Table 3 Comparison of body weight (BW) changes in weaned pigs treated at Day 0 with POE-POP during 5 weeks of the experiment

From: Effect of polyoxyethylene and polyoxypropylene nonionic block copolymers on performance and recruitment of immune cell subsets in weaned pigs

Day of experiment Mean BW(kg)of pigs treated with: Difference (POE-POP vs. Saline) p - value
