Table 6 Statistics on frequency histograms of volume and surface distribution of epithelial compartment of the thin portion of the air-blood barrier. F and P indicate either failed or passed for the normality test. For the significance of the median values the Dunn's method was used, while for that of the mean values the Holm-Sidak method was used.
