Table 1 Relative liver weight and serum ALT and Cu/Zn SOD activities in the livers of CCl4-intoxicated mice treated with Micrometria croatica ethanolic extract (MC) and silymarin (S)

From: Hepatoprotective effects of Micromeria croatica ethanolic extract against CCl4–induced liver injury in mice

  Relative liver weight ALT (U/L) Cu/Zn SOD (U/mg protein)
Control 4.59 ± 0.62a 26.5 ± 1.8a 9.36 ± 0.63a
MC 400 mg/kg 4.75 ± 0.44a 29.4 ± 2.1a 9.12 ± 0.94a
CCl4 7.76 ± 0.87b 1447 ± 195b 5.22 ± 0.86b
CCl4 + MC 50 mg/kg 7.72 ± 0.46b 1406 ± 165b 5.71 ± 0.74b
CCl4 + MC 200 mg/kg 6.88 ± 0.32b 789 ± 107b 6.94 ± 0.37b
CCl4 + MC 400 mg/kg 5.75 ± 0.83a 293 ± 79c 8.17 ± 0.69a
CCl4 + S 400 mg/kg 5.74 ± 0.71a 256 ± 96c 8.29 ± 0.83a
  1. Relative liver weight is expressed as g of liver weight/100 g of body weight
  2. ALT alanine aminotransferase; Cu/Zn SOD superoxide dismutase
  3. Each value represents the mean ± SD for 5 mice. Means sharing the same letter within row are not significantly different from each other (P < 0.05)
