Abstract:Objectives: The current study was carried out to demonstrate potential role of Turcuron, a standardized turmeric extract containing 8% Bisacurone to protect against non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Methods: HepG2 cell lines exposed to oleic acid (OA) and high-fat diet-induced hepatic steatosis in mice were used as experimental models to explore the hepatoprotective effects of Turcuron. The cytotoxicity was quantitatively assessed by MTT assay. Lipid accumulation and intracellular triglyceride level w… Show more
