From: Modulation of Balance Between Apoptosis and Proliferation by Lipid Peroxidation (LPO) During Rat Liver Regeneration

3 5
Sh-Control 1.0 ± 0.1 1.0 ± 0.1
PH-Control 3.0 ± 0.5* 2.5 ± 0.5*
PH-E1 1.0 ± 0.1# 1.0 ± 0.1#
PH-C1 1.0 ± 0.1# 1.0 ± 0.1#
  1. AI is expressed as percentage of apoptotic cells scored per 6000 hepatocytes per slide at magnification of 400X. All values are expressed as mean ± SE of six rats per group. Sh-vitamin treated groups showed no statistically significant changes respect to Sh-Control group at any time tested.
  2. *p < 0.05 versus Sh-Control.
  3. #p < 0.05 versus PH-Control.
