  1. *n denotes an average number of tumors per animal; values are expressed as mean ± S.D
  2. Statistical significance (p) was calculated by one-way ANOVA followed by Tukey’s multiple comparison tests
  3. The control group was compared with normal; standard and test groups were compared with control; P < 0.05 considered significant
