Investigation of the anti-hepatotoxic activity of medicinal plants from Rwanda

Units : Pharmacognosy, Bioanalysis & Drug Discovery | ULB400

Description :

The hepatoprotective activity of plants traditionally used in Rwanda will be established using an in vitro test on liver slices
treated by paracetamol, a potent hepatotoxic agent. The most interesting plants will be investigated by a bioguided fractionation to
precise the structure of the active molecules. These compounds will then be evaluated in an animal model of viral hepatitis.
