  1. Data are expressed as mean ± standard error. Number of animals in each group is ten. Mean, which have the same superscript symbol(s), are not significantly different. Percentage changes (%) were calculated by comparing normal group with DXM-treated group and pre-treated DXM groups with DXM-treated group
