Values are presented as mean ± SEM. The data of total WBC is their count in one mL of blood and those of each type are the percentage of total WBC. Statistical comparisons between COPD groups treated with Z. multiflora and dexamethasone: , , . Statistical comparison was done using unpaired -test. Statistical comparison between the effect of two higher concentrations of the extract (0.8 and 1.6 mg/mL) with its low concentration (0.4 mg/mL): , , . Statistical comparison between the effect of high concentration of the extract (1.6 mg/mL) with its medium concentration (0.8 mg/mL): , , . The statistical comparison was done using ANOVA with Tukey-Kramer multiple posttest.
