  1. Note: Total antibody levels were measured by an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) using commercial kits. 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)
