Abstract
Background: Andrographis paniculata (Burm.f.) Nees (Acanthaceae) (AP), containing the major active principle, andrographolide (AG) has been used ethnomedically in the treatment of various diseases. In this context, we have evaluated the effects of Andrographolide on streptozotocin induced oxidative and osmotic stress in Sprague-Dawley rats. Objective: To study the hepatoprotective efficacy of andrographolide on STZ induced diabetic hepatotoxic Sprague Dawley rats. Materials and Methods: Thirty two Sprauge-Dawley rats were taken and maintained under standard experimental conditions and were divided in to four groups, each contain eight rats. Group-I normal control, group-II STZ control and Group-III and IV STZ and treated with AG at 1.5mg, 2.5 mg/kg body weight. The study continued for ?? days and clinical chemistry parameters and oxidative enzyme activities were measured. Gross necropsy and histopathological changes between control and experimental groups were studied. Results and Conclusion: Oral administration of AG reduced the oxidative stress, hepatic marker enzymes towards normalcy in a dose dependent manner. Liver steatosis is significantly reduced in AG treated rats. In conclusion, Andrographolide proved to be effective at both the doses and among the doses, the higher dose proved to be effective in reversing the streptozotocin induced alterations caused by oxidative and osmotic stress and ionic imbalances in the study. Andrographolide acts as potential molecule to treat the hepatic damage. The molecular mechanism behind the hepatoprotective activity of andrographolide is in progress.
