Serum concentrations of sICAM (top) and TIMP-1 (bottom) are presented as mean ± SD. SICAM concentration was larger 4 hours after TE in group T compared to group Co and H (p < 0.001; asterisks). SICAM-concentration was larger in group TH compared to group Co and group H (p < 0.05). After 24 hours, sICAM concentration was larger in group T compared to group H and TH (p < 0.01) and group Co (p < 0.05). The concentration in group Co was larger compared to group H and TH (p < 0.01). Levels of significance between the groups were the same for TIMP-1 concentrations after 4 hours. The TIMP-1 concentration after 24 hours was significantly larger compared to group Co and H (p < 0.01) and group TH (p < 0.05) as indicated by the asterisks.
