  1. P-values: P1 (axial ratios of untreated diabetes RBCs versus DFX-treated) and P2 (axial ratios of untreated diabetes RBCs versus DFO-treated) (significant p-value was taken as ≤ 0.05; comparisons done on a paired basis) (Figure 3). Bold values are above and italic values below the reference (normal) range.
