CCM; control + milk group, Ch; cholesterol group, ChM; cholesterol + milk group. Values are presented as the mean ± SD. Significant differences between all groups were identified by ANOVA test presented by F value. When significant (p value < 0.05), a post hoc LSD test was performed to compare the groups. † p < 0.05 versus control, ‡ p < 0.05 versus CCM, § p < 0.05 versus Ch, p < 0.05 versus ChM.
