Table 6 Percentage of apoptotic, necrotic and viable cells of 256 Walker tumors

From: Antitumor and anti-cachectic effects of shark liver oil and fish oil: comparison between independent or associative chronic supplementation in Walker 256 tumor-bearing rats

Groups Apoptotic cells (%) Necrotic cells (%) Viable cells (%)
W 19.8 ± 2.3 30.6 ± 1.1 49.6 ± 2.7
WSLO 56.9 ± 1.0a 12.8 ± 1.2a 28.9 ± 1.5a
WFO 68.5 ± 2.9ab 7.5 ± 0.9ab 23.7 ± 1.0a
WSLO + FO 64.8 ± 0.6ab 13.5 ± 0.5a 21.6 ± 0.7ab
  1. Values determined by FACS (fluorescence-activated cell sorting), from animals fed regular regular chow (W), and supplemented with SLOil (WSLO), FOil (WFO), and both (WSLO + FO). Data are presented as mean ± SEM of 4 independent experiments of 5 rats per group (n = 20). ap < 0,05 compared to W; bp < 0,05 compared to WSLO.
