Red cell indices. Mean corpuscular volume (MCV) (a), mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (MCHC) (c), and mean corpuscular haemoglobin (MCH) (e) on days 0, 7, 14, 28 and 42 post-admission. Geometric means (filled circle) and standard deviations (bars) are shown. Number of samples (N) and statistically significant differences (*P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001, ****P < 0.0001) relative to day 42 are indicated along the top of each panel. Normal reference area is indicated by grey shading. Linear correlation of admission (day 0) and steady-state (day 42) data (b, d, f). Correlation between MCV, MCHC and MCH levels at admission (day 0) and at steady-state (day 42) (b, d, f). Individual data points (filled circle), and the associated linear regression line (with 95% confidence interval) are shown. The linear correlation coefficient (R2), its statistical significance, and the number of data points are indicated in the panel margin
