  1. Mice were treated with PANE as described in Figure 2. The spleen index was calculated as the spleen weight (mg) per body weight (g). Splenocytes were stained for CD4, CD8, B220 and CD11b and analyzed by flow cytometry. Data are expressed as mean ± SE of 11 samples per group pooled from 3 independent experiments.
