The hepatoprotective effects of Boerhaavia diffusa was studied against the hepatotoxicity induced by oxaliplatin. Male Wistar rats were divided in three groups.Group N* control group (0.9% normal saline), Group NP0 oxaliplatin treated group and Group NP2 were prophylactically treated with Boerhaavia diffusa and then with oxaliplatin in order to assess the protective effects of Boerhaavia diffusa against the toxicity of oxaliplatin. The levels of liver enzymes ALT, AST and γ-GT were significantly reduced in the group prophylactically treated with Boerhaavia diffusa (NP2) compared with the group treated with oxaliplatin (NP0). Boerhaavia diffusa was effective in reducing risk of hypercholestremia associated with oxaliplatin. Histopathological examination of rat liver revealed that prophylactically treated group with Boerhaavia diffusa was effective in reducing oxidative stress induced steatohepatitis by oxaliplatin.
