Table 2 Mean adenosine deaminase 1 (ADA1), adenosine deaminase 2 (ADA2) and total adenosine deaminase (tADA) activities (IU/ml) in serum from 38 sows with postpartum dysgalactia syndrome (PDS+) and 38 healthy sows (PDS-) in the periparturient period. Values for period B to G are compared to baseline (period A), where 0 h is the time of birth of the first piglet

From: Changes of adenosine deaminase activity in serum and saliva around parturition in sows with and without postpartum dysgalactia syndrome

  1. a No significant interaction between time and case-control was found for ADA2 in serum. However, an overall strong trend for differences between PDS+ and PDS- (p = 0.0514) was estimated using the statistic model B (OUTCOME PARAMETERij = μ + TIMEi + GROUPj + ε)
