Abstract

The antihepatotoxic activity of the ethanolic extract of the root bark of C. spinosa and of its petrol, ether and ethyl acetate fractions was evaluated using the CCl4 model of liver injury in rats. All tested products, particularly the petrol fraction, showed significant reduction of the elevated serum transaminases. Histopathological studies supported the biochemical findings.
