Table 5 Effect of one year supplementation of soy or control foods on platelet parameters

From: Soy protein supplementation does not cause lymphocytopenia in postmenopausal women

Measures Control (n = 27) Soy (n = 35)
  Baseline Final Change (%) Baseline Final Change (%)
PLT (×103/mm3) 278 ± 11 271 ± 11 -2.07 267 ± 10 274 ± 10 +2.82
MPV (um3) 9.17 ± 0.17 9.18 ± 0.17 +0.31 9.15 ± 0.15 9.16 ± 0.15 +0.44
PCT (%) 0.254 ± 0.009 0.247 ± 0.009 -1.58 0.242 ± 0.008 0.249 ± 0.008 +3.35
PDW (%) 17.3 ± 0.5 17.5 ± 0.5 +1.44 16.7 ± 0.4 16.7 ± 0.4 +0.96
  1. Data represent least square mean ± SE.
  2. No differences were observed between the soy and control groups when parameters where expressed as change (%) from baseline.
  3. PLT = platelet count; MPV = mean platelet volume; PCT = plateletcrit; PDW = platelet distribution width.
