Table 3 Effect on intracellular Cd burden in liver, kidney, heart, brain and testes in absence (CdCl2) and presence of AEIA (AEIA + CdCl2) and AEEF (AEEF + CdCl2) in mice

From: The effects of two common edible herbs, Ipomoea aquatica and Enhydra fluctuans, on cadmium-induced pathophysiology: a focus on oxidative defence and anti-apoptotic mechanism

Values are expressed as mean ± SE, for six animals in each group. #Values differ significantly from normal control (p < 0.01). * Values differ significantly from CdCl2 control (p < 0.05). ** Values differ significantly from CdCl2 control (p < 0.01). Group I: Normal control; Group II: Toxic control; Group III: AEIA (100 mg/kg) + CdCl2 (4 mg/kg); Group IV: AEEF (100 mg/kg) + CdCl2 (4 mg/kg).
