  1. Each value represents mean ± SEM in each group. Values not sharing a common superscript (a-e) differ significantly with each other (p < 0.05, Duncan’s multiple range test (DMRT)). Group 1 - Control, Groups 2-5 (A. nilotica (L.) leaf extract) - 250, 500, 1000 and 2000 mg/kg body weight, Groups 6-8 (ethyl gallate) - 5, 10 and 20 mg/kg body weight.
