  1. Raw parasitological data and haematological profiles of the R and N groups are reported in this Table. P-values were computed after correction for fixed effect and statistical transformation when appropriate. Phenotypic differences are the difference between the R and the N groups expressed in phenotypic standard deviation (σp).
