Figure 4

Effects of Abyssinone V-4’ methyl ether on microphotographs H&E 400× of vagina (a) and graphic representation of vagina epithelial height (b) after 28 days of treatment. Control = normal mice treated with distilled water; DMBA = negative control treated with water; DMBA + AVME 10 = animals treated with the Abyssinone V-4’ methyl ether at the dose of 10 mg/kg. All groups except the normal group (control) received an intragastric dose of DMBA at the dose of 100 mg/kg. Data are represented as mean ± SD (n = 5). < 0.001 as compared to negative control. St = stroma, Co = stratum corneum, Gr = stratum granulosum, Lu = lumen of vagina, and Ge = stratum germinativum.
