Abstract

The present study was carried out to observe the hepatoprotective effect and antioxidant activity of the aqueous extract of the roots of Polygonum bistorta (PB) (100 mg/kg) and Zingiber roseum (ZR) (100 mg/kg) in rats treated with carbon tetrachloride (0.15 ml/kg, i.p.). Extract of PB and ZR at the tested doses restored the levels of liver homogenate enzymes (glutathione peroxidase, glutathione-S-transferase, superoxide dismutase and catalase enzymes significantly. The activities of MTT assay significantly recovered the damage towards normal. This study shows that Zingiber roseum has a more liver protective effect in comparison to Polygonum bistorta and against carbon tetrachloride- induced hepatotoxicity and possess antioxidant activities and extracts exhibited moderate anticancer activity towards cell viability at higher concentration.
