  • a Titers are presented as the inverse of the last dilution of plasma with an optical density value greater than 0.1 absorbance units above the average negative control optical density value.

  • b The starting titer for plasma dilutions was 1:12.5.

  • c ND, not done (samples not available).

  • d The animal was euthanized for reasons unrelated to RhCMV infection.
