Figure 3: Effects of sesamol on mucosal lipid peroxidation (LPO) and mucus secretion in water immersion restraint- (WIR-) treated rats. Rats were divided into five groups of five: Group I, non-WIR (normal) group; Group II, WIR (control) group rats were subjected to WIR; and Groups III–V, sesamol-plus-WIR group rats were orally given sesamol (0.1, 0.3, and 1 mg/kg, resp.) 30 min before WIR. Mucosal malondialdehyde (MDA) and mucus hexosamine levels were determined after WIR.
