Table 1 Body and organ weights after exposure period and exercise period

From: Effects of exercise training on pulmonary vessel muscularization and right ventricular function in an animal model of COPD

  Fresh air Cigarette smoke Significance
  Sedentary Exercise Sedentary Exercise F1 F2 I
Body weight (g) 26.2 ± 1.5 23.4 ± 3.6 24.0 ± 1.8 22.9 ± 1.1 .055 .007 (.21)
Liver weight (g) .96 ± .06 .97 ± .14 1.02 ± .10 1.02 ± .08 .046 .79 (.95)
Liver weight/body weight (%) 3.6 ± .2 4.1 ± .2 4.3 ± .3 4.5 ± .2 <.001 <.001 (.08)
  1. F1-column: p-value for main effect of smoke exposure; F2-column: p-value for main effect of exercise; I-column: p-values for interaction term between smoke exposure and exercise. 2-way ANOVA, interaction term removed if not significant (p-value for interaction term presented in parenthesis). Data presented as mean ± SD.
