Cisplatin (Cis) is an anticancer compound, which is used for the treatment of various cancers. Sumatriptan (Suma) is a selective agonist of 5-hydroxytryptamine 1B/1D (5HT1B/1D) receptor, which is prescribed for the management of migraine. It is well-established that Suma has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. We have explored the protective effects of Suma in the mitigation of Cis-induced nephrotoxicity.
