Groups MDA level (μmol/L) Precent of changing
Before treatment After treatment
Doxorubicin 15 mg./kg 3.27 ± 0.52 14.8 ± 0.45 †† 352%
Doxo. + Vit E 100 mg./kg 2.98 ± 0.29 7.87 ± 0.99 †† ** 164%
Doxo. + Telmisartan1mg/kg. 3.17 ± 0.29 11.1 ± 0.37 †† ** 249.2%

The values are expressed as mean ± SEM. † P < 0.05, †† P < 0.01 (means of each group after treatment versus their means before treatment) by using paired t test.

* P < 0.05, ** P < 0.01 (means of Vitamin E, and Telmisartan groups after treatment versus means of Doxorubicin group after treatment) by using LSD test.
