Figure 2

Histological quantification of fibrosis (expressed as per cent of total areas) in control and ZDF rats. ZDF rats were untreated (ZDF) or received fenofibrate (ZDF+F) or metformin (ZDF+M) after the first metabolic investigation at the age of 7 weeks. These parameters were measured only in rats sacrificed for tissue sampling (n = 5 for each group), therefore they were measured at 7 weeks only in a group of control and ZDF rats. * p < 0.05 vs the corresponding control group; € p < 0.05 vs the 7 week value of the group; $ p < 0.05 vs the corresponding untreated ZDF group.
