Table 1 Body weight and ovary weight in experimental groups

From: Potential protective effect of Tualang honey on BPA-induced ovarian toxicity in prepubertal rat

Group Body weight gain (g) % changes in body weight Ovary wet weight (g) Ovary relative weight (mg/g body weight)
CO 78.88 ± 14.61 48.15 ± 6.60 36.88 ± 1.88 0.24 ± 0.01b
PC 99.25 ± 9.90 56.52 ± 3.49 49.38 ± 1.13 0.29 ± 0.12a
TH 92.50 ± 4.62 56.12 ± 1.94 40.00 ± 1.64 0.24 ± 0.02b
THC 89.5 ± 10.64 52.39 ± 3.47 38.75 ± 0.82 0.23 ± 0.01bb
  1. The data were presented as mean ± S.E.M. Ovary relative weight with different superscripts are significantly different. aP < 0.05 versus negative control group (CO) and bP < 0.05, bbP < 0.01 versus positive control group (PC). There were no significant changes in body weight between all groups.
  2. CO = Negative control group administered with vehicle (corn oil).
  3. PC = Positive control group administered with BPA at 10 mg/kg body weight.
  4. TH = Tualang honey group administered with Tualang honey at 200 mg/kg body weight + BPA at 10 mg/kg body weight.
  5. THC = Tualang honey control group administered with Tualang honey at 200 mg/kg body weight.
