NC: corn oil injection (s.c) + PBS (p.o.), BPH: testosterone (s.c) + PBS (p.o.), Finasteride: testosterone (s.c) + finasteride (10 mg/kg, p.o.), YJT-200 and −400: testosterone (s.c) + YJT (200 and 400 mg/kg, respectively, p.o.).

##P  < 0.01 when compared with the NC group.

**P  < 0.01 when compared with the BPH group.
