From: Immunohistochemical and molecular study on the protective effect of curcumin against hepatic toxicity induced by paracetamol in Wistar rats

  Control Curcumin Paracetamol Curcumin + Paracetamol
MDA (nmol/g tissue) 9.78 ± 1.9 10.7 ± 1.0 18.2 ± 0.5* 12.6 ± 0.4#
Catalase (U/g tissue) 33 ± 6.1 37 ± 1.1* 21 ± 0.4* 33.9 ± 2.6#
  1. Values are means ± standard error (SEM) 3 independent experiments per each treatment. Values are statistically significant at *p < 0.05 Vs. control and #p < 0.05 Vs. paracetamol group.
