From: The effect of Tributyltin on thyroid follicular cells of adult male albino rats and the possible protective role of green tea: a toxicological, histological and biochemical study

  1. F: F test (ANOVA), Significance between groups was done using Post Hoc Test (LSD)
  2. p1: p value for comparing between Control and TBT treated groups
  3. p2: p value for comparing between Control and TBT + GTE groups
  4. p3: p value for comparing between TBT treated and TBT + GTE groups
  5. *: Statistically significant at p ≤ 0.05
