Study of troponin, creatine kinase biomarkers, and histopathological lesions in experimental Nerium oleander toxicity in rats and mice

Introduction Oleanders are tolerant evergreen plants which originated from Mediterranean countries. Nerium oleander is a small evergreen tree with a wide geographical and ecological distribution. Its flowers grow in clusters in terminal branches and display various colours including yellow, pink, red, peach, and white. It was reported that all parts of these plants can be toxic to insects, different animals, and humans ( 18 ). Oleander poisoning is not infrequent in domestic animals and man, and there have been some cases of accidental toxicosis in
