131I-Rose bengal clearance test has been immensely used for the clinical assessment of functional hepatic abnormalities. It has been observed that external collimated scintillation probe employing 131I-Rose bengal is a rapid and less erroneous way of assessing polygonal cell function in liver. The present study demonstrates the protection of liver by Liv-52 from the deleterious effects of carbontetrachloride (CC14) by determining the biological half-life of 131I-Rose bengal in male albino rats. An increase in the biological half-life of the radio-iodinated dye was observed following CC14 intoxication which was reversed by Liv-52 treatment.
