Figure 4: Tissue weight in mouse protection studies using the prime-boost method. Groups of mice vaccinated with HVJ-E DNA and/or BCG were challenged by intravenous injection with M. tuberculosis H37Rv. Five weeks after challenge, spleen weight was measured. Results are expressed as the mean ± S.D. in grams (g). The statistical significance of differences between individual groups in the weight was determined by Dunnett test ( ), ; the statistical significance of differences ( ) of the G1 (naive) group compared to the G2 group (BCG-alone group), G3 group (DNA/DNA/DNA), G4 group (BCG/DNA/DNA), or G5 group (DNA/DNA/BCG).
