Tissue distribution of FMDV in nonvaccinated cattle during early infection

TABLE 2
  • a Except as indicated, the numbers shown are GCN/mg (tissues) or GCN/µl (serum). Underlined numbers are values for samples positive by both qRT-PCR and virus isolation. Numbers not underlined indicate FMDV RNA detection without virus isolation. −, samples negative by both qRT-PCR and virus isolation; +, samples positive by virus isolation but negative by qRT-PCR. The clinical score represents FMDV lesion distribution, with a maximum score of 5 corresponding to lesions detected in the mouth and on all four feet.
