Effect of aqueous TA extract on TBARS formation in CCl4 induced hepatic and renal damages in mice. Aqueous extract of TAwas administered 7 days prior to CCl4 treatment (1 ml/kg body weight). Left panel shows effects of the extract on liver and right panel shows that on the kidney against CCl4 induced MDA contents. Cont: MDA content in normal mice, CCl4: MDA content in only CCl4 treated mice, TA+CCl4: MDA level in which extract was given at a dose 50 mg/kg body weight prior to CCl4 administration, VitE+CCl4: MDA level in which vitamin E was given at a dose of 200 mg/kg body weight prior to CCl4 administration. Each column represents mean ± SD, n = 6; (P* < 0.01, P** < 0.001).
