Evaluation of Methanolic Extract of Clitoria ternatea Hepatoprotective & Nephroprotective Activity in Rats
Objective: The aim of the study was to investigate the nephroprotective & hepatoprotective activity of methanolic extract of Clitoria ternatea in Cisplatin & CCl4 induced in rats
Methods: Methanolic extract of aerial part of Clitoria ternatea plant was studied for its Nephroprotective & Hepatoprotective activity in animal experiment models. Nephrotoxicity was induced by Cystone 16 mg/kg b.w . Standard drug was taken Silymarin .Test drug were given methanolic extract Clitoria ternatea 500 mg/kg , 1000 mg/kg . Hepatoxicity was induced by CCl4 .Standard drug was taken cisplatin 100 mg/kg . Test drugs were given extract of Clitoria ternatea 500 mg/kg & 1000 mg/kg as per b.w
Results : In Hepatoprotective activity positive control group was provided with CCl4 and increased SGPT , SGOT , ALP level compare to negative control group whereas Test(2) group was provided with methanolic extract of Clitoria ternatea 1000 mg/kg decreased SGPT , SGOT , ALP level compare to standard group. In nephroprotective activity positive control group was provided with CCl4 increased Urea and creatinine level where as Test(2) group are provided with methanolic extract of Clitoria ternatea 1000 mg/kg decreased urea and creatinine level
Conclusion: On evaluating biochemical parameters it was found that methanolic extract of Clitoria ternatea 1000 mg/kg showed hepatoprotective and nephroprotective activity in rats.
