Table 3 Effect of treatment of rats with Trichilia catigua (TC) hydroalcoholic extract (25 and 250 mg/kg, p.o.) for 14 days on degree and index of ulceration induced by stress; on adrenal, thymus and spleen weights; and on ACTH and corticosterone plasmatic levels. The data express the mean ± SEM (n = 9–10)

From: Antioxidant, anticholinesterase and antifatigue effects of Trichilia catigua (catuaba)
