Third study with E. acervulina – evolution of the percentage of sporulation of oocysts of E. acervulina (PA3 strain) collected in the duodenum every two hours from 88 to 96 h after infection. One hundred oocysts were observed for each sample. Each value is the mean value of five birds (corresponding individual values are between parentheses). Percentage of sporulation was evaluated after incubation for 3 or 10 days at 28 °C. The percentage of sporulation of oocysts collected in droppings is given in the last line of the table. Different letters in superscript in a same column mean statistically significant differences (Kruskal–Wallis test followed by Mann–Whitney test).
