  • a NHPs were inoculated with strain N40 by needle (group 1) or by tick bite (group 2) or with strain Pbi by needle (group 3). Data are reported in arbitrary density units as mean densities and SDs (107).

  • b The P value was <0.01 for a comparison between group 1 or 2 and group 3.

  • c The P value was<0.01 for a comparison between groups 1 and 2.

  • d The P value was<0.05 for a comparison between group 1 or 2 and group 3.
