Kaempferol is a biologically active component present in various plants. The hepatoprotective effect of kaempferol in drug-induced liver injury has been proven, while its effect against alcoholic liver injury (ALI) remains unclear. Hence, the present study aimed to evaluate the effect of kaempferol against ALI in mice. The experimental ALI mice model was developed and the mice were treated with different doses of kaempferol for 4 weeks. The liver functions were observed by monitoring the…

Protective effect of Alhagi sparsifolia against acetaminophen-induced liver injury in mice

The results demonstrate that Alhagi sparsifolia protects mice liver tissue against APAPinduced hepatic injury partly via decreased oxidative stress and inhibition of CYP2E1 expression.

Hepatoprotective effect of gastrodin against alcohol-induced liver injury in mice

Gastrodin-increased nuclear transcription factor 2 (Nrf2) translocates to the nucleus and enhanced the activity of anti-oxidant enzymes, and could thereby ameliorate alcohol-induced liver injury in mice.

Kaempferol suppresses acetaminophen-induced liver damage by upregulation/activation of SIRT1

Kaempferol decreased the acetylation of all SIRT1 targets including PARP1, p53, NF-κB, FOXO-1 and p53 that mediate antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-apoptotic effects to treat APAP-induced hepatotoxicity.

Protective effect of acidic polysaccharide from Schisandra chinensis on acute ethanol-induced liver injury through reducing CYP2E1-dependent oxidative stress.

Hepatoprotective efficacy of Premna integrifolia L. leaves against aflatoxin B1-induced toxicity in mice.

Kaempferol prevents cadmium chloride-induced liver damage by upregulating Nrf2 and suppressing NF-κB and keap1

The protective effect of kaempferol against CdCl2-induced hepatic damage is mediated by antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects driven by upregulating Nrf2/HO-1 axis and suppressing the NF-κB p65 and keap1.

Antioxidant Activity and Protective Effects of Enzyme-Extracted Oudemansiella radiata Polysaccharides on Alcohol-Induced Liver Injury

The antioxidation in vitro and hepatoprotective effects of enzyme-extracted Oudemansiella radiata polysaccharides (En-OPS) indicated that En-OPS could be suitable to be an ingredient of preventing alcoholic liver diseases (ALD).

Kaempferol protects mice from d-GalN/LPS-induced acute liver failure by regulating the ER stress-Grp78-CHOP signaling pathway.

Protective effect of wild Corni fructus methanolic extract against acute alcoholic liver injury in mice

C. fructus could be a promising natural substance for ameliorating acute alcohol-induced oxidative stress and hepatic injury and is evaluated against acute alcoholic liver injury.



Protective Effects of Kaempferol on Isoniazid- and Rifampicin-Induced Hepatotoxicity

To the authors' knowledge, this is the first report of kaempferol’s utility as an adjuvant for preventing CYP2E1-mediated hepatotoxicity induced by drugs such as INH and RIF.

Puerarin improves metabolic function leading to hepatoprotective effects in chronic alcohol-induced liver injury in rats.

Enhancement by pyrazole of lipopolysaccharide‐induced liver injury in mice: Role of cytochrome P450 2E1 and 2A5

Induction of CYP2E1 plays an important role in the enhancement of LPS liver injury by pyrazole, but some contribution by CYP1E1 cannot be excluded and CMZ protected against the pyrazoles enhanced L PS liver injury and oxidative stress.

Mitochondrial protective effects of Myrica rubra extract against acetaminophen-induced toxicity.

The results showed that 50, 150, and 450 mg/kg MCE could restore AAP-induced changes in mice liver in a dose-dependent manner and the mechanisms behind the hepatoprotective effects of MCE may be related to the mitochondrial protection of liver cells, especially of VDAC, an important protein on the outer membrane of the mitochondria.

A review of natural products with hepatoprotective activity

The present work constitutes a review of the literature on plant extracts and chemically defined molecules of natural origin with hepatoprotective activity and intends to aid researchers in the study of natural products useful in the treatment of liver diseases.

Results show that adenovirus-mediated overexpression of CYP2E1 could induce liver toxicity in mice and suggests a mechanism involving oxidative/nitrosative stress.

Metabolism, oral bioavailability and pharmacokinetics of chemopreventive kaempferol in rats.

The low F of kaempferol is attributed in part to extensive first-pass metabolism by glucuronidation and other metabolic pathways in the gut and in the liver.
