  • BACKGROUND In this study, we tried to evaluate whether the ethyl acetate (EtOAc) extract of Teucrium polium, with a high antioxidant activity, is able to prevent the incidence of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis. METHODS Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis was induced in male N-Mary rats using a methionine/choline-deficient (MCD) diet. Rats were given normal diet (A), normal diet+EtOAc extract (B), MCD diet (C) and MCD diet+EtOAc (D). RESULTS The MCD diet led to grade 1 liver steatosis, inflammation… CONTINUE READING
