Figure 4: Photomicrographs of the Cerebellar Cortex. H and E staining observed at x100 magnification. Control group (a) reveal a normal cerebellar cortex histoarchitecture of molecular layer, Purkinje cell layer and granular layer; Experimental group mice (b) which were exposed to a high cholesterol diet for 8 weeks show different stages of reactive gliosis, pyknosis, and remarkable degeneration of the Purkinje cells. There are also vascular degeneration and reduction of the granule cells in the granular layer. Mice that received 200 mg/kg of methanolic extract of African mistletoe in the Extract group (c) shows an intact histomorphology. 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 significant structural recovery compared with the eontrol and experimental groups
