Effects of curcumin on testosterone generation in PA-treated MLTC-1 cells. MLTC-1 cells were treated with hCG for 24 h and the concentration of testosterone in the culture supernatants was then measured employing the ELISA assay (a). The rats were orally administered curcumin for 4 weeks, and serum level of testosterone was measured using the ELISA assay (b). The statistical analysis results are shown in the bar graphs. Data are presented as the mean ± SEM of three independent experiments. Bars with different letters are significantly different (p < 0.05)
