CARDIOPROTECTIVE EFFECT OF CASSIA AURICULATA LINN., PETAL EXTRACT ON ISOPROTERENOL INDUCED MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION IN MALE ALBINO RATSAbstract
Protective effect of Cassia auriculata Linn., floral extract was examined against Isoproterenol induced Myocardial infarction in male albino rats. The oral administration of aqueous extract of Cassia auriculata, afforded protection against Isoproterenol induced alterations in Cholesterol, LDL, HDL, TG, Protein, AST, ALT, LDH, Catalase and GPx. The protective effect was further supported by the histological observations. The results clearly demonstrate that Cassia auriculata flowers have potent cardioprotective effect.
