Effects of the aqueous extract of P. pellucida on serum (a) and bone (b) calcium concentrations in rats. Each bar represents the mean ± SEM (n = 5). * p < 0.05, ** p < 0.01 significant difference compared to NC. # p < 0.05 significant difference compared to FC. NC = Normal control rats, FC = Fracture control rats. F100 mg/kg, F200 mg/kg and F400 mg/kg = Fractured rats treated with the aqueous extract of P. pellucida at doses of 100, 200 and 400 mg/kg respectively, N400 mg/kg = Normal rats treated with P. pellucida at the dose of 400 mg/kg
