Figure 2: Histological studies. (a) Section of normal rat kidney showing normal organization of tubular epithelial cells and glomeruli (Group I). (b) Section of rat kidney showing necrotic changes in kidney tissues and congestion (Curative control) (Group II). (c) Section of rat kidney showing moderate regenerative changes in kidney tissue (curative lower dose). (d) Section of rat kidney showing marked regenerative changes in renal tubule and Bowman's capsule (curative higher dose). (e) Section of rat kidney showing congestion in glomeruli, vacuolization, and necrotic changes (Prophlactic control) (Group V). (f) Section of rat kidney showing mild regeneration of kidney tissue (prophylactic lower dose) (Group VI). (g) Section of rat kidney showing regenerative changes in kidney tissue and similar to normal architecture (prophylactic higher dose) (Group VI). (h) Section of rat kidney showing regenerative changes in kidney tissue and similar to normal architecture (prophylactic higher dose) (Group VI). (i) Section of rat kidney showing almost normal organization of Bowman's capsule and distal convoluted tubule (Only higher dose of ethanol extract of Lens culinaris) (Group IX). RT: Renal tubule, BC: Bowman's capsule, PT: Proximal tubule
