Figure 2 Micrograph of liver sections stained with Masson’s trichrome. Collagen can be visualized by the blue color in stains: (a) the control group showing normal degree of collagen fibers in the central vein and portal tract area; (b) thioacetamide (TAA) group showing extensive intralobular collagen deposition of both porto-portal and porto-central bridging fibrosis apparently as intense blue-stained collagen fibers content in the tissue, (c) P. granatum treated group showing nearly normal blue-stained collagen fibers content in the tissue, (d) TAA and silymarin liver shows minimal degree of collagen fibers, (e) TAA and P. granatum (100 mg/kg) group showing moderate collagen fibers surrounding the central vein, (f) TAA and P. granatum (200 mg/kg) group showing minimal collagen fibers surrounding the central vein (Masson’s trichrome, ×400).
