Figure 3: Photomicrographs of the striatum. H and E staining observed at x100 magnification. Control group (a) reveal a normal striatal histomorphology; Experimental group mice (b) which were exposed to a high cholesterol diet for 8 weeks show different stages of reactive gliosis, pyknosis and neurodegeneration. Mice that received 200 mg/kg of methanolic extract of African mistletoe in the extract group (c) no significant histological changes. Treatment group (d) mice that were posttreated with 200 mg/kg of methanolic extract of African mistletoe for 2 weeks after 8 weeks of feeding on a high cholesterol diet, reveal mild structural recovery
