Table 2 Changes of SOD activity of chronic aluminum overload rat hippocampus (mean ± SD, n = 4)

From: Hippocampal neuronal metal ion imbalance related oxidative stress in a rat model of chronic aluminum exposure and neuroprotection of meloxicam

Group SOD (U · mg−1)
Control group 10.84 ± 1.75
meloxicam 3 mg · kg−1 group 11.03 ± 1.54
meloxicam 1 mg · kg−1 group 10.22 ± 1.37
Model group 8.09 ± 0.72*
Al + meloxicam 3 mg · kg−1 group 14.99 ± 1.40#b
Al + meloxicam 1 mg · kg−1 group 9.81 ± 0.97#
  1. *P < 0.05, vs. control group; #P <0.05, vs. model group; bP < 0.01, vs. Al + meloxicam 1 mg · kg−1 group.
  2. SOD: superoxide dismutase.
  3. U · mg−1: Unit per mg of protein.
