Abstract

Hypercholesterolaemia and atherosclerosis were induced experimentally in rabbits by cholesterol feeding. The effect of an indigenous drug, T. belerica, was evaluated in these hypercholesterolemic rabbits. T. belerica reduced the levels of lipids in hypercholesterolemic animals. There was also a significant decrease in liver lipids and heart lipids (P < 0.05) in the drug-treated animals.
