Antibody responses in cotton rats from Florida and Texas. A) Neutralizing antibody (NAb) titers in Florida group (n = 3–11) and Texas group (n = 1–17) inoculated with subtypes IE or ID Venezuelan equine encephalitis virus (VEEV). B) Long-term NAb titers in Florida rats infected with subtype IE VEEV (n = 2). C) Hemagglutination inhibition (HI) antibody titers for Florida (n = 2–10) and Texas (n = 1–16) rats inoculated with subtype IE VEEV. D) Immunoglobulin M antibody titers for Florida and Texas rats infected with subtype IE VEEV (n = 2). OD, optical density.
