Trianthema portulacastrum L. reverses hepatic lipid peroxidation, glutathione status and activities of related antioxidant enzymes in carbon tetrachloride-induced chronic liver damage in mice.

Abstract

To understand the mechanism of the antihepatotoxic potential of an ethanolic extract of Trianthema portulacastrum, experiments were carried out to monitor its effect on hepatic lipid peroxidation, glutathione status and activities of several antioxidant enzymes following the chronic treatment of mice with carbon tetrachloride (CCl(4)). CCl(4) was… (More)
