  1. Note: If the measured data were normally distributed, the mean ± standard deviation (SD) was used. For the animal experiments, the test data are expressed as the x ± SD, and single factor variance analysis was used to make pairwise comparison among multiple groups.The test level was α = 0.05 and a P-value < 0.05 was considered to be statistically significant.  a-c different lower case letters denote a significant difference at P < 0.05 between the different treatment groups.  d one rat in the MDSSG group and another one in the normal group have died and were not included into the measurements
