Abstract

The present study was aimed to evaluate the hepatoprotective activity of methanol extract against carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) induced hepatic damage in rats. CCl4 caused liver damage in rats manifested by significant rise in serum enzyme levels. To examine the effect of the extract male albino rats were used and extract was administered orally at a dose of 300 mg/kg once daily. The results obtained showed that there were reductions in the activities of serum SGOT, SGPT, ALP, total protein, total bilirubin from 97.67±1.78, 275.67±2.86, 934 ± 1.41, 1.13±0.227 and 7.50±0.707 in animals treated with toxic doses of CCl4 to 78.33±1.08, 53±1.41, 870±0.707, 0.67±0.04 and 6.47±0.356 in animal treated with extract before CCl4 intoxication. The extract could also repair the abnormal lipid profile. From these results, it is concluded that methanol extract of Alpina nigra leaves has hepatoprotective activity in CCl4-induced hepatic damage in rats.
