Zingerone (ZO) is an ingredient of ginger (Zingiber officinale) which has different pharmacological properties. The objective of this research was to evaluate the protective effect of ZO against Cisplatin (Cis) orγ-Irradiation (IR)-induced hepatotoxicity in rats. ZO was given orally for consecutive 14 days prior to the treatment with Cis or exposure to IR at 15th day. Animals were sacrificed at the 23rd day. Cis or IR induced a marked increase in MAPK signal transduction as evidenced by increased p38 MAPK,JNK and ErK1/2. CYP2E1 and NADPH oxidase were significantly up-regulated. Inflammatory markers (TLR4, iNOS, COX-2 and MPO) and liver enzymes (AST, ALT and ALP) activities were also increased. Administration of ZO significantly ameliorated the above mentioned parameters.
