  1. Assessment of body and testicular weight in the experimental groups, Control, TAU-CL, AZA, TAU-CL/AZA. Data are expressed as the mean ± SEM, and data were analyzed using one-way ANOVA followed by the Bonferroni post hoc multiple comparison test (n = 10). Difference between groups were considered statistically significant at P ≤ 0.05. (a) Significant values versus the group control, (b) Significant values versus the AZA group
  2. TAU-CL rats treated with taurine, AZA rats given Azathioprine, TAU-CL/AZA Rats given azathioprine and treated with taurine-chloramine
