I do not agree with Shamsul Muhamad. There may be someother points tp criticisae but the data presentation does not seem with any mistakes. The results given in table 2 to table 4 clearly shows the experiments performed for each dose was repeated three times. The graphical presentation, indeed, not shown with error bars as seen with figures 1,3,4,6,7,9. this may be due to several reasons: it could be due to authors either forgot to add error bars on graph, or forgot to activate such option of sofware used to plot the graphs, or the worse, the author(s) chose the results of one of the representative experiments. On the other hand, if the error bars are too small, they may not be visible in graphs unless the graphs enlarged to a half page for letter size or sometime to full page size.
