[Effect of silymarin on mouse liver damage, production and activity of tumor necrosis factor].

Abstract

Tumor necrosis factor (TNF) has been well-characterized as a prominent mediator in the development of liver injury. Effects of silymarin (SB) on mouse liver damage, TNF production and activity were studied. Pretreatment with SB (25-50 mg.kg-1, i.p., bid x 3 d) before the lipopolysaccharides (LPS) injection markedly alleviated liver injury and diminished LPS… (More)
