Table S1. Hematological parameters and white blood cell counts determined on study days 1 and 29. Abbreviations: MCV, mean cell volume; MCH, mean cellular hemoglobin; MCHC, mean cellular hemoglobin concentration. Table S2. Differences in hematological parameters and white blood cell counts between groups and over time. Values of SD 1 and SD 29 were compared between uninfected animals and infected animals altogether. Additionally, differences over time were calculated for both groups. Abbreviations: x ¯ $$ \overline{\mathrm{x}} $$ , mean; σ, standard deviation. Table S3. Serum titer development over time within groups. In brackets: test statistic χ2 and degrees of freedom df according to the Friedman rank sum test. Abbreviations: SD, study day; x ¯ $$ \overline{\mathrm{x}} $$ , mean titer; σ, standard deviation. Table S4. Results (as P-values) of antibody titer comparisons between groups on each study day. Significant differences (P ≤ 0.05) are indicated in bold. Abbreviations: SD, study day; SL, Single Low; SH, Single High; TL, Trickle Low; TH, Trickle High; C, Control. Table S5. Change of cytokine mRNA expression of white blood cells over time within groups. Expression levels of study days 8, 15 and 29 of each group were compared to those of study day 1. Significant differences (P ≤ 0.05) are indicated in bold. Abbreviations: SD, study day; SL, Single Low; SH, Single High; TL, Trickle Low TH, Trickle High; C, Control. Table S6. Cytokine mRNA expression of white blood cells before infection. Expression values of study day 1 were compared between groups and resulting P-values are shown. Significant differences (P ≤ 0.05) are indicated in bold. Abbreviations: SL, Single Low; SH, Single High; TL, Trickle Low; TH, Trickle High; C, Control. (XLSX 34 kb)
