Fig. 4. Effects of ascorbic acid on hepatocyte ballooning and inflammatory focus in obese OVX female mice.
Mice (n=5/group) were fed an LFD, an HFD, an HFD-AA for 18 weeks. (A) Hematoxylin & eosin-stained liver sections. Dark arrows indicate ballooned hepatocytes (original magnification ×400). (B) Hepatocyte ballooning score. (C) Hematoxylin & eosin-stained liver sections. Dark arrows indicate inflammatory foci (original magnification ×200). (D) Lobular inflammation score. All values are expressed as mean ± SD. #P<0.05 compared with LFD. *P<0.05 compared with HFD.
