aMice were treated as described in Table 1. Peripheral hemoglobin concentration were determined at selected days after irradiation, and shown as means ± SD, n=12. Statistical analysis was conducted using two-way ANOVA, with Bonferronipost test. There was no significant difference between control and G-CSFa groups (P>0.05). bP<0.001, compared to d0
