In the present investigation anti-tumour, anti-mutagenic and chemomodulatory potential of Chlorophytum borivilianum were evaluated. Chlorophytum borivilianum root extract had no toxic effect up to a dose of 800 mg/kg body weight/day. Significant increase (p<0.05 to p<0.001) in the activity of reduced glutathione (GSH), catalase (CAT) and superoxide dismutase (SOD) and a significant decrease in the hepatic MDA level were observed at 100, 400, and 800 mg/kg body weight of Chlorophytum… CONTINUE READING
