Table 1 Number of Sertoli cells (SC) and frequency of dislocated Sertoli cell nuclei (DSN) in the testes of rats from Control (C) and Cimetidine (Cm) groups

From: Morphological evidences indicate that the interference of cimetidine on the peritubular components is responsible for detachment and apoptosis of Sertoli cells
