Table 2 In control group animals, frequency of plaques, ulceration and thrombosis were negligible (shown as none) while atherosclerosis group animals showed different mean values for plaque frequency, ulceration and thrombosis in rabbits (n = 9). Frequency of plaques, ulceration and thrombosis are shown in atherosclerosis group of rabbits (n = 9).
