Abstract: Objective To evaluate the influence of Zinc Oxide nanoparticles (ZnO NPs) on Albino male mice reproductive system. Methodology Albino male mice were used in this study, divided to three groups (6 mice to each) control group, first treated (150mg/kg.bw.) and second treated (350mg/kg.bw.). Result After animal dissected, we tacked organs of reproductive system (testis, prostate, seminal vesicles and epididymis).The change in all tissues of reproductive system showed in (350mg/kg. bw.) dose treated with ZnO NPs, While the changes showed only in seminal vesicles and epididymis in the groups treated with (150mg/kg.bw. ZnO NPs). Conclusion The study established that a significant negative effect of ZnO NPs on Albino male mice reproductive tissues. Recommendation Study the mechanism of ZnO NPs inside the body to know how can effects on body tissues.
