Scavenging activity of leaf extract of C. colocynthis and Ascorbic acid on DPPH.
Effect of hydroalcoholic leaf extract of Citrullus colocynthis on level of oxidative stress in different markers in heart tissues. A, LDH; B, CK-MB; C, troponin-1; D, AST; E, ALT; F, ALP; G, CRP. ns (p > 0.05) did not show any significant reduction. *(p<0.05) showed significant reduction, **(p<0.001) showed highly significant reduction.
