Normal: normal rats that did not induce osteoarthritis, Control: monosodium iodoacetate (MIA)-induced and distilled water administrated osteoarthritis rats, INDO: MIA-induced and indomethacin 5 mg/kg administrated osteoarthritis rats, EIIT100: MIA-induced and Euiiin-tang 100 mg/kg administrated osteoarthritis rats, EIIT200: MIA-induced and Euiiin-tang 200 mg/kg administrated osteoarthritis rats.
