Effect of Wedelolactone on CCl4 Induced Liver Damage

Sunita Dalal

Abstract :

The hepatoprotective activity of ethanolic extract and wedelolactone isolated from EcliptaalbaL. (Family: Asteraceae) was studied against CCl induced, acute hepatotoxicity in rats. 4 Hepatoprotective activity was studied by estimating biochemical analysis of blood viz. serum enzyme activities of aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT), alkaline phosphatase (ALP), protein and bilirubin. The treatment with wedelolactone showed a dosedependent reduction of CCl induced toxicity, indicating the compound could preserve the normal 4 functional status of the liver.
