  1. The number of correctly classified animals according to disease status (3 way classification), based on serum protein profiles consisting of variable number of protein components. Serum protein profiles were obtained at day five and 19 post infection (p.i.) and data of both time points were combined for the statistical analysis. Protein components were selected based on their differential expression in piglets infected with PCV2/PPV, PCV2/PRRSV and control piglets, using those with the lowest p-values. In the top row, for each experimental group the total number of animals included in the analysis is specified between brackets.
