  1. Data are presented as mean ± S.D. for 10 rats, a P ≤ 0.001, b P ≤ 0.01 compared with the normal group, * P ≤ 0.001 compared with the n-ZnO intoxicated-group, # P ≤ 0.05, ## P ≤ 0.01, ### P ≤ 0.01 compared with the combination group, respectively, using ANOVA followed by Bonferroni as a post-ANOVA test.
