  1. For this purpose the percent change from baseline were calculated for each individual monkey for all time points. Significant P-values are noted in bold. P-values with a trend towards significance (P < 0.1) are noted italics and non-significant differences are indicated by NS. However, it must be noted that when the correlations are subjected to Bonferroni correction, a P-value of < 0.0033 is required for significance.
