Table 6 Comparison between the different studied groups according to colloid area of thyroid follicles in pixels

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

Area × 103 Control group (n = 15) TBT treated group (n = 15) TBT + GTE group (n = 15)
Min. – Max. 13.5–160.9 7.1–24.3 6.06–160.7
Mean ± SD. 80.1 ± 50.2 15.4 ± 4.3 73 ± 49.8
Median 80.5 15.1 72.3
Significance between groups p1 = 0.012*, p2 = 0.8430, p3 = .023*.
  1. 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
