Abstract: Background: Eugenol an essential oil found in clove was previously shown to have some anti-inflammatory properties. It also was shown to be linked to hepatoprotective effect. In this regard, we aimed to reveal the effect of eugenol on cholestatic liver disease.
Method: Cholestatic liver disease model was established in 20 rats via bile duct ligation. Eugenol was administered and cytokine levels and liver histology after sacrifice were evaluated.
Results: Biliary ductular proliferation and neutropil infiltration were lower in eugenol-administered rats.
Conclusion: Eugenol has a promising effect on liver histology in cholestatic liver disease (Tab. 1, Fig. 2, Ref. 16).

Keywords: biliary ductular proliferation, cholestatic liver disease, bile duct ligation, liver histology, acute cholestasis.
