Herbal Formula, Baogan Yihao (BGYH), Prevented Dimethylnitrosamine(DMN)-Induced Liver Injury in Rats.


PMID 28524372

Abstract

Preclinical Research Baogan Yihao (BGYH) is a traditional Chinese herbal medicine for the treatment of chronic liver diseases. In this study, the effects of BGYH on dimethylnitrosamine (DMN)-induced liver fibrosis were investigated using a rat model. BGYH alleviate liver damage, as indicated by decreased levels of AST, ALT, γ-GT, and AKP. BGYH also prevented collagen deposition and reduced pathological tissue injury in liver tissue. In fibrosis, high levels of α-SMA and TGF-β in liver tissue were markedly attenuated by BGYH. The inhibitory effect of BGYH on HSC-T6 proliferation demonstrated that BGYH exhibited significant hepatoprotective and antifibrogenic effects on DMN-induced liver injury. These findings suggest that BGYH may have therapeutic potential in the prevention and therapy of liver fibrosis. Drug Dev Res 78 : 155-163, 2017. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
