1 Samples (1 μg) were assayed in duplicate and the means were determined. Standard deviations were calculated using the sum of the errors of the viral and OSM copy number determinations, as described in Materials and Methods.

* These results, while positive for both duplicates, were outside of the linear range of the assay.
