Table 1 Effects of cadmium (Cd) and/or Dendropanax morbifera stem extract (DMS) on Cd concentration (μg/g) in the blood and hippocampal and kidney tissues of rats

From: Dendropanax morbifera Léveille extract facilitates cadmium excretion and prevents oxidative damage in the hippocampus by increasing antioxidant levels in cadmium-exposed rats
