Figure 4: Effect of PECQ on mean maximum flexor load of femur. Mean maximum flexor load significantly decreased in diabetic control (DC) rats when compared to normal control (NC) rats. Treatment with two different doses of PECQ (DC + CQ1 and DC + CQ2) or with insulin (DC + INS) significantly increased the mean maximum flexor load in diabetic rats when compared to DC rats. when compared to NC group; , , and when compared to DC group.
