CONTEXT Nephrolepis biserrata L. (Nephrolepidaceae) has been used in folk medicine for protection against different diseases. OBJECTIVE The current research investigated the protective effect of the methanol extract of N. biserrata leaves against carbon tetrachloride (CCl4)-induced hepatic damage in rats. MATERIALS AND METHODS Total phenolic content and 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical scavenging activity were estimated. In addition, Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats were randomly… CONTINUE READING
