Table 2 Male and female mice fed emodin for 12-weeks do not show pertubations in CBC counts. White blood cells (WBC), lymphocytes (LYM), monocytes (MON), neutrophils (NEU), neutrophil:lymphoctye ratio (NLR), red blood cells (RBC), hemoglobin (HGB), hematocrit (HCT), and platelets (PLT) were measured using a VetScan HMT (Abaxis, Union City, CA). n = 5/group
