The radioprotective effect of Biophytum sensitivum methanol extract was studied using in vivo mice model . Animals were exposed to whole body gamma irradiation (6 Gy/animal) after treatment with B. sensitivum (50mg/kg b.wt.) followed by estimation of cytosolic enzymes, level of antioxidants, hematological parameters, bone marrow cellular progenitors, serum cytokine levels and spleen hematopoietic colonies. Administration of B. sensitivum could reduce the enhanced level of ALP, GPT and LPO… CONTINUE READING
