  1. aPrevalence of shedders in adult population. The unit of the monetary numbers is million dollars/10 years a. Ten percent is the same distribution of prevalence shown in Table 3; bAverage revenue calculated from results of 10 simulations; and cstatistically different (ANOVA followed by t test with Bonferroni and Holm adjustments, p < 0.01) from no ELISA-based control.
