Table 1 Organ weight in control and MDMA–treated groups

From: “Ecstasy” toxicity to adolescent rats following an acute low binge dose

  Control MDMA
 Heart weight/Brain weight ratio 0.33 ± 0.03 0.32 ± 0.05
 Kidneys weight/Brain weight ratio 0.69 ± 0.03 0.66 ± 0.07
 Liver weight/Brain weight ratio 3.42 ± 0.17 3.15 ± 0.36
  1. Liver weight/brain weight ratio, heart weight/brain weight ratio, and kidneys weight/brain weight ratio of control and MDMA-treated rats. Results are presented as mean ± standard deviation, and were obtained from seven animals in each group. The mean brain weight of control animals was 1.57 ± 0.04, and of MDMA-treated was 1.63 ± 0.05. Statistical comparisons were made using the t-test for the heart weight/brain weight ratio and the Mann-Whitney Rank Sum test for the liver weight/brain weight ratio and kidneys weight/brain weight ratio
