Table 3 Relative organ weight in rats with DMN-induced hepatic fibrosis

From: Can apricot kernels fatty acids delay the atrophied hepatocytes from progression to fibrosis in dimethylnitrosamine (DMN)-induced liver injury in rats?

Groups Liver index
I 3.1 ± 0.5d
II 2.6 ± 0.4a
III 2.7 ± 0.3b
IV 2.9 ± 0.4e
V 3.0 ± 0.1c
  1. Group I: fed on basal diet as a negative control group (NC). Group II: injected with DMN and fed on basal, used as a positive control group (PC). Group III: injected with DMN and fed on basal diet containing (ground apricot kernel)in amount of 0.5 mg/kg of body weigh/rat. Group IV: injected with DMN and fed on basal diet containing (ground apricot kernel) in amount of 1 mg/kg of body weigh/rat Group V: injected with DMN and fed on basal diet containing (ground apricot kernel) in amount of 1.5 mg/kg of body weigh/rat Values which don't share the same letter in each column are significantly different. Significance at P < 0.05, Liver index: Liver weight/body weight multiplied by 100.
