The aqueous extract was found to be more effective on the surfactant system of lung against ova albumin and aluminium hydroxide induced lung damage in albino wistar rats. The rats were divided into 3groups of four animals each, namely group I, II and III which served as control, toxic and post treatment groups respectively. Our results showed increased Lung Body-Weight Index (LBI) and decreased lung lipid content in the toxic group of animals. But the levels of lipid content and Lung Body-Weight Index were restored in post-treated group of animals, which might be due to the protective activity of «DQ»Pentapala-04«DQ».
