Photomicrographs of Oil red O-stained liver samples from representative animals in the NF (a), HF (b), and HFA (c) groups (× 400). (d) Percentage of hepatic steatosis grade (0–3 scale) within each group (n = 9–10). Data are expressed as percentage within group. Hepatic steatosis was graded as 0 (fatty hepatocytes occupying < 5%), 1 (fatty hepatocytes occupying 5–33%), 2 (fatty hepatocytes occupying 34–66%), or 3 (fatty hepatocytes occupying > 66%) Abbreviations: NF, normal-fat diet; HF, high-fat diet; HFA, high-fat diet with 0.1% Agrimonia pilosa aqueous extract
