Periuterine adipose tissue weight and morphological characteristics. a) Periuterine adipose tissue weight (%BW), b) Morphometric analysis of adipocyte cross sectional area (μm2) in Fischer 344 rats, c) Example images of periuterine adipocytes stained with hematoxylin and eosin (magnification 20X) from Reference, Tumour, and chemotherapy groups. Values are mean ± SEM, different superscripts (a, b, c) indicate significant differences (p < 0.05) determined by Kruskal–Wallis test for periuterine adipose tissue weight (n = 7–8/group) and one way ANOVA for cross sectional area (1500 cells/group; 5 animals/group). Bar = 50 μm. Abbreviations: REF, Reference; TUM, Tumour
