  1. Data are means ± SD of eight rats in each group.
  2. Liver functions are expressed as Unit/L. Total protein is expressed as mg P/ml.
  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.
