Pyrenacantha staudtii (Icacinaceae) is a woody climber used in folk medicine for the treatment of stomach colic, gastric ulcer, dysmenorrhea, threatened abortion and liver diseases, among other uses. 3carbomethoxpyridine (3-CMP) is a compound isolated and characterized from the methanolic leaf extract of Pyrenacantha staudtii by accelerated gradient chromatography. Prophylactic and curative effects of 3-CMP on carbon tetrachloride (CCl4)-induced hepatotoxicity were assessed in rats. Sprague…

Free radical scavenging and hepatoprotective actions of the medicinal herb, Crassocephalum crepidioides from the Okinawa Islands.
TLDR
Results demonstrate that C. crepidioides is a potent antioxidant and protective against GalN plus LPS- or CCl4-induced hepatotoxicity and also inhibited by the extract pretreatment.
Effect of Rubia cordifolia extract on acetaminophen and CCl4‐induced hepatotoxicity
The hepatoprotective activity of an aqueous‐methanol extract of Rubia cordifolia (Rubiaceae) was investigated against acetaminophen and CCl4‐induced hepatic damage. Acetaminophen produced 100%

Protective activity of Glycyrrhiza glabra Linn. on carbon tetrachloride-induced peroxidative damage
OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the potential efficacy of Glycyrrhiza glabra Linn. (Fabaceae) in protecting tissues from peroxidative damage in CCl4-intoxicated rats. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Peroxidative
Prevention of hepatorenal toxicity with Sonchus asper in gentamicin treated rats
TLDR
The preventive role of SAME is suggested for gentamicin induced toxicity that could be attributed by phytochemicals having antioxidant and free radical scavenging properties.
Hepatoprotective activity of Ficus carica Linn. leaf extract against carbon tetrachloride-induced hepatotoxicity in rats
TLDR
The methanol extract of the leaves of Ficus carica Linn was evaluated for hepatoprotective activity in rats with liver damage induced by carbon tetrachloride and exhibited a significant protective effect by lowering the serum levels of aspartate aminotransferase, alanine aminotinase, total serum bilirubin, and malondialdehyde equivalent, an index of lipid peroxidation of the liver.
Isolation and characterization of 3-carbomethoxypyridine from the leaves of Pyrenacantha staudtii Hutch and Dalz (Icacinaceae).
TLDR
The chemical isolation and characterization of 3-carbomethoxypyridine from one of the active fractions of the methanolic extract of Pyrenacantha staudtii leaves is reported for the first time.
Antimalarial activities and toxicities of three plants used as traditional remedies for malaria in the Democratic Republic of Congo: Croton mubango , Nauclea pobeguinii and Pyrenacantha staudtii
TLDR
Results from the in-vivo tests of antimalarial activity showed that, at a daily oral dose of 200 mg/kg, all the dichloromethane extracts, the petroleum-ether, chloroformic, ethyl-acetate and residual water-soluble fractions from C. mubango and N. staudtii showed some signs of toxicity in mice, but had no effect on the blood levels of creatinine or urea.
Hepatoprotective activity studies of herbal formulations
TLDR
Polyherbal formulations F1 and F2 were developed for treatment of liver disorders by exploiting the knowledge of traditional system of medicine and evaluated for hepatoprotective activity using acute liver toxicity models of CCl4 and Paracetamol induced liver damage in rats.
Hepatoprotective effect ofVitex negundo against carbon tetrachloride-induced liver damage
Alcoholic extract of the seeds ofVitex negundo Linn. was obtained by cold maceration. A dose of 250 mg/kg (1/6 of LD50) of the extract was selected to study the hepatoprotective action against carbon
