Table 2 Rectal and transponder temperatures (°C), experiment II

From: A study on the applicability of implantable microchip transponders for body temperature measurements in pigs

Group ID Na Temperature range
   rectal max SD transponder max SD
Group 1 10 38.9-39.6 0.4 37.6-38.9 0.8
Group 2 10 38.7-39.5 0.6 37.9-39.0 0.8
Group 3 10 39.2-41.5 0.8 38.0-40.7 1.0
  1. Group 1: control group
  2. Group 2: CSFV-Glentorf infected
  3. Group 3: CSFV-Romania infected
  4. Na: number of pigs per group. Note that it is the initial number of pigs, i.e. the number at post infection day 0 that is stated. According to the experimental set-up, pigs were sequentially euthanized, i.e. 3 pigs from each group in week 1 and 2, respectively, thus in the 3rd week, only 4 pigs in each group were left and killed by termination of the study.
