Peripheral blood leukocyte and neutrophil counts in WT and P/I null mice subjected to CLP and 2% glycogen-induced peritonitis. Control group represents normal mice that were not subjected to sham or peritonitis treatment. Sham (CLP) represents the CLP respective sham group. Data are expressed as mean ± SEM, representing the absolute number of cells X 106. * p ≤ 0.05 compared to respective control group; # p ≤ 0.05 wild-type compared to P/I null mice at the same time point and treatment. n represents the number of mice per each group.
