The Effects of Royal Jelly on Liver Damage Induced by Paracetamol in Mice
Experimental and Toxicologic Pathology, Article in Press

Abstract: The present study was undertaken to investigate the protective effect of royal jelly against paracetamol-induced liver damage…

It was shown that PAR significantly increased serum ALT, AST, ALP, liver MDA levels and significantly decreased liver GSH-Px activity, when compared to the control group (Group 1). On the other hand, meaningful changes were observed in the biochemical parameters of the group which was administered long-term RJ (Group 6)…

In conclusion, the administration of royal jelly as a hepatoprotective agent for 7 days against paracetamol-induced liver damage was determined to exhibit marked protective effect on liver tissue.
