Materials: Twenty four albino  male rats weighting between 150-250 gwere separated randomly into four groups each consists of six animals maintained  in the animal house of College of pharmacy, Kerbala University in which the control group were given normal saline,Amoxiclav group: were given 30 mg/Kg/day of amoxiclav orally for 30 days, Amoxiclav and Co-enzyme Q10 group: each animal was given orally 30 mg/Kg of amoxiclav, and 100 mg/Kg Co-enzyme Q10 orally daily for 30 days, and Co-enzyme Q10 group: Each rat in this group was given 100 mg/Kg Co-enzyme Q10 orally daily for 30 days. At the end of the experiment the animals were anesthetized then scarified for the assessment of serum liver enzymes as well as liver  tissue samples were obtained for histopathological study.
Results: Liver function parameters manifested by ALT, AST, ALP, and TSB were significantly elevated in the animal group treated with amoxicalv together with hepatocellular necrosis and congestion.Concomitant treatment of animal group with the anti-oxidant coq10 together with amoxiclav was significantly reduce the liver enzymes as well as improvement of hepatocellular congestion and inflammation.
