Decrease of serum ferritin level . Serum ferritin levels in different treated mouse. Mice were randomly divided into six groups (blank, B; control, C; 50 mg/kg b.w. TCME, S50; 100 mg/kg b.w. TCME, S100; 200 mg/kg b.w. TCME, S200; desirox group, D) and treated as described in ‘experimental design’ section. Values are expressed as mean ± SD of six mice. *p ≤ 0.05, **p ≤ 0.01, ***p ≤ 0.001 compared with blank and ##
p ≤ 0.01, ###
p ≤ 0.001 compared with control.
