  1. Data are means ± SD of eight rats in each group.
  2. Data are expressed as μg/mg protein for GSH and μmol/mg protein for MDA and total SOD.
  3. Unshared letters between groups are the significance values at p < 0.0001.
  4. Statistical analysis is carried out using one way analysis of variance (ANOVA), CoStat Computer Program.
