Objective: The aim of the study was to investigate the antioxidant and hepatoprotective activity of Pellionia heyneana Wedd. leaf ethanolic extract. Methods: The antioxidant potential of the extract was studied by DPPH and Nitric oxide radical scavenging activity. The total antioxidant activity of the extract was also studied by phosphomolybdenum method. The hepatoprotective activity of the extract was evaluated against carbon tetrachloride (CCl 4 ) induced liver damage in Wistar albino rats… Expand
