Effect of starvation and ginseng (methanol extract) administration on serum ceruloplasmin activities was studied in Sprague Dawley rat weighing 250 gm. The body weight decreased linearly during starvaiton of 4 days regardless of ginseng admimistraion. Serum ceruloplasmin activites revealed 30%-decrease on the 2nd day of starvation but did not decreased in ginseng administrated group. Serum ceruloplasmin activities were significantly decrease in starved condition and ginseng administraion can inhibit this decrease.
