Effect of Ocimum sanctum leaf extract was studied on paracetamol induced hepatic damage in rats. O.sanctum was found to protect the rats from hepatotoxic action of paracetamol as evidenced by significant reduction in the elevated serum enzyme levels. Histopathological studies showed marked reduction in fatty degeneration in animals receiving O.sanctum along with paracetamol as compared to the control group. It is stipulated that the extract treated group was partially protected from hepatic cell damage caused by«SQ» paracetamol.
