  1. The number of correctly classified animals (infected versus non-infected) at day five and day 19 post infection using increasing numbers of SELDI-TOF-MS protein components. Serum protein profiles were generated from three week old piglets experimentally infected with either a combination of PCV2 and PRRSV (PCV2/PRRSV), PCV2 and PPV (PCV2/PPV), or phosphate buffered saline (controls). In the top row, for each experimental group the total number of animals included in the analysis is specified between brackets.
