (6 mg/kg) to male rats for 2 weeks or 1 month was accompanied by activation of lipid peroxidation (LPO), a decrease of superoxide dismutase activity and an increase of catalase activity. The membrane toxic action also resulted in a decrease of cortical and medullar Na+,K+-ATPase activity of kidneys, and the decrease in renal functions (glomerular filtration, renal water reabsorption, spontaneous diuresis, electrolyte excretion).
