Mean CD4 counts in naïve and tumor-bearing mice

NaïveTumor-bearingP for comparison

  • NOTE: Differences at all sites measured are significant as indicated by the included P values. Additionally, differences between ipsilateral and contralateral cervical lymph nodes within tumor-bearing mice are significant (P = 0.014), with ipsilateral cervical lymph nodes showing greater reduction in counts.
