  1. Results are given for 0 to 8 days post challenge (dpc) for control animals (co). Dashes represent negative PCR results of the respective samples. Viral RNA was not detected in the serum of vaccinated animals at any time. Therefore, vaccinated animals were not included in the table. From 5 dpc serum samples were not available. Consequently, the RNA load could not be determined (ND) for this time point.
