  1. WBC white blood cells, RBC red blood cells. n = six animals per time point of infection. Data are presented as mean ± SDs and relative values. For leukocytes population, significant differences (p ≤ 0.05) related to 0, 1, 3, 5, 7 and 14 dpi are represented by a, b, c, d, e and f, respectively. For red blood cells, significant differences (p ≤ 0.05) are represented by * in relation to control group
