ABSTRACT:
The ethanolic fraction of Calotropis gigantea flowers (CGFE) was evaluated for its possible hepatoprotective potential in Wistar rats. The CGFE (250 mg/kg and 500 mg/kg, bw p.o.) showed a remarkable hepatoprotective activity against cyclosporine-A induced hepatotoxicity as judged from the level of serum markers for liver damage. Cyclosporine-A induced a significant rise in serum glutamate oxaloacetate transaminase (SGOT), serum glutamate pyruvate transaminase (SGPT), alkaline phosphatase (ALP) and lipid profile levels. The cotreatment of animals with CGFE (250 mg/kg and 500 mg/kg, p.o.) significantly decreased the elevated serum marker enzyme and lipid profile levels near to normal. The activity of the CGFE was comparable to the standard drug, silymarin (100 mg/kg, p.o.). Further histopathological studies support the above finding.
