Majoon-e-Dabeed-ul-ward (MD) is a hepatoprotective unani formulation with strong antioxidative effects. The purpose of the work was to investigate the effect of Majoon-eDabeed-ul-Ward (MD) on ethanol (EtOH) induced cell death and its probable role in activating Nrf2/HO-1 pathway. Cytoprotective role of MD in preventing ethanol induced cell death in liver cells was determined by MTT assay. Protein expression levels of Nrf2 and HO-1 was determined by immunoblotting using antibodies against the… Expand
