Table 2 Impact of viral infection on the mouse and ferret lymphocyte populations in whole blood

From: The mouse and ferret models for studying the novel avian-origin human influenza A (H7N9) virus

Animal Time (d.p.i.) WBCa % LYb % NEb
Mouse -1c 12.0 78.4 12.5
1 11.4 64.4 23.3
2 6.9* 48.7* 43.8*
3 5.5* 62.5 27.1
5 6.8* 77.1 15.7

Ferret -1 15.9 64.8 17.9
7 8.4* 38.8* 57.6*
14 13.4 55.1 37.7*
  1. a Number of white blood cells (WBC) in whole blood, expresses as thousands of WBCs per microliter of whole blood.
  2. b Mean percentage of leukocytes that are lymphocytes (LY) or neutrophils (NE) from 6 mice per group.
  3. c -1 d.p.i.: the day before inoculation.
  4. * Statistical significance: * P<0.05 compared to the values of -1 d.p.i..
