Chemical composition, antioxidant activity and hepatoprotective potential of Rourea induta Planch. (Connaraceae) against CCl4-induced liver injury in female rats.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate the flavonoid content of an ethanolic leaf extract from the medicinal plant Rourea induta Planch. (RIEE) and to investigate its hepatoprotective potential and in vivo antioxidant effects. METHODS Using samples from carbon tetrachloride-treated Wistar female rats treated orally with or without RIEE, we… (More)
