Table 4 The liver weight and hepatosomatic index (HSI) of experimental groups

From: Soybean glycinin improves HDL-C and suppresses the effects of rosuvastatin on hypercholesterolemic rats

  STD HC HC+11S HC+ROS HC+11S+ROS
Liver (g) 10.90 ± 0.45c 13.54 ± 0.36b 17.63 ± 0.28ª 17.07 ± 0.92ª 17.14 ± 0.78ª
HSI (wt %) 3.79 ± 0.12c 4.59 ± 0.14b 5.91 ± 0.12ª 5.56 ± 0.27ª 5.68 ± 0.22ª
  1. HSI = (liver weight/body weight × 100); STD = standard diet, AIN-93 Composition; HC = hypercholesterolemic diet: AIN-93 plus 1 g/100 g cholesterol and 0.5 g/100 g cholic acid; HC+11S = HC diet + glycinin (300 mg/kg/day); HC+ROS = HC diet + rosuvastatin (10 mg/kg/day); HC+11S+ROS = HC diet + glycinin (300 mg/kg/day) and rosuvastatin (10 mg/kg/day). Values represented as mean ± SEM. Different superscript letters in the same row indicate a significant difference (p < 0.05) between experimental groups.
