  1. Proportions of macrophages isolated from subcutaneous adipose tissues of women of premenopausal age (SCAT, n = 15) and from visceral and perivascular adipose tissues (VAT and PVAT, n = 16) of women of postmenopausal age (SCAT, n = 16, VAT and PVAT, n = 17), n.s. non-significant
  2. The results are expressed as the mean of the proportion ±SD and by significance according to the Student’s paired parametric t test and the * Student’s unpaired parametric t test
