Synopsis: 
Acute ethyl alcohol intoxication and related acute alcoholic hepatitis pose serious problems to emergency departments. Reactive oxygen radicals play an important role in ethyl alcohol-induced hepatotoxicity. L-ornithine L-aspartate significantly reduced hepatic injury and decreased oxidative stress causing liver injury.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Ethyl alcohol is a substance that is widely used worldwide and known to exert toxic effects on liver. In this study, we aimed to examine the effect of L-ornithine L-aspartate (LOLA) on the toxicity of a single dose of ethyl alcohol in rats.
