Table 2 PredX did not affect body weight in males or females

From: Sex differences in the traumatic stress response: PTSD symptoms in women recapitulated in female rats

Group Body weight in grams (SEM)
Baseline Post-test
Male Ctrl 277.1 (3.8) 314.5* (5.2)
PredX 273.2 (3.9) 306.2* (4.8)
Female Ctrl 175.8 (2.3) 191.9* (2.4)
PredX 176.1 (1.7) 192.9* (2.0)
  1. Rats were weighed before undergoing PredX or control conditions (baseline) and on the day of the dexamethasone suppression test (post-test). PredX did not affect body weight and all rats gained weight over the course of the experiment (*, vs baseline). As expected, all females weighed less than males. Data presented as mean ± SEM. Significance set at P < .05 (indicated by asterisk) for planned pairwise comparisons (Bonferroni). Refer to Additional file 2 for full statistical results
