  • a 1°, primary infection; 2°, repeat infection.

  • b There was no statistical difference by dose in the number of oviducts with respective hydrosalpinx scores by Spearman rank order correlation (P > 0.05).

  • c Number of oviducts per dose assigned respective hydrosalpinx scores based on gross diameter following removal of genital tracts from mice 49 days post-primary infection (1°) or 6 days after a repeat infection (2°). Data are representative of results from four independent experiments with four to seven mice per experiment. Hydrosalpinx scores are as follows: 0, none; 1, increase; 2, 2.5 mm in diameter; and 3, ≥ 3.5 mm in diameter.
