Table 2 Pearson correlation between toxin neutralizing titres (goat serum) and mouse survival.

From: Use of the mice passive protection test to evaluate the humoral response in goats vaccinated with Sterne 34F2 live spore vaccine

  Undiluted sera 1:5 1:10 1:50 1:100 1:1000
Pearson correlation (rs) 0.064 0.522 0.655 0.203 0.324 −0.317
