Table 1 Treatment-related changes in the yield of CAC and macrophages

From: Unacylated ghrelin modulates circulating angiogenic cell number in insulin-resistant states

Culture Treatment Normalized mean cell count post-txa p valueb
EBM-CAC Placebo 1.1 ± 1.2 0.219
3 µg/kg/h 1.0 ± 1.0 0.938
10 µg/kg/h 0.7 ± 0.6 0.045
Toyo-CAC Placebo 0.8 ± 0.7 0.507
3 µg/kg/h 0.6 ± 0.4 0.038
10 µg/kg/h 1.2 ± 0.8 0.780
macrophages Placebo 0.6 ± 0.5 0.053
3 µg/kg/h 0.9 ± 0.4 0.617
10 µg/kg/h 1.0 ± 0.8 0.097
  1. For each patient, the baseline values of that specific visit were compared with culture yields after treatment
  2. aThe mean obtained cell number of pre-tx samples was set at 1; mean post-tx number is expressed relative to this ± SD
  3. bSignificance was determined by paired t test
