Table 1 Diet administration schedule for each study group (DW – distilled water with no CCT suspension; CCT – standardized suspension containing 4% cholesterol, 1% cholic acid, and 0.5% 2-thiouracil; n-3 PUFA – oral gavage of a suspension containing fish oil from capsules, 50 mg/kg/day; the dose was reduced to 25 mg/kg/day in the CA2 group on days 29–42)

From: Improvement in serum lipids and liver morphology after supplementation of the diet with fish oil is more evident under regular feeding conditions than under high-fat or mixed diets in rats
