Groups Alanine Transferase (U/L) Aspartate Transferase (U/L) Alkaline Phosphatase (U/L)

Normal control 30.36 ± 1.70 40.50 ± 0.30 41.01 ± 1.10
MEFP 300 mg/kg 31.31± 3.00 41.92 ± 1.90 41.22 ± 2.40
ASNT 2.9 mg/kg 32.21± 2.10 42.12± 1.20 43.32± 2.20
MEFP 300 mg/kg + ASNT 2.9 mg/kg 31.86 ± 1.20 41.25 ± 0.65 44.25 ± 1.95

Values are Mean ± SEM, n= 5, oral route, ASNT 2.9 mg/kg = treated with artesunate at dose of 2.9 mg/kg, MEFP 300 mg/kg = treated with methanol extract of Ficus platyphylla at a dose of 300 mg/kg, No significant difference after analysis with one way ANOVA.
