Figure 2. Euclidean distance model or multiple distance scaling indicated that the ability to reduce nitroblue terazolium dye by the neutrophils (e) of the study rats was closely related to the percentages of the polarized neutrophils (f). On the other hand, phagocytic activity of the neutrophils (b) was closely related to that of the plasma endogenous cholesterol (d). This model further showed that plasma glucose (a) and total number of yeasts phagocytosed by neutrophils (c) are distantly related.
