  1. AUC is area under the curve (%) and D is the statistics related to the difference between curves. P values lower than critical were in bold. Considering ten contrasts, critical P = 0.05/10 = 0.005. Factors appear in decreasing order of AUC, showed only at first time with respective 95 % confidence limits in parenthesis. Variable codes as in Table 1
