  1. Values are expressed as mean ± SEM of eight rats per group. Concentration is expressed as nmol/mg protein for MDA. Activity is expressed as unit/mg protein for CAT and SOD. Activity is expressed as m unit/mg protein for MPO. Significance was determined by one-way analysis of variance followed by Dennett's t test:* P < 0.05; ****P < 0.001 vs control. cP < 0.05; bP < 0.01; aP < 0.001 vs. CIS group.
