Aim To investigate the effects of indole-selenium on mice's immunological liver injury.Methods The model of immunological liver injury in mice was prepared. The activities of alanine aminotransferase(ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase(AST) were assayed by spectrophotometry; the levels of nitric oxide(NO) in serum were assayed by Griess method; tumour necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) activity was determined by ridio immunoassay method and the level of interleukin-1(IL-1) was assayed by MTT dye reduction. Results Indole-selenium (5, 10, 20 mg·kg~(-1)) significantly decreased serum transaminase (ALT, AST) levels,attenuated the area and extent of necrosis and reduced the infiltration of inflammatory cells. Furthermore, indole-selenium significantly lowered the increased TNF-α and NO levels in serum and inhibited the production of TNF-α and IL-1 by peritoneal macrophages. Conclusion Indole-selenium possesses amelioration effect on pathology of immunological liver injury in mice,which was related directly with inhibiting the production of TNF-α and NO levels in serum, decreasing the production of TNF-α and IL-1 by peritoneal macrophages.
