Abstract:
β-Sitosterol (of Passiflora incarnata L. seeds) and chitosan (of shrimp shell) have been isolated and characterized by several techniques such as FT-IR,1H-NMR,13C-NMR, CHN, GC-MS and HPTLC for β-Sitosterol and FT-IR and X-Ray for chitosan. This study was conducted to determine the effect of β-Sitosterol and chitosan on plasma lipid profile in hypercholesterolemic and cholecystectomy in male rabbits. Results show that β-Sitosterol significantly decrease total cholesterol (TC), low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL) and triglyceride (TG) levels with increase in high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL) compared with chitosan. The same effect in the second experiment (cholecystectomy in male rabbits).
