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

TSH (μIU/ml) Control group (n = 15) TBT treated group (n = 15) TBT + GTE group (n = 15) F p
Min. – Max. 0.11–0.39 2.58–3.18 0.18–2.73 130.483* <0.001*
Mean ± SD. 0.28 ± 0.09 2.81 ± 0.20 1.65 ± 0.71
Median 0.31 2.77 1.76
Significance between groups p1 < 0.001*, p2 < 0.001*, p3 < 0.001*   
  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 + GTEgroups
  5. *: Statistically significant at p ≤ 0.05
