  1. Values are mean ± STDEV; STDEV: standard deviation; G9, G12: groups treated with TME at rate of 500 mg/kg, 1500 mg/kg respectively; G10, G11: groups treated with SE at rate of 500 mg/kg, 1500 mg/kg respectively; TME and SE stands for thorough mixed extract and supernatant extract of ethanolic stem bark of C. swynnertonii; G13: group treated with PBSG at the rate of 0.1 ml/10 g. The *stand for significance with respect to negative control whereas *: P < 0.05, **: P < 0.01. The number of mice from which the data were obtained is shown in the brackets
