Male Wistar rats injected i.p. with 30 mg Fe’+ikg body weight show hepatic damage as measured by an increase in lipid peroxides which correlated with elevated serum enzymes, alanine aminotransferase (ALAT), aspartate amino- transferase (ASAT) and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH). Oral administration of spice principles, curcumin from turmeric (30 mgkg body weight) or eugenol from cloves (100 mgkg body weight), for 10 days lowered the liver and serum lipid peroxide levels, serum ALAT, ASAT and LDH, enhanced by i.p. injection of iron. This study indicates that curcumin or eugenol reduces the iron-induced hepatic damage by lowering lipid peroxidation.
