Table 1. Liver function tests after CEHPOBA selection.

Liver function parameters 1 month after the end of CEHPOBA or saline selection. Data are means ± SD (n = 3 animals per group). P values were determined by Student’s two-tailed t test assuming equal variance. ALT, alanine aminotransferase; AST, aspartate aminotransferase.
