This study evaluates the hepatoprotective effect of tecurium polium extract on liver toxicity which induced by carbon tetrachloride, in rats. Material and methods: This laboratory experimental research was carried out on36 male wistar rats. Tecurium Polium hydroalchoholic extract (TPHE) was given with dosages of 250 and 500 mg/kg as treatment groups, daily, for 14 days. At the same time treatment groups and tetra chloride carbon group received, carbon tetra chloride in olive oil solution, with dosage of 1ml/kg, intra peritoneal, since third day, daily for 10 days, and in control groups such as olive oil and negative control injected with dosage of o.5ml/kg,intra peritoneal olive oil and distilled water respectively, daily for 10 days.Extact control rats received only500 mg/kg extract . Statistical data was carried out by analysis of variance (ANOVA). Findings: According to biochemical tests, tecurium polium extract at dose 250 and 500 mg / kg reduced damages, that induced by carbon tetrachloride, However level of liver enzyme was more than references value which reported by negative control. Conclusion: return of marker enzymes such as ALT, AST and ALK and protein towards a near-normalcy in treatment groups maybe due to protective potential of TPHE.
