Objective: Monoterpenes plays an essential role to fight against various diseases. Among the various monoterpenes an efficientd-Limonene plays a fundamental role to fight against hepatotoxicity caused by cancer chemotheraphy treatment. Hence the presence study is to evaluate hepatoprotective function of d-limonene against adraimycin induced hepatotoxicity.
Methods: Male albino Wistar rats were administrated with ADR (15mg/Kg body weight) in six equal injection, and the protection efficacy of d-limonene (100mg/Kg body weight) was examined with reference to tissue AST level and the pathological studies was examined by microscopic study.
Results: Rats treated with ADR results in elevated level of liver AST marker enzymes, whereasthe level of AST was controlled when administrated with d-Limonene. However Histopathological proof added more protective role of rats treated with d-limonene against hepatotoxicity.
Conclusion:ADR administration of 15mg/Kg body weight of rats increase the level of hepatotoxicity by increasing the marker enzyme activity and show severe morphological changes. The final outcome from our result suggests that d-limonene (100mg/Kg body weight) a vibrant monoterpene act as latent hepatoprotective negotiator by attenuating ADR induced hepatotoxicity
