Effects of pre-treatment with the alcoholic extract of I. tinctoria (500 mg/kg body wt/day, p.o. for 21 days) on liver antioxidant defense system during acute hepatitis induced by D-galactosamine (D-GalN)/endotoxin (LPS extracted by phenol water method from E. coli serotype 0111.B4; 300 mg and 30 micrograms/kg body wt/day, i.p., 18 hr before the assay) were investigated on the activities of enzymic antioxidants such as superoxide dismutase, catalase, glutathione peroxidase and glutathione-s… 

Effect of Tridax procumbens on liver antioxidant defense system during lipopolysaccharide-induced hepatitis in D-galactosamine sensitised rats

The results suggest that TP (300 mg/kg body weight orally for 10 days) is very effective in allievating the D-GalN/LPS-induced oxidative stress suggesting its antioxidant property.

Effect of lycopene on oxidative stress induced during d-galactosamine/lipopolysaccharide-sensitized liver injury in rats

The findings reveal that lycopene effectively combated oxidative damage and protected antioxidant defense status of the cell and confirms the antioxidant nature of the phytonutreint against experimental hepatitis.

Results of this study revealed that AGE could afford a significant protection in the alleviation of DGalN/LPS‐induced hepatic damage.

PROTECTIVE EFFECT OF AQUEOUS EXTRACTS OF AFRAMOMUM MELEGUETA ON γ- RADIATION-INDUCED LIVER DAMAGE IN MALE WISTAR RATS

Summary This study was carried out to evaluate the radioprotective potential of aqueous extract of seeds of Aframomum melegueta (A.M.) against gamma radiation-induced (6Gy) liver damage in male

PROTECTIVE EFFECT OF AQUEOUS EXTRACTS OF AFRAMOMUM MELEGUETA ON γ-RADIATION-INDUCED LIVER DAMAGE IN MALE WISTAR RATS

This study was carried out to evaluate the radioprotective potential of aqueous extract of seeds of Aframomum melegueta (A.M.) against gamma radiation-induced (6Gy) liver damage in male Wistar rats.

Effect of Solanum trilobatum against carbon tetrachloride induced hepatic damage in albino rats.

Protective action of Solanum trilobatum extract was evaluated in an animal model of hepatotoxicity induced by carbon tetrachloride to suggest the recovery from CCl4 induced hepatic damage due to its antioxidant and hepatoprotective property.

Hepatoprotective and in vivo antioxidant activities of ethanolic extract of whole fruit of Lagenaria breviflora

It is suggested that treatment with LB extract enhances the recovery from CCL4 induced hepatic damage and oxidative stress via its antioxidant and hepatoprotective properties.

Effect of Terminalia chebula fruit extract on lipid peroxidation and antioxidative system of testis of albino rats

Significant decrease in the activities of antioxidant enzymes, spermatogenesis and increase in the level of lipid peroxidation, indicate the severity of oxidative stress induced as a result of administration of extract of T. chebula.

The effect of melatonin administration on ethanol-induced lipid peroxidation in rats.

Melatonin administration prior to ethanol did not alter MDA and GSH levels of tissue and among antioxidant defence enzymes studied, only CuZn-SOD was found to be increased in animals that received melatonin + ethanol.

Role of Ca2+ on endotoxin-sensitivity by galactosamine challenge: lipid peroxide formation and hepatotoxicity in zymosan-primed mice.

There was little or no effect of Ga1N administration on xanthine oxidase and superoxide dismutase activities in mice given endotoxin, and the Ca(2+)-ATPase activity in liver plasma membrane in the endotoxin/Ga1N-treated mice was markedly decreased as compared with endotoxin alone.

Galactosamine-induced sensitization to the lethal effects of endotoxin.

The data so far suggests that the sensitization to lipopolysaccharide is related only to the early metabolic effects of the hexosamine, which is known to exhibit hepatotoxic activity inducing ultimate necrosis of the hepatocytes.
