Table 1. Comparison of ERG measures among different dose levels

The table includes mean (std.error) values for photoreceptor- and postreceptor-based ERG measures in each of the five groups of eyes as well as showing the statistical significance of the overall differences and linear trend. Photoreceptor measure corresponds to log(Rmax*S) parameter derived from ERG photoresponses and it is specified in units of log μV. scot-cd-1.m2.s-3. Postreceptor measure corresponds to log(Vmax/K) parameter derived from ERG luminance response functions and it is specified in units of log μV. scot-cd-1.m2.s-1. One-way ANOVA with repeated measures was used to evaluate overall differences which were highly significant. Both ERG parameters show a significant linear trend with dose suggesting a dose response relationship. Pairwise post-hoc comparisons are made between the eyes at each dose level and control eyes, and significance of the differences specified with asterisk: single asterisk corresponds to 0.01<p<0.05, and double asterisk corresponds to p<0.01.
