Morphology of epididymal lumen. Cross-sections of caput epididymis under high power field (100 ×) and under low power field (20 ×) (upper right hand border) in (A) normal, (B) STZ-induced diabetic rats (C) diabetic rats treated with 250 mg/kg/day C. borivilianum extract (D) diabetic rats treated with 500 mg/kg/day C. borivilianum extract (D) and (E) glibenclamide. Images showed that most tubules in STZ-induced diabetic rats were devoid of sperm with the tubules appearing smaller in size. Treatment with C. borivilianum root extract resulted in higher sperm density and size of the tubular lumens.
