      Abstract:

      Liver regulates many important metabolic functions. Hepatic   injury is associated with distoration of these metabolic   functions.

      Thus liver disease remains one of the serious health problems.   Inspite of tremendous studies in modern medicine, there are not

      much drugs available for the treatment of liver disorders. In the   present study, paracetamol was used to induce the hepatic damage.

      Paracetamol, is a widely used analgesic and antipyretic drug.   Oxidative stress is reported to play an important role in the   pathogenesis

      of paracetamol – induced liver damage. The result confirm that   Citrus aurantifolia possess a potential hepatoprotective activity
