1. The present study was designed to evaluate the role of Liv-52 in carbon tetrachloride induced liver toxicity. 2. Three groups of 10 rats each were subjected to experimental study. Animals in Group 2 and 3 were injected S.C. with 0.2 ml of Ccl4 mixed in 0.2 ml of groundnut oil twice a week for 6 weeks. Animals in Group 3 also received 0.5 ml of Liv-52 syrup everyday in addition to Ccl4 treatment. Group I animals were injected only with 0.2 ml of groundnut oil, twice a week. 3. Serum acid and alkaline phosphatase, AST and ALT activities were significantly increased in CCI4 treated rats. Pretreatment with Liv-52 prevented the rise in the enzyme levels.
