ABSTRACT:
In the present study, the pre-treatment of rats with Amorphophallus paeoniifolius. Alcoholic and aqueous extracts protected the animals against CCl4 induced hepatotoxicity. The treatment significantly reduced the serum GOT, GPT, ALP, oxidation of GSH, GST levels and liver weight. The hepatoprotective nature of aqueous and alcoholic extracts of this plant against CCl4 induced hepatic oxidative stress may be attributed to the presence of phenolic compounds. Further this was evidenced by free radical scavenging activity, reduced lipid peroxidation, reduced glutathione (GSH) radical scavenging activity and nitric oxide scavenging activity by both extracts of Amorphophallus paeonifolius. The present study reveals that Amorphophallus paeoniifolius possesses a hepatoprotective action.
