The production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) is considered to be a major factor in oxidative cell injury. The antioxidant activity or the inhibition of the generation of free radicals is important in providing protection against such hepatic damage. Silymarin, derived from the milk thistle plant, Silybium marianum, has been used in traditional medicine as a remedy for diseases of the liver and biliary tract. In the present study, the effect of hepatoprotective drug silymarin on body weight…

Hepatoprotective and Antioxidant Effects of Silybum Marianum Plant against Hepatotoxicity Induced by Carbon Tetrachloride in Rats

It could be concluded that Silybium marianum plant have high safety, hepatoprotective effect and antioxidant activity in rats, and intake of Silybum marianUM plant may be beneficial for patients who suffer from liver diseases associated with oxidative stress.

Maltol, a Food Flavoring Agent, Attenuates Acute Alcohol-Induced Oxidative Damage in Mice

Interestingly, pretreatment of maltol effectively relieved alcohol-induced oxidative damage in a dose-dependent manner and appeared to possess promising anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory capacities.

ANTIOXIDANT EFFECT OF PINEAPPLE (ANANAS COSMOSUS) PEEL EXTRACT ON ALCOHOL-INDUCED OXIDATIVE STRESS IN SPLENIC TISSUES OF MALE ALBINO RATS

ABSTRACT Oxidative stress was induced by oral administration of ethanol (20% w/v) at a dosage of 5 mL/kg body weight in rats. After 28 days of treatment, the rats were fasted overnight and

Hepatoprotective effect of silymarin.

It has been shown that silymarin treatment caused a slight increase in the survival of patients with cirrhotic alcoholism compared with untreated controls, and may contribute to the antioxidant defense of the liver.

Baccharis trimera protects against ethanol induced hepatotoxicity in vitro and in vivo.

Effect of lecithin with vitamin-B complex and tocopheryl acetate on long-term effect of ethanol induced immunomodulatory activities.

It is argued that lecithin with vitamin-B complex was a new promising therapeutic approach in controlling ethanol induced immunomodulatory activities involving liver damage processes as well as prevention of oxidative stress with correction of nutritional deficiency.

Milk thistle in liver diseases: past, present, future

Silymarin has been used to treat alcoholic liver disease, acute and chronic viral hepatitis and toxin‐induced liver diseases, and may act as a toxin blockade agent by inhibiting binding of toxins to the hepatocyte cell membrane receptors.

Silymarin alleviates hepatic oxidative stress and protects against metabolic disorders in high-fat diet-fed mice

Novel data indicate that silymarin has potent anti-diabetic actions through alleviating oxidative stress and inflammatory response, partially by inhibiting hepatic NADPH oxidase expression and the NF-κB signaling.
