Sex variation in disease phenotype. The differences in data distribution for body condition score (BCS) by sex (P < 0.001), in the degree of pyrexia (°C) of the study population (n = 247) by sex (P < 0.001), and the degree of anaemia (%) of the Trypanosoma spp.-positive study population (n = 162) by sex (P = 0.03). Degree of pyrexia (°C) was calculated as difference between the animal’s rectal temperature and upper reference value for rectal temperature (horse 38.5 °C; donkey 37.8 °C). Degree of anaemia (%) was calculated as difference between the animal’s HCT and the lower reference value (horse 31%; donkey 27%). ***P < 0.001, **P < 0.01, *P < 0.05
