Influence of WZ and/or APAP on lipid metabolism. Triglyceride and free fatty acid levels in 24 h serum samples from control, WZ-treated, WZ/APAP-treated, and APAP-treated mice were measured by colorimetric methods. (a) Serum triglyceride level, (b) serum free fatty acid level (mean ± SD, in each group). Triglyceride and free fatty acid levels in control mice were arbitrarily set as 100%. *, **, ***, NS: not significant.
