Effects of total litter mass on body mass in guinea pig females maintained on a control, high-PUFA, or high-SFA diet. Effects are corrected for the body mass at conception. a Effects on body mass prior to parturition. Control: p ≤ 0.001, PUFA: p ≤ 0.001, SFA: p ≤ 0.001; control vs. PUFA: n.s., control vs. SFA: n.s., PUFA vs. SFA: p ≤ 0.05. b Effects on body mass after parturition. Control: n.s., PUFA: p ≤ 0.05, SFA: n.s.; all group comparisons: n.s. (n.s.: not significant)
