  1. Litters from both treatments were combined and included in the analyses. The sample sizes were n = 9 litters for NP-MD-8 group; n = 8 litters for NP-Alc-8 group. P values before and after multiple testing adjustment using Benjamini-Hochberg method are presented
  2. *Statistical significance at P < 0.05
