Aluminum (Al) has various adverse effects on health of humans and animals. The aim of present study was to demonstrate that Lactobacillus plantarum CCFM639 can alleviate the adverse effects on liver and kidney of mice caused by chronic Al exposure. Animals were assigned into control, CCFM639 only, Al only, Al plus CCFM639, and Al plus deferiprone groups. The strain was given by oral gavage for 14 weeks, and Al was introduced via drinking water for the first 8 weeks. Analyses of Al and trace elements levels in feces, blood, and tissues were performed. The biochemical markers (GSH, GPx, SOD, CAT, and MDA) of oxidative stress in livers and kidneys, as well as the levels of ALT, AST, BUN, andCRE in blood, were determined. Our results showed that L. plantarum CCFM639 can significantly reduce Al accumulation in tissues, regulate imbalance of trace elements, and thereby alleviate oxidative stress and pathological changes in hepatic and renal tissues. Therefore, L. plantarum CCFM639 couldalleviate Al-induced hepatic and renal injuries, and the possible mechanisms may involve in regulating the imbalance of trace elements.
