Figure 3: Cucumis melo ssp. agrestis var. agrestis fractions ameliorates high fat diet induced adipose tissue weight gain without any toxicity. hamsters were fed either a chow or high fat diet for 7 days in the presence of fenofibrate (100 mg/kg) or Cucumis melo ssp. agrestis var. agrestis fractions (50 mg/kg) (n = 8). (a) Images of hamster showing Cucumis melo ssp. agrestis var. agrestis fruit extract and Cucumis melo ssp. agrestis var. agrestis hexane fraction mediated decrease in epididymal white adipose tissue (b) epididymal white adipose tissue weight (c) histological analysis of the epididymal white adipose tissue and Liver after staining with hematoxylin and eosin. Cucumis melo ssp. agrestis var. agrestis does not cause any toxicity, in vivo in Syrian golden hamster (d) serum alanine aminotransferase (e) serum aspartate aminotransferase (f ) serum creatinine
