ABSTRACT:
The present study was carried out to screen and evaluate the hepatoprotective activity of flower extract of Moringa oleifera. Hepatoprotective activity of ethyl acetate extract of Moringa oleifera was examined against Isoniazid induced liver damage in rats using silymarin as control. Enzyme activities of Aspartate Transaminase (AST), Alanine Transaminase (ALT), Catalase and Thio barbituric Acid Reactive substance (TBARS) were analyzed. Results indicate that ethyl acetate extract of M.oleifera has potent activity over isoniazid treatment as compared to control. Results of the present investigation confirm the traditional uses of this plant as a potential hepatoprotective agent.
