The objective of the present study was to investigate the ability of n-butanol extract obtained from Rhantherium suaveolens aerial parts and vitamin E to modulate valproic acid-induced hepatotoxicity and oxidative damage in pregnant mice. Valproic acid (VPA) injection in mice at a dose of 300 mg/kg induced hepatic dysfunction revealed by a significant increase in the serum of AST and ALT.

Abstract

The objective of the present study was to investigate the ability of n-butanol extract obtained from Rhantherium suaveolens aerial parts and vitamin E to modulate valproic acid-induced hepatotoxicity and oxidative damage in pregnant mice. Valproic acid (VPA) injection in mice at a dose of 300 mg/kg induced hepatic dysfunction revealed by a significant increase in the serum of AST and ALT. The pretreatment of mice with vitamin E (100 mg/kg) and butanol extract (100 mg/kg) protected liver cells from oxidative stress permitting the prevention of liver injury. Histopathological observations also correlated with the biochemical parameters. The polyphenolic compounds of this extract probably confer protection against oxidative stress generated in liver by VPA.
