Table 2: Bronchiole pathological scores (median, interquartile range) of the left lung collected from Trial-2 mice three days post influenza virus challenge (refer to Figure 1 for vaccination history). Medians that do not share a letter are significantly different (p<0.05, Kruskal-Wallis test). BE: Bronchiolar Epithelium.
