  1. 1 Type III P values are shown; NSD = no statistical difference.
  2. 2 Comparison between Se-D/MC, Se-M/MC and Se-N/MC guinea pigs killed at week 5 and 12, 48 and 24 hrs post AA dosing, respectively (n = 31).
  3. 3 Comparison between Se-N/MC and Se-N/NC guinea pigs killed at week 5 and 12, 48 and 24 hrs post AA dosing, respectively (n = 22).
  4. 4 Analyses to determine a decreasing or increasing trend with decreasing Se in the diet. Comparison of Se-D/MC, Se-M/MC and Se-N/MC guinea pigs killed at week 5 and 12, 48 and 24 hrs post AA dosing, respectively (n = 31). All significant values indicate a decreasing trend with decreasing Se in the diet, except for liver DHAA which indicates an increasing trend.
