The present study evaluates anti-hyperlipidaemic and anti-atherogenic activities in Triton WR-1339 and high cholesterol diet induced hyperlipidemia in rat models. Chloroform, ethyl acetate and ethanol extracts of whole plant of Blepharis maderaspatensis were evaluated for their anti-hyperlipidaemic and anti-atherogenic activities using Triton WR-1339 induced hyperlipidaemic rats (acute study) and high cholesterol diet induced (chronic study) experimental models. Hyperlipideamia was developed by intraperitonial injection of Triton WR-1339 (200 mg/kg body weight) in acute study and feeding with cholesterol rich diet in chronic study. The animals were divided into various groups and intragastric administration of various extracts of B. maderaspatensis (100 mg/kg) body weight was given in both models. After the completion of the treatment, they were evaluated for serum total cholesterol, triglycerides, high density lipoprotein (HDL), low density lipoprotein (LDL), very low density lipoprotein (VLDL), atherogenic index (AI), coronary risk index (CRI) and were compared with the rats treated with simvastatin (20 mg/kg) of the body weight. Pre-treatment of ethanol extracts of B. maderaspatensis significantly reduced the serum total cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL, VLDL, AI and CRI as comparable with simvastatin.
