  1. Pearson’s correlation coefficient between the density of Mac-1+ MΦ vs densities of TUNEL+, HLA-DR+, SOD2+ or TP53+ cells. Data used for the correlation analyses were the mean of the (immuno) histomorphometrical quantifications. The significant correlations were highlighted in bold and correspond to the images framed with green in Fig. 5. Abbreviations: r, Correlation coefficient; p, P-value; n, Number of animals
