Development of signal intensities of grouped antigens inducing a long-term antibody response (A) and a short-term antibody response (B).

<p>Sera of individual patients (n = 36) were drawn upon admission (week 0 <i>p</i>.<i>a</i>.), 12 and 52 weeks <i>p</i>.<i>a</i>. Two graphs per antigen are shown. Left: the mean signal intensity per serum. Right: number of sera recognizing the respective antigen. Figures include only data of antigens found to be significantly recognized by melioidosis-positive sera. Statistical analyses were performed using repeated-measures ANOVA followed by Bonferroni's Multiple Comparison test comparing signal intensities measured in sera of week 0, 12 and 52 <i>p</i>.<i>a</i>. (*<i>p</i><0.05; **<i>p</i><0.01; ***<i>p</i><0.001)</p>
