All data are Mean ± SD of each group. Newman keuls test was performed for statistical significance between control group vs Cd exposed group and Cd exposed group vs ceftriaxone plus sulbactam with VRP1034 treated group. Where ***p<0.001 (highly significant) **p<0.01(significant); *p<0.05 (significant) Nsp>0.05 (non significant).
