Serum albumin levels during the course of PICV infection in hamsters. Groups of hamsters were infected with ~5 plaque-forming units of PICV and serum was obtained following sacrifice on days 1, and 3-7 of PICV infection. Samples were assayed for albumin concentration. Data represent the means and standard deviations of 3-4 hamsters per group. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01 compared to day 0 animals using ANOVA with the Newman-Keuls multiple comparison test.
