ABSTRACT
Objective :
This study was carried out to investigate the effects of oral administration of Hyeungbangjihwang-tang (HBJHT) on the liver cirrhosis of rats induced by Carbon tetrachloride for 10 weeks.

Method:
The histopathological changes were observed. The HBJHT extracts were daily dosed at 50, 100 and 200㎎/㎏ for 12 weeks.

Results:
Severe hepatocellular necrosis and ballooning, hyperplasia of connective tissue, subdued reduction of hepatic lobule, and hyperplasia of bile duct in portal triad were dramatically decreased in the HBJHT-treated group compared to that of the Carbon tetrachloride-treated control group in histopathological observation. The diameter of hepatic lobules was significantly enlarged in the HBJHT-treated group compared to that of the Carbon tetrachloride-treated control group, and the amounts of connective tissue, degenerative cells and bile ducts were significantly and dose-dependently decreased.

Conclusion:
It is concluded that HBJHT has a significant recovering effect on the liver of rats induced by carbon tetrachloride.
Key words: Hyeungbangjihwang-tang(HBJHT), liver cirrhosis, Carbon tetrachloride
