Figure 4: Light micrograph of kidney sections (H and E, ×10). (a) Control groups and (b) CSE (100 mg/kg) showed the normal renal histological structure (score 0), (c) diabetic group showed thickening of Bowman capsule (£) and retraction of glomerular tuft (α), and necrosis in more than 25% of the proximal (μ) and distal tubules (β) (score 4), (d) diabetic + 100 mg/kg and (e) diabetic + 200 mg/kg crab shell extract showed normal structure without signs of pathology (necrosis or inflammation) in the cortex and little changes in the medulla and interstitium (score 1), (f) Diabetic + 400 mg/kg of crab shell extract reveals thickening of Bowman capsule (score 2)
