  1. All values are given as mean ± standard deviation (n = 10); the suffixes indicates statistical difference between dry and wet samples (two-tails paired t test, *p = 1.48E−9, p = 8.40E−6). The optical density of OFMs alone or impregnated with rose bengal solutions could not be measured because of their opacity
