Figure 8: Photomicrographs of control liver and liver of rats in the experimental groups. Liver of the control rat showed normal hepatocytes (a). In contrast, vascular congestion with necrotic materials (b) and lipoid necrosis (c) were observed in the liver of rats treated with tamoxifen (45 mg/kg). On the other hand, the liver of rats treated with lycopene (10 mg/kg) + tamoxifen (45 mg/kg) showed lipoid cells, (d) whereas the liver of rats supplemented with lycopene (20 mg/ kg) + tamoxifen (45 mg/kg) and lycopene (40 mg/kg) + tamoxifen (45 mg/kg), respectively, showed inflammatory cells infiltrations (e and f)
