Figure 3: Microscopic study of sagittal sections of the kidney (×400). Histological sections of kidney were stained with haematoxylin and eosin. (a) In Group 1 Control rats arrow shows proper capsular space, (b) In Group 2 pregnant female rats treated with black tea extract (50 mg black tea extract/kg body weight/day, p.o.) capsular space decreases significantly, (c and d) In Group 3 pregnant female rats treated with black tea extract (100 mg black tea extract/kg body weight/day, p.o.), arrow indicating degradation of glomerulus and no glomerulus in Bowman's capsule
