Alcoholic and chloroform extracts of E. alba, T. purpurea  and B. diffusa  were screened for antihepatotoxic activity. The extracts were given after the liver was damaged with CCl4. Liver function was assessed based on liver to boy weight ratio, pentobarbitone sleep time, serum levels of transaminase (SGPT, SGOT), alkaline phosphatase (SALP) and bilirubin. Alcoholic extract of E. alba  was found to have good antihepatotoxic activity.
