a Group A is given olive oil and water, Group B is given CCl4 and water, Group C is given CCl4 and 0.02 g/kg of OGE, Group D is given CCl4 and 0.04 g/kg of OGE, and Group E is given CCl4 and 0.2/kg g of silymarin. The individual severity rates in rats were expressed as mean ± SE. LV: left ventricle. *Significant differences from Group A, P < 0.05. #Significant differences from Group B, P < 0.05.
