In the present study, the dose related effect of the aqueous seed extract of Carica papaya Linn. extract (CPE) was evaluated by pre-treating three groups of rats (made up of six male rats per group) with 100 – 400 mg/kg body weight per oral of the extract for 7 days before challenging with 1.5 ml/kg body weight of 20% carbon tetrachloride in olive oil in addition to the untreated control and model control rats. Also, the time-course effect of 400 mg/kg per oral of the extract were… Expand
