  1. SD = standard diet; F = high fat diet; F-OSC =Opuntia streptacantha cladode powder; F-OFI = Opuntia ficus-indica cladode powder. AST = aspartate aminotransferase. ALT = alanine aminotransferase. MCP-1 = monocyte chemoattractant protein 1. Results are mean of 10 animals ± SEM. No significant difference were observed.
