Table 1 Body weight gain (total body weight on 20th day), food intake, tumor weight/carcass weight, fetal weight of the groups studied.

From: Effects of leucine supplemented diet on intestinal absorption in tumor bearing pregnant rats

  Body weight gain (%) Food intake (%) Tumor weight/carcass weight (%) Fetal weight (g)
C 30,21 ± 0,27 98,77 ± 4,55   
N 45,02 ± 1,32 a 95,75 ± 4,85   3,73 ± 0,13
WN 22,83 ± 0,53 b 40,01 ± 3,56 ab 7,81 ± 0,27 1,61 ± 0,22 b
Np 26,01 ± 1,07 b    2,98 ± 0,34

  1. Body weight gain was determined from the rate final body weight gain in relation to initial body weight gain (%). Food intake was expressed as a percentage of initial and final food intake (%) Data are reported as means ± SE from 10 animals per group. Groups: control (C); pregnant control (N); pregnant tumor-bearing (WN); pregnant control pair-fed to tumor-bearing groups (Np); pregnant control receiving a leucine supplemented diet (L), pregnant tumor-bearing receiving a leucine supplemented diet (WL) and pregnant control leucine pair-fed group (Lp). a p < 0,05 compared to control group (C); b p < 0,05 N vs WN and L vs WL.
