Protective effect of Brassica oleracea var. botrytis L. against theophylline-induced hepatocellular abnormalities in rats
Indole and its derivatives, such as indole acetic acid are active constituents of cauliflower (Brassica oleracea var. botrytis L.) with are known to function as plant growth hormones. Drug metabolism mainly occurs in the liver, so that the possibility of damage to this organ is considerable. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of cauliflower extract on alanine transaminase (ALT) levels and on the hepatocyte morphology induced by theophylline in Wistar rats.
