  1. Data include: Ages and numbers (n) of animals in each age; Diameter (d, in μm) of hepatocyte nuclei (Hn) and numbers of positive cells (H) in an area (nr/area) of 46,800 μm2 (260 μm × 180 μm); Diameter (d, in μm) of Kupffer cell nuclei (Kn), both long axis (Lg d) and short axis (St d) and numbers of positive cells (K) in an area of 46,800 μm2; Ratios of numbers of hepatocytes (H)/numbers of Kupffer cells (K). Data are given as: mean (standard error).
