4DescriptionAbstract Aegle marmelos leaves have been used for treatment of various liver aliments from time immemorial. Pre-treatment of A.marmelos leaves crude powder at its therapeutic dose (1 kg/kg body weight) was carried out to determine the efficacy on aflatoxin B1 (AFB1) (100 g/kg body weight) induced liver toxicity in rats. The crude powder of A.marmelos was found to be a potent inducer of the phase II detoxifying enzyme GST and promotes the antioxidant activity by controlling lipid peroxidation in the liver of AFB1 toxicated male albino (Wistar) rats.
