Blood neutrophil number in whole blood from naïve, control, and treated periodontal-diseased rats. For specific cell counting (%), a smear of the blood was prepared and stained by Panotic L.B. haematological dye system and observed under a light microscope (1000-fold). Celecoxib (12 mg/kg/day) or morphine (1 mg/kg/day) was subcutaneously administered for 3 consecutive days, from 3rd to 5th day after ligature placement as described in Materials and Methods. and # indicate significant difference ( .05) in relation to naive and control group, respectively; one-way ANOVA followed by Student-Newman-Keuls test, 4–6 animals per group.
