Effect of Albizia Lebbeck Benth. stem bark extract (ALEx) on histological profile of liver in normal, STZ-induced diabetic untreated and STZ-induced diabetic treated wistar rats (Original magnification 40×, DXIT 1200 , Nikon, Japan). (i) NLALx: Heamatoxylin and eosin (H/E) stained sections of liver of normal control rats showing normal portal triad along with normal hepatocytes with central vein (yellow arrows). (ii) STZL: Liver section of rats received streptozotocin depicting destructed portal trial, disarranged hepatocytes and central vein (yellow arrows).(iii) ALEx100: Section of liver supplemented with 100 mg/kg body wt. of ALEx portaying improvement in structure of portal triad (yellow arrows). (iv)ALEx200: Liver section of rats received 200 mg/kg body wt. of ALEx showing arranged hepatocytes (yellow arrows). (v) ALEx300: Section of liver or diabetic rats treated with 300 mg/kg body wt. of ALEx depicting arranged central vein (yellow arrows). (vi) ALEx400: Liver of diabetic rat showing normal portal traid, central vein and hepatocytes (yellow arrows). (vii) LGLB: Liver section of rat administered with Glibenclamide showing normal microvasculature along with normal hepatocytes (yellow arrows).
