ABSTRAKT

The effect of total triterpenoids extract isolated from Ganoderma lucidum (Curt.: Fr.) P. Karst. (GT) on two different experimental liver injury models induced by carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) and D-galactosamine (D-Gal) was studied in mice. The liver triglycerides (TG), superoxide dismutase (SOD), glutathione (GSH), malondialdehyde (MDA), and serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT) were measured. The histopathological changes in the liver were assayed in mice. The results were as follows: GT (80 mg/kg) and GT2 (10, 20, 40 mg/ kg), as malotilate, were shown to significantly inhibit the increase of serum ALT and liver TG levels in the models. GT could antagonize the decrease of SOD activity and liver GSH content and inhibit the increase of the liver MDA content in the liver-injury mice induced by CCl4 or D-Gal. Also, it could improve the histopathological changes of liver injury. The results demonstrate that total triterpenoids isolated from G. lucidum have powerful protective effects against liver damage induced by CCl4 or D-Gal. Their hepato-protective effects were perhaps related to the ability to promote the activity of scavenging enzymes for hepatic free radicals in mice, and thus to raise the ability of antioxidation in mice.
