Some in vitro tests were performed using 1,3-dithia-2-thioxo-cyclopent-4-ene (DT827A) to evaluate its mode of action on hepatoprotection. Experiments with leucine, uridine and thymidine uptakes using L-132 cells showed no increase in leucine uptake, but did show a tendency toward increases in both uridine and thymidine uptakes, which suggested a stimulating effect on RNA and DNA synthesis in vitro. DT827A did not influence GSH levels in the HepG2 cultured cell system, and did not show… 
Protective effect of rutin on paracetamol- and CCl4-induced hepatotoxicity in rodents.
TLDR
Results indicate that rutin possesses hepatoprotective activity and the presence of this compound in Artemisia scoparia may explain the folkloric use of the plant in liver damage.
Studies on the protective effects of caffeic acid and quercetin on chemical-induced hepatotoxicity in rodents.
TLDR
The results indicate that caffeic acid and quercetin exhibited hepatoprotective activity possibly through multiple mechanisms.
ANTIOXIDANT AND HEPATOPROTECTIVE ACTIVITIES OF VERNONIA CINEREA EXTRACT AGAINST CCL4 INDUCED HEPATOTOXICITY IN ALBINO RATS Research Article
In the present study, we investigated the protective effect of Vernonia cinerea (F. Asteraceae) against carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) induced hepatotoxicity in albino rats. Hepatotoxicity was
Effect of Aerva lanata against hepatotoxicity of carbon tetrachloride in rats.
TLDR
Observations clearly indicate that PF contains antioxidant alkaloids capable of ameliorating the CCl(4)-induced hepatic injury by virtue of its antioxidant activity.
Dose response effect of rutin a dietary antioxidant on alcohol‐induced prooxidant and antioxidant imbalance – a histopathologic study
TLDR
Rutin supplementation along with ethanol significantly decreased the levels of liver marker enzymes, lipid peroxidation and significantly elevated the activities of liver SOD, CAT, GSH, glutathione peroxidase, vitamins C and E when compared to untreated ethanol supplemented rats.
Fenthion induced-oxidative stress in the liver of adult rats and their progeny: Alleviation by Artemisia campestris
Abstract Fenthion (FEN) is an organophosphate insecticide used in both agricultural and urban areas throughout the world including Tunisia. Recent investigations have proved the crucial role of
Protective and Anti-oxidant Activity of the Euryops arabicus against Paracetamol Induced Hepatorenal Toxicity in Rats
TLDR
The results suggest that Euryops arabicus may protect from paracetamol-induced liver and kidney toxicity, and the elevated TBARS in groups received par acetamol alone decreased in groups given paracet amol and Euryopicus.
The protection of Thymus vulgaris leaves alcoholic extract against hepatotoxicity of alcohol in rats.
TLDR
Protected hepatocytes from damaging by alcohol reflecting improvement on liver performance and inhibition of oxidative stress status of liver was confirmed by histopathological examination, which illustrated that extract showed normalization of degenerated and fibrotic liver tissue as of alcohol-control.

Effect of 1,3-dithia-2-thioxo-cyclopent-4-ene and its derivatives on liver injury induced by carbon tetrachloride and orotic acid in rats.
TLDR
A hepatoprotective potential of theDT827 series compounds was suggested under the conditions of these studies, and DT827B was considered to be the most effective.
Effect of 4-phenyl-1,3-dithia-2-thioxo-cyclopent-4-ene on liver injury induced by repeated exposure to galactosamine plus carbon tetrachloride in rats.
TLDR
A hepatoprotective potential of DT827B was suggested under the conditions of these studies after a therapeutic effect against liver injury induced by D-GalN + CCl4 dose-dependently was suggested.
Effect of diisopropyl 1,3-dithiol-2-ylidenemalonate (NKK-105) on fatty liver induced by carbon tetrachloride.
TLDR
The data suggest that NKK-105 exerts a curative effect on CCl4-induced fatty liver by improving the impaired protein synthesis and by promoting lipoprotein secretion.

TLDR
Results suggest that the inactivation of P450IIE1 may be due to covalent binding of the heme to the protein or the modification of residues near theheme, which prevent substrate interaction.

TLDR
It is difficult to explain the protective effect of malotilate on the liver injury only by this phenomenon, as changes of biochemical parameters and histopathological findings caused by CCl4 were improved thereafter.
Anethole dithiolethione: biochemical considerations.
  • M. Christen
  • Medicine, Chemistry

TLDR
This chapter focuses on the biochemical considerations of Anethole Dithiolethione (ADT), which is marketed as a choleretic and sialagogue, and which also exerts chemoprotective effects.
Use of linoleic acid radiolysis for assay of antioxidant action of anethole dithiolethione.
TLDR
The use of γ-radiolysis of oxygen-saturated linoleic acid-aqueous micelle systems affords an efficient method for evaluating the ability of antioxidant molecules such as ADT to prevent peroxidation chain phenomena.
Carbon tetrachloride‐induced lipid peroxidation dependent on an ethanol‐inducible form of rabbit liver microsomal cytochrome P‐450
TLDR
It is proposed that the induction of this isozyme provides the explanation on a molecular level for the synergism seen of ethanol on CCl4‐dependent hepatotoxicity.
Gene damage induced in human alveolar type II (L-132) cells by exposure to dimethylarsinic acid.
TLDR
The results suggest the possibility of DNA-adduct formation at the early period of DMAA exposure in L-132 cells, which is sensitive to ultraviolet irradiation to cause strand breaks.
The uptake of ascorbic acid into human umbilical vein endothelial cells and its effect on oxidant insult.
TLDR
The central role of endothelial cells in the distribution of AA to the tissues of the body, the use of the HUVE cell system for model studies of the toxicity of oxidants in the human endothelium, and the balance between the antioxidant and pro-oxidant actions of AA are discussed.
