Effects of PE on apoptosis in DENA-initiated hepatocarcinogenesis in rats. (A) Representative immunohistochemical localization of apoptotic cells (magnification: 100x). Arrows indicate immunohistochemical staining of apoptotic cells. Several groups are (a) normal control; (b) DENA control; (c) PE 1 g/kg plus DENA; and (d) PE 10 g/kg plus DENA. (B) Quantification of immunopositive cells based on 1,000 hepatocytes per animal and 4 animals per group. Each bar represents the mean ± SEM ( ).   as compared with DENA-control group.
