The objective of this study is to explore the preventive effects of ethyl acetate fraction fromleaf extract (EACA), associated with its phytochemical content, against the toxic impacts of acute exposure to carbon tetrachloride (CCl) in the liver of adult rats. HPLC analysis of ethyl acetate fraction from extractrevealed eight compounds. Administration of a single dose of CClcaused hepatoxicity as monitored by an increase in lipid peroxidation (thiobarbituric acid reactive substances) and in protein carbonyl level but a decrease in antioxidant markers in the liver tissue. The pre-treatment with EACA; significantly prevented the increased plasma levels of hepatic markers and lipid levels induced by CClin rats. Furthermore, this fraction ameliorated biochemical and histological parameters as compared to CCl-treated group. Our results suggest thatcontains promising substances to counteract the CClintoxication and can be efficient in the prevention of hepatotoxicity complications.
