From: Black rice (Oryza sativa L.) extract attenuates hepatic steatosis in C57BL/6 J mice fed a high-fat diet via fatty acid oxidation

Weight ND HF HF + BRE 1%
Initial body (g) 20.88 ± 0.47 NS 20.99 ± 0.36 20.13 ± 0.40
Final body (g) 32.65 ± 0.63 NS 32.24 ± 0.36 34.20 ± 0.65
Relative liver (% BW)2) 3.80 ± 0.17b 4.48 ± 0.23a 3.18 ± 0.10c
  1. 1) Values are expressed as mean ± standard error (n = 8 for each group). Within the same row, means with different letters (a, b, or c) are significantly different at p < 0.05 by Duncan's multiple range test. NS; not significant by ANOVA at p < 0.05
  2. 2) Relative liver weight is represented per 100 g of body weight (BW)
