The effects of ethanolic extracts of Palisota hirsute on carbon tetrachloride induced hepatotoxicity were investigated. Biochemical and histological analyses were carried out, biochemical parameters examined include; total protein, albumin, total bilirubin, aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and alkaline phospha tase (ALP) activities. Consequently, 40 rats (Wistar strain) w ere divided into 5 groups of 8 rats each. The anima ls were fed on rats’ chow and water ad… Expand

TLDR
Data suggest that H. rosasinensis anthocyanin may be protective against carbon tetrachloride-induced liver injury. Expand
Effects of Irvingia grandifolia, Urena lobata and Carica papaya on the Oxidative Status of Normal Rabbits
TLDR
Sub-chronic effects of aqueous extracts of I. grandifolia, U. lobata and C. papaya did not appear to exert any form of oxidative damage on normal rabbits, with respect to liver and pancreatic MDA levels; they even seemed to be protective against lipid peroxidation. Expand

The hepatoprotective cytochrome P-450 enzyme inhibitor isolated from the Nigerian medicinal plant Cochlospermum planchonii is a zinc salt.
TLDR
Synthetic and plant-derived zinc formate were equally effective as inhibitors of cytochrome P-450 enzymes and as hepatoprotective agents in carbon tetrachloride-treated rats. Expand
Investigation of Medicinal Plants of Togo for Antiviral and Antimicrobial Activities
TLDR
The observation that each extract showed a distinctive permutation of target organisms suggests that different bioactive phytochemicals are present in each species. Expand
Further Iinvestigations on the Antiviral Activities of Medicinal Plants of Togo
TLDR
In the seven most active extracts, the anti-HSV activity was considerably enhanced by light, especially UVA (long wavelength UV), although they all showed “dark” antiviral activity as well, which could indicate the presence of multiple antiviral compounds, or a single compound with multiple actions.
