Table 2 Polymorphonuclear cells, lymphocytes and monocytes count of experimental rats after 20 weeks of treatment

From: Salt overload in fructose-fed insulin-resistant rats decreases paraoxonase-1 activity

  CON HF HFS
PMN cells (%) 5-15 3-27 7-23
Lymphocytes (%) 19-58 4-33** 7-20***
Monocytes (%) 27-76 36-85** 40-83*
  1. Values were obtained from groups CON (AIN diet and water for 20 weeks); HF (AIN diet + 20% fructose solution in water for 20 weeks), and HFS (8% high salt in AIN93 diet + 20% fructose solution in water for 10 weeks after previous treatment for a period of 10 weeks with HF). Kruskall Wallis test followed by Dunns test. Values indicate lowest and highest percentage of cells counted respectively. * P < 0.05 ; ** P < 0.01 ; *** P < 0.001 . Polymorphonuclear (PMN) cells.
