  1. Note: Skin lesions were scored on a 0–5 grade based on the inflammatory reaction in toe area of the hind limb as well as the lesion areas of the experimentally infested rabbits. The different superscript letters within a row denote significant differences between different groups (P < 0.05). The different superscript letters in parentheses within a column denote significant differences between the different time points (P < 0.05)
  2. Abbreviation: QX, QiXing rabbit breed propagated by the Sichuan Animal Science Academy, China; IRA, IRA rabbit breed; WPI, week post-infestation; SD, standard deviation
