Abstract

The present study was carried out to investigate the antiperoxidative effect of Livex, a compound herbal formulation, against erythromycin estolate induced lipid peroxidation. The oral administration of Livex to rats along with erythromycin estolate caused a significant reversal in lipid peroxidation, enzymatic leakage and produced enhancement of cellular antioxidant defence, revealing that the antioxidative action of Livex is responsible for its protective activity. These observations were supplemented by histopathological examination of liver and kidney sections. The results of this study revealed that Livex could afford significant protection against erythromycin estolate induced lipid peroxidation.
