  • a Number of PMN (103) per 106 GT cells (± standard errors of the means) 7 days postinfection. PMN were identified in a pool of genital tract cells by flow cytometry, using LY6G monoclonal antibody. Data are compiled from three independent experiments.

  • b Number of DC (103) per 106 GT cells (± standard errors of the means) 7 days postinfection. DC were identified in a pool of genital tract cells by flow cytometry using CD11c monoclonal antibody. Data are compiled from three independent experiments.

  • c No statistical difference in ratios of PMN or DC in oviduct/cervical-vaginal tissue was observed between doses by a one-way ANOVA on ranks.
