Results from the pattern analysis.
The exposure pattern is represented by four characters, constructed from “”, “”, and “X”, which represent detection, non-detection, and irrelevance, respectively, for the four time points of the analysis (days 4, 10, 30, and 120). The black points and lines represent estimated means and 95% confidence intervals for patterns that were found to be significantly close to zero at an false discovery rate of 5%. The crude contrasts (i.e. if “XX” was significant, the crude contrast would be “XX”) that were significantly different to zero at have their estimated means and 95% confidence intervals displayed in red. For the testing of the difference of the means of the two patterns, significant results (at ) is indicated by , otherwise significance is . Vertical lines are displayed at and , representing the boundaries of expected growth.
