From: Evaluation of in vitro and in vivo Biological Activities of Cheilanthes albomarginata Clarke

Group Dose (mg/kg) Food intake (g/day) Initial body weight (g) Final body weight (g) Body weight gain(g) Feed efficiency ratio (FER)

  1. FER (Food Efficiency Ratio) = body weight gain (g/day)/food intake (g/day). Values were express as the mean ± SD. The effects of samples were compared by one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) using Duncan’s multiple range test. Values with different letters of the column are significantly different (p < 0.05) based on one-way ANOVA post-hoc Ducan Multiple Range tests.
