Figure 1

Immune and hormone differences between bereaved and controls, old and young. (A) Neutrophil phagocytosis of FITC labelled E.coli presented as phagocytic index (bacteria ingested (MFI) ×% neutrophils uptaking bacteria) between young and old, bereaved and non-bereaved subjects. (B) Neutrophil superoxide production in response to E.coli presented as mean fluorescence intensity (MFI), between young and old, bereaved and non-bereaved. Serum (C) cortisol, (D) DHEAS or (E) the cortisol:DHEAS ratio for young and old, bereaved and non-bereaved subjects. Error bars are SEM and * indicates p < .05, ** indicates p < 0.01.
