Table 5. Blood parameters after sphingosine inhalation. Blood studies showed that inhalation of sphingosine had not effects on blood parameters. WBC - White blood counts in 103 cells/μL, RBC - Red blood counts in 106 cells/μL, Hb - Hemoglobin in g/dL, HCT - hematocrit in %, PLT - platelets in 103 cells/μL, MCV - mean cell volume in μm3, MCH - mean cell hemoglobin in pg, MCHC - mean cell hemoglobin concentration in g/dL, T-Pro - total protein in g/dL, Alb - Albumin in g/dL, T-Bil - total bilirubin in mg/dL, GOT - glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase in IU/L, GPT - glutamic pyruvic transaminase in IU/L, LDH - lactate dehydrogenase in IU/L, BUN - blood urea nitrogen in mg/dL, γGT - γ-glutamyltransferase in IU/L, CPK - creatinine-phosphokinase in IU/L, Glucose in mg/dL, Creatinine in in mg/dL, Amylase in IU/L. Given are the means SD of each parameter from 4 pigs per group *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001, compared to 0.9% NaCl, ANOVA
