Table 3 Effect of maternal exposure to carbon black nanoparticle on male offspring body weight

From: Dose-dependent induction of astrocyte activation and reactive astrogliosis in mouse brain following maternal exposure to carbon black nanoparticle

Group name Number of dams (Number of offspring) Age Body weight (g)
Control (Ultra-pure water) 5 (18) 6 weeks 33 ± 2
Low-dose CB-NP (2.9 μg/kg) 5 (18) 6 weeks 35 ± 3
Middle dose CB-NP (15 μg/kg) 5 (19) 6 weeks 33 ± 2
High dose CB-NP (73 μg/kg) 5 (20) 6 weeks 32 ± 1
  1. There were no significant between-group differences. Data are presented as the mean ± standard deviation. Abbreviations: CB-NP carbon black nanoparticle
