Table 4 Effects of EFPA (10 mg/kg) and EFPA (10 mg/kg) + indomethacin (5 mg/kg, 1 h pretreatment) administered i.p. on plasma levels of creatinine and urea

From: The acute diuretic effect of an ethanolic fraction of Phyllanthus amarus (Euphorbiaceae) in rats involves prostaglandins

Groups Control EFPA (10 mg/kg) EFPA (10 mg/kg) + Indomethacin (5 mg/kg)
Creatinine (μmol/L) 94.28 ± 7.80 88.40 ± 4.56 110.47 ± 6.75#
Urea (mmol/L) 4.08 ± 0.38 3.29 ± 0.43 5.83 ± 0.58*, #
