Figure 3: Effects of Astragalus polysaccharides on the T-cell subsets. Dampness stagnancy due to spleen deficiency rats was treated with Astragalus polysaccharides for 14 days. The percentage of CD4+ T-cells, CD3+ CD4+ T-cells, and CD3+ CD8+ T-cells and CD3+ CD4+ to CD3+ CD8+ ratio were determined by flow cytometry (a, b, c, and d, respectively). Images are shown in the control group (a1 and b1), dampness stagnancy due to spleen deficiency group (a2 and b2), Shen Ling Bai Zhu San group (a3 and b3), and Astragalus polysaccharides group (a4-a6 and b4-b6). Data are expressed as mean ± standard deviation for six animals in each group, *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01 between the control group and other groups; #P < 0.05, ##P < 0.01 between the dampness stagnancy due to spleen deficiency group and drug-treated group
