Table 2 Mean (± SEM) of immune cell scores on placentomes collected in early gestation from dams inoculated with N. caninum carrying non-viable (dead calves or empty uterus) or viable foetuses (alive calves) at culling

From: Inflammatory infiltration into placentas of Neospora caninum challenged cattle correlates with clinical outcome of pregnancy
