- 19 Downloads
Treated the experimental acute liver injury rat induced by D-galactosamine with magnesium lithosperamate-B could significantly lower the serum activity of alanine transaminase and aspartate aminotransferase, relieve the necrosis of hepatocytes and elevate the levels of products of arachidonic acid (6-ke-to-prostaglandin 1α, prostaglandin D2 and the total prostaglandin) in liver. These results suggested that magnesium lithosperamate B was one of the main components ofSalvia miltiorrzae in treating liver injury, the action on elevating the total prostaglandin in liver might be its mechanism.
