In recent years, one of the leading diseases in the Mongolian population is digestive system diseases among which increased incidence of liver disease in the population is becoming a most challenging situation as it is one of the leading causes of mortality. As of 2013, within 5 leading causes of morbidity in a population of 10.000, digestive system disease stands 2nd while liver cirrhosis is ranked 3rd in the leading causes of mortality. Therefore, the Mongolian traditional drug Gurgum-7 was selected to determine its impact on liver damage caused by carbon tetrachloride compared with the standard group which used Liv-52. The study thus shows that Gurgum-7 prescription showed hepatoprotective effect.
Key words: Gurgum-7, CCI4, hepatoprotective effect.
