Breadfruit leaves (Artocarpus altilis (Park.) Fsb.) are used as traditional medicine in
treatment of liver diseases. This study aimed to figure out the hepatoprotective effect
of breadfruit leaves infusion in carbon tetrachloride-induced liver damage in male
albino rats. The study used 25 male albino rats of Sprague-Dawley strain, which were
divided randomly into five groups. Group I (normal control group) and group II
(carbon tetrachloride-induced control group) only received 0,5% carboxymethylcellulose
(CMC) solution. Group III-V received different dose of breadfruit leaves infusion
for seven days respectively, which were 13,5 g/kgBW (dose 1), 27 g/kg BW (dose
2) and 54 g/kg BW (dose 3). On 7th day, all groups, excepted the normal group, were
induced by 0,4 ml/kgBW dose of carbon tetrachloride perorally two hours after the last
breadfruit leaves infusion given. Parameters of liver damage were estimated by measuring
the activity of plasma alanine aminotransferase (ALT), the concentration of
lipid peroxide in liver, and the concentration of lipid peroxide in plasma. The results
of ANOVA (p<0,05) demonstrated that breadfruit leaves infusion at a dose of 54 g/
kgBW (dose 3) consumed for seven days respectively before 0,4 ml/kgBW dose of
carbon tetrachloride-induced had hepatoprotective effect estimated by the activity of
plasma ALT and the concentration of lipid peroxide in liver.

Keywords : ALT, breadfruit leaves, lipid peroxide, liver.
