  1. Tissues were PCR tested and placed in Vero cell culture. “Low” and “high” indicate the dose the animal received (10000 or 100000 infected R. parkeri Vero cells). Days post injection (DPI) across the table represent time of euthanasia and tissue collection.
  2. * Signs before the slash indicate tissue results prior to culture, and signs after the slash signify PCR results of tissues after culture.
