LN = Photomicrograph of section of liver of normal control rat (150x), yellow arrows showing lobular pattern with a centrilobular vein and scorching irregular anastomosing plates of hepatocytes with intervening sinusoids. LQ = Photomicrograph of section of liver of normal control rat received 200 mg/kg p.o of Qurs Tabasheer (150x), yellow arrows showing normal lobular pattern and hepatocytes. LS = Photomicrograph of section of liver of STZ-diabetic rat (150 x) yellow arrow demonstrate accumulation of droplets with distorted morphology of hepatocytes, centrilobular vein and sinusoids. LG = Photomicrograph of section of liver of STZ-diabetic rat (150 x) administered with 1 mg/kg p.o of Glimepiride, yellow arrow portrayed no signs of normal hepatocytes and normal lobular pattern. LQ 50 = Photomicrograph of section of liver of STZ-diabetic rat (150 x) administered with 50 mg/kg p.o of Qurs Tabasheer, yellow arrow exhibits docile hepatocytes and slightly distorted cetrilobular vein. LQ 100 = Photomicrograph of section of liver of STZ-diabetic rat (150 x) administered with 100 mg/kg p.o of Qurs Tabasheer, yellow arrow revealed slightly normal hepatocytes and sinusoids. LQ 200 = Photomicrograph of section of liver of STZ-diabetic rat (150 x) administered with 200 mg/kg p.o of Qurs Tabasheer, yellow arrow divulged the marked improvement in the distorted cetrilobular vein and hapatocytes.
