Figure 1: The histological examination of livers. Histological examination from a control rat showing normal architecture (Figure 1A,×400); Acetate lead treated rats liver showing necrosis and hemorrhage (blue arrow), inflammatory (black arrow) and sinusoidal dilatation (green bolt) (Figure 1B, ×400). Powder rhizome of A. longa -treated rat liver showing normal appearance of hepatocytes (Figure 1D, ×400). Liver sections of the animals administered powder of heartwood A. malaccensis alone (Figure 1C,×400) or combined with rhizome of A. longa (Figure 1E,×400) of showed moderate degree of liver damage, hemorrhage and inflammatory cell, protection from hepatocyte degradation.
