Table 2 Summary of the hepatic necroinflammation score in all experimental groups

From: Aloe vera attenuated liver injury in mice with acetaminophen-induced hepatitis

Group n Hepatic necroinflammation scores
   0 1 2 3
Control 8 8 0 0 0
APAP 8 0 0 2 6
Aloe vera-treated 8 0 4 3 1
  1. Data are presented as the number of mice exhibiting each score of hepatic necroinflammation (n = 8). Hepatic necroinflammation score in each section was graded according to the criteria described by Brunt et al.[39] from 0 to 3 as follow; Score 0: No hepatocyte injury/inflammation; Score 1: Sparse or mild focal zone 3 hepatocyte injury/ inflammation; Score 2: Noticeable zone 3 hepatocyte injury/inflammation; Score 3: Severe zone 3 hepatocyte injury/inflammation. APAP: N-acetyl-P-aminophenol.
