Figure 3: Corpus cavernosum from control and BPH rats treated with dutasteride or finasteride, and stained using Weigert's resorcin fuchsin and captured at ×600. Groups C + D and C + F show increased amounts of elastic fibers (compared to Group C), while Group H + D shows increased amounts compared to Group H. (a) Control group, composed of Wistar–Kyoto rats (C); (b) control animals receiving dutasteride (C + D); (c) control animals receiving finasteride (C + F); (d) group of BPH models (H); (e) group of BPH models receiving dutasteride (H + D); (f) group of BPH models receiving finasteride (H + F). Scale bars=25 μm. BPH: benign prostatic hyperplasia.
