Effect of ZAL and ZA on biochemical parameters of rats after oral treatment. Effect of ZAL and ZA on biochemical parameters of rats after oral treatment for twenty eight days using 5 mg/kg and 500 mg/kg doses. (A) Liver enzymes. (B) Renal function tests. All data are expressed as means ± SD and were compared using one-way ANOVA (n = 5). Differences with p < 0.05 are considered statistically significant. From the table, AST in ZALH, ZAH and ZAL was notably elevated compared to VC, but the difference were not significant (p > 0.05). However, the differences in AST/ALT ratio of ZALH (#) and ZAH (#) were statistically significant compare to VC (#) group. Other parameters measured were found to have no statistical significant difference compared to the control group (p > 0.05). ALT (alanine aminotransferase), AST (aspartate aminotransferase), CK (creatine kinase), Creat (Creatinine), GGT (Gamma-glutamyltransferase), Na (sodium), K (potassium), Cl (chloride).
