  1. Included are the median lethal time from Kaplain-Meier analysis and its significance relative to paired controls; time to 80% mortality (±1 standard error around the mean mortality across the replicate cages); and the hazard ratio estimated from a Cox regression which gives a measure of mortality risk relative to the controls.
