To explore the protective effects of Traditional Uighur medicine Seeds of Nigella glandulifera Freyn (SNF) extracts against CCl4-induced acute hepatic injury in mice. Hepatic injury mice models induced by intraperitoneal injection of 0.1% CCl4 olive oil were established. Liver and spleen coefficient, Serum ALT and AST activities, SOD, GSH-Px activities and MDA content in hepatic homogenate were measured and the hepatic histological changes were observed by optical microscope. Serum activities of ALT (P<0.01) and AST (P<0.05) in Alcohol extraction group was decreased; Activity of hepatic homogenate SOD increased in Alcohol extraction group and Water extraction group significantly (P<0.05). Content of MDA was decreased in Alcohol extraction group (P<0.01). Water extracts of SNF have obvious protective effects on hepatic injury induced by CCl4 in mice.
