CREA = creatinine (μmol/l), UREA = urea (mmol/l), CK = creatine kinase (μkat/l), M. musculus = BALB/c mice, M. arvalis = Microtus arvalis, 0 = control group, 1 to 6 = groups of animals sampled on days 1 to 6 post-infection, n = 10 in each group, * = p < 0.05, ** = p < 0.01 when compared against control group. Values represent mean ± SD.
