  • a Average pathologic skin score (±SD) in each of the five categories that comprises the total skin pathologic score in hair-bearing skin from recipient BALB/c and BALB.K mice. Data are pooled (BALB/c, n = 20 and BALB.K, n = 24) from recipients of total spleen cells from Figs. 1 and 2. , p < 0.05; ∗, p < 0.0001.
