AbstractThis study is aimed to investigate the effect of ethanolic extract of Eruca Sativa leafs in liver and kidney¬¬¬ enzymes of mice. Thirty male albino mice average weight 25gm were divided into 5 groups included group1 (normal diet), group2 (injected with carbontetrachloride CCl4), group3 (injected with CCl4 + 0.5mg/ml Eruca sativa extract), group4 (injected with CCl4 + 1mg/ml Eruca sativa extract), and group5 (injected with CCl4 + 2mg/ml Eruca sativa extract). Serum liver and kidney functions tests were estimated. The results showed that Eruca Sativa extracts at concentration 2mg/ml improved liver and kidney functions. We concluded that, Eruca sativa extracts may exert their prophylactic and treatment role against oxidative stress produced by CCl4 by increasing/maintaining the levels of antioxidant molecules and antioxidant enzymes.
