Wojcicki J, Samochowiec L, Hinek A

T60 corresponds to microbiologically fermented pollen extract. T60 contains mainly water soluble, while GBX mainly fat soluble substances. The aim of the present work was to examine the effect of T60 on the d-galactosamine-induced liver damage in rat. It has been shown, that galactosamine administration to rat resembles viral hepatitis both biochemically and histologically. Our studies proved, that T60 given orally or intraperitoneally inhibited or counteracted the elevation of amino transferases activity and the inflammatory process, necrosis and steatosis of the liver cells. The protective effect of GBX on the liver parenchyma was only slightly expressed. It is concluded, that application of pollen extracts in patients with liver diseases should be considered.
