    Amit Upadhyay*, Suman Jain, Neetu Bhalla, Kanika Arora, Subodh Dubey

    The aim of present study was evaluation of in-vivo hepatoprotective activity of monocot grass Kyllinga triceps rottb. In the present study hepatotoxicity was induced by using CCl4, silymarin was taken as standard drug. Ethanolic and petroleum ether extracts were prepared for study. It was observed that among all the extracts of kyllinga triceps rottb, the petroleum ether extract significantly decreased (p>0.01) the SGOT, SGPT, ACP, ALP and DB levels. Petroleum ether extract (200 mg/kg) showed highest hepatoprotective activity almost comparable to the silymarin (25 mg/kg) treated group. It can be concluded that the plant kyllinga triceps has shown significant hepatoprotective activity when compared to silymarin.
