Table 3 Association between adenosine deaminase 1 (ADA1), adenosine deaminase 2 (ADA2), total adenosine deaminase (tADA) as analysed in serum, and inflammatory, hormonal and clinical markers in saliva*, serum** and plasma*** from 76 sows in the periparturient period. Positive associations are indicated by (+) in front of the value analysed, and negative association are indicated by (−) symbols

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