Figure 2. Body temperature, virus shedding, and antibody seroconversion after challenge with canine influenza virus. Body temperature was increased from 1 day postinoculation (dpi) and slowly decreased to normal temperature by 7 dpi. Virus shedding was detected from 1 dpi to 6 dpi by reverse transcription–PCR. However, the ELISA antibody titers increased after 6 dpi. Antibody titers were regarded as positive if percent inhibition (PI) was >50.
