  1. C: control group; OE: treated group. Values are expressed as the mean ± s.e.m. of 6 animals per group. Statistical analysis of the differences: Two-way ANOVA (time (T), treatment (TR) and interaction (TxTR)) was performed.
  2. Post-hoc Bonferroni test (comparison between C and OE): * = P < 0.01
