This study was carried out to evaluate the effect of fenugreek plant on CCL4 –induced liver injury by following the hematological and biochemical parameters. To achieve this purpose forty male albino rats were used and divided to four groups. The first group represented control group which received normal diet and intraperitoneal injection with oil (0.5ml/kg). The second group represented the CCL (1ml/kg) model. The third group received 200 mg/kg fenugreek leaves extract by gavage. The forth group received 500 mg/kg fenugreek seed extract by gavage. The fenugreek seed and leave extracts treated group showed significant differences in AST, ALT, ALP, direct bilirubin, MDA, GSH, liver SOD, WBC, LYM and PLT when compared to CCl4 treated rats. These results indicate that these plants can be used as a good source of antioxidant and hepatic protective activities as well as a good antibiotic agent against some pathogenic bacteria. The methanolic extract of fenugreek seeds with different concentrations in ml inhibited the growth of the pathogenic E. coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Bacillus subtilis bacteria more than the aqueous extract for the fenugreek leaves and seeds.
