Figure 3: Photomicrographs of liver tissue stained with Masson's trichrome. (a) Mice treated with normal chow diet showing normal liver cells. (b) Mice treated with high fat diet for a period of 8 weeks showing blue colour around the portal area. (c) Treatment of embelin (50 mg/kg/day, p.o.) from 5th to 8th week in high fat diet fed mice showing less colourization around the portal area. (d) Treatment of orlistat (10 mg/kg/day, p.o.) from 5th to 8th week in high fat diet fed mice showing more less colourization around the portal area as compare to embelin. Data are expressed as mean ± standard error of mean (n = 6 animals per group). Significance difference was determined by one-way analysis of variance followed by Tukey's multiple comparison test. ***P < 0.001 high fat diet versus normal control;###P < 0.001 embelin 50 mg versus high fat diet;†††P < 0.001 orlistat 10 mg versus high fat diet
