Author(s): S Mohideen, R Ilavarasan, E Sasikala, R Thirumalai Kumaran

Aqueous extract of the seeds of Nigella sativa were tested for hepatoprotective activity on male Wistar rats against carbon tetrachtoride induced hepatotoxicity. Various biochemical parameters were studied to evaluate the hepatoprotective activity. Aqueous extract showed significant hepatoprotective activity against carbon tetrachloride-induced toxicity on the liver indicating promising hepatoprotective activity.
