This study was designed to test the therapeutic efficacy of some hypotensive drugs and vegetable drinks on some biochemical indicators in male rabbits, where atherosclerosis was developed using 1% cholesterol with food. This study was conducted in June until the end of July 2017 in the Pharmacology Department/ General Company for Pharmaceutical Industry in Samarra. In the study, 50 local rabbits were randomly distributed by 10 groups each containing 5 animals. The first group considered as the control group. The second group is the control group treated with 1% cholesterol with the food, the third group treated with cholesterol (1% and captopril 0.71 mg), group 4 (cholesterol 1% with atenolol 0.71 mg / kg), group 5 (cholesterol 1%, amlodipine 0.07 mg / kg) , group 6 treated with cholesterol 1% and aldomet (0.57 mg / kg), group 7 (cholesterol 1% and furosemide at 3.5 mg / kg), group 8 (cholesterol 1% with garlic syrup 2 ml), group 9 treatment cholesterol 1% and lemon juice), and group 10 Treatment with (1% cholesterol and green tea syrup 2 ml). The results of the study showed a significant increase (P≤0.01)) at the level of each of cholesterol triple and triglycerides, proteins and low density lipoproteins, very low density lipoproteins, also led to obtain a significant decrease in the level of high-density lipoproteins (HDL) in the treatment group with cholesterol 1% compared to control group. At the time of the treatment of anti- pressure drugs: Captopril, Atenolol, Amlodipine ,Aldomet, and Furosmide , there were no significant differences in the cholesterol level of all pharmacological groups. Moral differences were not found in LDL-C and there was a significant decrease (P≤0.01) of the level of triglycerides, proteins and very low density lipoproteins, and there was a significant increase in the level of high-density lipoproteins HDL-C, while treatment with plant juices, there was a significant decrease (P≤0.01) in the level of total cholesterol and triglycerides and LDL, and VLDL, high-density lipoprotein (HDL-C) increased when treated with garlic, lemon and green tea. We conclude pressure drugs of any kind can cure atherosclerosis or prevent high fat, unlike its counterparts OF plants, which have shown a significant effect on controlling lipid profile and reducing their effects and future risks on the heart.
