a All values are mean ± SD. BUN, cholesterol, and glucose are in mg/dl.
b Group 5 sacrifice weight was higher than group 1.
c The CRF groups 2, 4, and 6 had significantly higher post-surgical BUN than group 1 (P < 0.01).
d Groups 2, 4, and 6 had significantly higher sacrifice BUN than group 1 (P < 0.01).
e Group 3 to 6 had significantly higher cholesterol than group 1 (P < 0.01).
