    Author(s): Yasir Mehmood and Muhammad Imran AshrafYasir Mehmood and Muhammad Imran Ashraf

    Objective: This study was designed to estimate the efficacy of Ruta chalepensis L in falling the cholesterol levels in hypercholesterolemic rabbits. Materials and methods: Hypercholesteremia was induced in normal rabbits by adding 0.75 g cholesterol and 1.5 g bile salt in normal diet that were used for the experiments. Dried leaves and fruits powder of Ruta chalepensis L was administered as feed supplement at 5 g and 10 g dose levels to the hypercholesterolemic rabbits. Plasma and liver lipid profiles, fecal bile acid, hepatic HMG-CoA reductase, malondialdehyde, cholesterol and neutral sterols were estimated by using standard methods. Results: Feed supplementation with 5 g and 10 g of Ruta chalepensis L resulted in a significant decline in hepatic and plasma lipid profiles. The feed supplementation increased the HMG-CoA reductase activity and bile acid production in al.. Read More»
