  1. Data are expressed as group means ± SD. P-values were calculated from two-way (group × time) ANOVA. No significant differences were noted between groups over time. To convert bilirubin from mg/dL into mmol/L multiply by 17.1; to convert cholesterol (total, LDL-C, VLDL-C and HDL-C) from mg/dL into mmol/L multiply by 0.0259; to convert triacylglycerol from mg/dL into mmol/L multiply by 0.0113.
