The effect of 90 days oral administration of a new hepatoprotective agent 'Picroliv' was carried out in rats and monkeys. None of the toxicity parameters-general observable behaviour, growth rate, haemogram, biochemistry and histopatholo...

Picroliv, a hepatoprotective agent prepared from P. kurroa, was assayed for its effects on mice chromosomes in bone marrow cells. Treatment of mice with 0.1, 1.0 and 10.0 mg/kg b.w. per os did not enhance the magnitude of chromosomal aberrations a...

Picroliv, the active constituent of the plant Picrorhiza Kurroa, showed significant hepatoprotective as well as anticholestatic activity against rifampicin-induced hepatic damage. Rifampicin (50 mg/kg ip times 6 days) resulted in the reduction of...

Alcohol abuse is thought to be a risk factor for the cause of liver damage, hyperlipidemia and insulin resistance. An alcohol-fed rat model was developed by chronic administration of ethanol to rats which caused significant alteration in liver fun...

Picroliv, the hepatoprotective principle of the plant Picrorhiza kurroa, showed a dose-dependent (1.5-12 mg/kg .times. 7) choleretic effect in conscious rats and anaesthetized guinea pigs. It also possessed a marked anticholestatic effect against...

The hepatoprotective activity of picroliv, the active standardised fraction of Picrorhiza kurrooa, was evaluated against alcohol-CCl4 induced liver damage in the rat at the doses of 3, 6 and 12 mg/kg/day, p.o. for 7 days. 2. It showed a signifi...
