  1. Data are expressed as means ± SD (n = 12 rats per group). Control group: C; Fresh soybean-oil fed group: FSO; oxidized soybean oil-fed group: OSO; margarine-fed group: MG. Comparison between groups was made using Duncan's test. Different parameters values followed by different subscript letters (a, b and c) are significantly different between groups. (p < 0.05).
