|The liver plays an essential role in metabolism and detoxification of xenobiotics including pesticides. Due to these functions, hepatotoxicity continues to be among the main threats to public health, Therefore, the present study was designed to evaluate the antioxidant and hepatoprotective effects of Cedrelopsis grevei (C. grevei) leaves against cypermethrin induced oxidative stress in male mice. For hepatoprotective evaluation, male mice were daily exposed to Cyp and/or C. grevei by gavages for 28 days. Hepatoprotective effects were demonstrated by significant alterations in serum liver dysfunction biomarker enzymes, liver lipid peroxidation and antioxidant enzymes. In view of the data of the present study, it can deduce that cypermethrin caused oxidative damage and liver dysfunction in male mice. However, supplementation of C. grevei extract has attenuated the insults of those biochemical parameters. Results indicated that administration of C. grevei is useful, easy, and economical to protect humans against pesticide toxicity. The results presented here can be considered as the leading information on the hepatoprotective and antioxidant properties of C. grevei extracts.|
