|Abstract:||Restoration of liver function by the application of Enicostemma littorale Blume (aerial part) powder in p-DAB (p-dimethylaminoazobenzene) induced animals was evaluated by analyzing the serum total cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL-cholesterol, serum g-glutamyl transpeptidase and liver malondialdehyde levels. Administration of the chosen plant reduces the hyperlipidemia at significant level and also reduces the lipid peroxidation and significantly increased HDL-cholesterol level in serum. When comparing the results with the standard antilipidemia agent namely, vitamin E, the results obtained using the plant is highly comparable.|
