The effect of p-coumaric acid and ellagic acid on the liver and lungs in a rat model of sepsis

used for the rats, and selection of the number of rats to provide adequate statistical power to observe differences. Because of ethical constraints to limit the number of rats used, we used only 6 rats per group, which was considered to be suitable for these experiments. Another limitation of the present study was the lack of an appropriate positive control substance—for example, vitamin C or E, which are well known to have antioxidant effects. To limit the use rats (reduction) and maximize the number in the treatment groups, no additional group was used to study a
