  • a Spleen and bone marrow cells from three individual animals per group were obtained and processed at different time points as outlined in Materials and Methods. Numbers are expressed as cells × 107. The data represent the mean value of results from individual animals ± SEM. Two subsequent experiments using the same number of animals showed similar results.

  • b , Indicates a value of at least p < 0.05.
