Abstract

The present study was aimed to find out the protective effect of curcumin on hepatotoxicity resulting by commonly used antimalarial drug chloroquine (CQ). Albino rats were administered with CQ 200mg/Kg body wt. We observed statistically significant hepatotoxicity following CQ administration. We further observed a significant alterations in biochemical parameters such as total protein, aspartate transferase, alanine transaminase, superoxide dismutase and catalase on tested curcumin (300mg/Kg b.wt) against CQ-induced hepatotoxicity and also found encouraging results with histopathological examination of liver section when compared with normal group rats. It is evidenced that curcumin exerts significant protection against CQ induced toxicity due to its antioxidant activity. In conclusion, thus our study strongly suggest that curcumin along with CQ should be recommended for treating malaria, so as to avoid the toxic influences of the above mentioned drug.
