OBJECTIVE: To study the hepatoprotective effect of several constituents of Lonicera fulvotomentosa and L. macranthoide on CC1(4) and D-Galactosamine induced liver injury in mice and rats.

METHOD: Mice and rats were given s.c. several constituents of L. fulvotomentosa and L. macranthoide, sGPT, hepatic triglycerides(TG) and malondialdehyde (MDA) were determined.

RESULTS: All the compounds reduced the rise of sGPT and TG induced by CC1(4) and D-Galactosamine. Hepatic MDA formation caused by CC1(4) was also significantly decreased.

CONCLUSION: Several constituents of L. fulvotomentosa and L. macranthoide are effective in decreasing CC1(4) and D-Galactosamine-induced liver injuries, and this effect appears to be due to the decrease of lipid peroxidation of CC1(4).
