  • a Data shown are serum markers from age- and gender-matched Hyp mice at 8 to 12 wk of age, which were treated by intraperitoneal injection of vehicle or calcitriol (100 ng/kg body wt) daily for 16 d. Data are expressed as mean ± SEM.

  • b Significant differences at P < 0.05 by t test analysis.
