The objective of this research was to see whether the ethanolic extract of Artabotrys hexapetalus leaves had antioxidant and hepatoprotective properties against paracetamol (PCT), ethanol (ETN), and isoniazid and rifampicin (IR)-induced hepatotoxicity in Albino Wister rats. The materials were dried in the shade, pulverised, and extracted using ethanol. Phytochemical experiments were carried out as a first step. The ethanol extract's hepatoprotective activity was evaluated in Albino Wister rats. PCT (3 g/kg), ETN (5 g/kg), and IR (100 mg/kg) reduced the levels of SGOT, SGPT, ALP, and bilirubin, which are all biochemical indicators of liver injury. Both hepatotoxin-treated and untreated group of animals determined for their antioxidant levels. Aspartate aminotransferase (SGOT), alanine transaminase (SGPT), alkaline phosphatase (ALP), bilirubin, an antioxidant function of DPPH (1,1-diphenyl 2-picryl hydroxyl), hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), lipid peroxidation methods, hydroxyl radicals, and nitric oxide were among the biochemical and histopathological tests performed. The altered levels of biochemical markers were restored to near-normal levels in a dose-dependent fashion after treatment with A. hexapetalus ethanolic leaf extract (100 mg/kg, 200 mg/kg, and 400 mg/kg body weight). The findings of the current research indicated that the ethanol leaf extract of A. hexapetalus had potent antioxidant and hepatoprotective properties.
