Methanolic extract of Tylophora asthmatica leaves were prepared and tested for its antilipidperoxidation effect against acetaminophen induced hepato toxicity in rats. Alteration in the levels of lipid peroxide, iron, ferritin, total cholesterol, total lipid and phospholipids were tested in both experiment and control group of rats. Acetaminophen [1gm/kg] has showed a significant increase [p<0.05] in experimental rats except the level of phospholipids, which showed a significant decrease [p<0.05] compared to control rats. Treatment with methanolic extract of Tylophora asthmatica leaves [200mg/kg] has brought back the altered levels of this parameter to the near normal levels in the dose dependent manner.
