Data are expressed as the mean ± SD for normal distribution. Nonnormally distributed values are presented as median (interquartile range). values represent the treatment group versus the control group. represent versus baseline (week 0), paired -test for normal distribution or Wilcoxon matched-pairs signed-rank test for nonnormal distribution. SBP, systolic blood pressure; DBP, diastolic blood pressure; AST, aspartate transaminase. ALT, alanine transaminase; BUN, blood urea nitrogen; Scr, serum creatinine; HDL, high density lipoprotein cholesterol; LDL, low density lipoprotein cholesterol; TG, triglycerides; TC, total cholesterol.
