From: The effects of Cordyceps sinensis phytoestrogen on estrogen deficiency-induced osteoporosis in Ovariectomized rats

Groups Thymus mass (mg) Absolute weight of uterus (mg) Relative weight of uterus (mg)
Sham 270.11 ± 23.10** 340.15 ± 20.10** 125.11 ± 11.03**
OVX 540.1 ± 31.11 79.21 ± 3.21 29.7 ± 8.6
CSIF-100 288.3 ± 20.00** 309.10 ± 11.20** 115.6 ± 31.0*
CSIF-50 333.0 ± 20.22* 266.23 ± 11.11* 84.0 ± 9.2*
CSIF-20 530.0 ± 18.20 100.30 ± 22.22 51.6 ± 8.8
  1. Relative weight of uterus is the weight of uterus normalized with body weight (mg per 100 g of body weight). Values are mean ± SEM. n = 10. *P <0.05 vs. OVX control; **P <0.01 vs. OVX control.
