  1. Relative weight (%) of the liver, lung, heart, right kidney, left kidney and spleen of female Swiss mice treated with 500, 1000 and 2000 mg kg-1 of the EAF fraction of A. sylvatica. Data are expressed as the mean ± standard deviation SISVAR 5.3[25]. (n=6) is the number of animals in each group. p*=5%.
