Table 3 Comparison of hepatic-antioxidant enzyme and malondialdehyde levels in rabbits from the control and different oils (STHMVO, L-RHMVO & H-RHMVO) fed groups at 16 weeks (n = 12)

From: Association of long-term consumption of repeatedly heated mix vegetable oils in different doses and hepatic toxicity through fat accumulation
