Figure 5. Effect of ZLE on histology changes in apoE-/- mice. Higstoppathology of liver, kidney and lung from apoE-/- mice (HE staining: original magnification ×20). The mice were treated with 0.5% CMC (A), 250 mg/kg ZLE (B), 100 mg/kg fenofibrate (C) for 8 weeks. The main organs were collected and processed for histological analysis. The sections were stained with hematoxylin-eosin. No detectable injures were examined, suggesting that the ZLE had no distinct toxicity on liver, kidney and lung and well tolerated
