Effect of PJ and PS on histological changes in islets of Langerhans of experimental rats. SD rats were orally administered with PJ and PS at the doses mentioned earlier for 21 days. The collected pancreases from the overnight fasting rats were analyzed for the measurement Average number of islets of Langerhans (per square centimeter) a → shows the islets of Langerhans. H & E (×4), and Average size of islets of Langerhans (μm) b - - - shows the area of islets of Langerhans. H & E (×40). The values are means ± S.E.M. of three samples/experiments for 8 rats in each group. *p˂0.05, **p˂0.01 were considered significant compared to DC; # p˂0.05, ## p˂0.01 considered as significant as compared with the normal control. ns: non-significant changes between diabetic treated groups vs. DC group after 21 days treatment
