Figure 4: Histological observation of liver, kidney and spleen tissues after sub-chronic treatment with the Artemisia herba-alba extract. (A) Liver sections of normal control rats (1); rats treated with 1 g/kg (2); rats treated with 2 g/kg (3); rats treated with 3 g/kg (4); rats treated with 4) rats treated with 1 g/kg (2); rats treated with 2 g/kg (3); rats treated with 3 g/kg (4); rats treated with 4 g/kg (5) and rats treated with 5 g/kg (6) of extract for 6 weeks (H and E × 40) (5) and rats treated with 5 g/kg (6) of extract for 6 weeks (H and E, ×40) showing normal architecture without lesions with some artifact between hepatocyte trabecular. (B) Spleen sections of normal control rats (1) rats treated with 1 g/kg (2); rats treated with 2 g/kg (3); rats treated with 3 g/kg (4); rats treated with 4 g/kg (5) and rats treated with 5 g/kg (6) of extract for 6 weeks (H and E, ×40) showing normal architecture compared to controls. (C) Kidney sections of normal control rats (1) rats treated with 1 g/kg (2); with 2 g/kg (3); with 3 g/kg (4); with 4 g/kg (5) and with 5 g/kg (6) of extract for 6 weeks (H and E, ×40). A normal architecture showing glomerulus with proximal and distal tubules well-preserved with some artifacts of retraction and with some vascular congestion noted for 3; 4; and 5 g/kg
