  1. Data are represented mean ± S.E.M (n = 6). Asterisks *, **, *** indicates p < 0.05, 0.001, 0.0001 vs. control; +, ++, +++ indicates p < 0.05, 0.001, 0.0001 vs. CP alone; #, ##, ### indicates p < 0.05, 0.001, 0.0001 vs. AHE + CP. Non-significant difference (p > 0.05) was recorded between control and AHE alone treated group in all parameters. (One way ANOVA followed by Tukey’s multiple comparison tests). Sily-Silymarin
