    Antibodies
    SentencesResources
    Detection of anti-Spike antibodies by ELISA: Anti-Spike antibodies in the human sera were detected by an anti-S enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) as described in our previous study (manuscript submitted).
    Anti-Spike
    suggested: None
    The value of the area under the curve (AUC) was used to evaluate the anti-S antibody titer [21, 22].
    anti-S
    suggested: None
    The measurement of anti-N antibody was performed according to the manufacturer’s instructions, and samples with a cut-off index (COI) >1.0 were diagnosed as positive.
    anti-N
    suggested: None
    Software and Algorithms
    SentencesResources
    Statistical analysis: The Kruskal-Wallis test, Dunn’s multiple comparison test, and Mann-Whitney U-test were performed by GraphPad Prism 8 (GraphPad Software, San Diego, CA).

    About SciScore

    SciScore is an automated tool that is designed to assist expert reviewers by finding and presenting formulaic information scattered throughout a paper in a standard, easy to digest format. SciScore checks for the presence and correctness of RRIDs (research resource identifiers), and for rigor criteria such as sex and investigator blinding. For details on the theoretical underpinning of rigor criteria and the tools shown here, including references cited, please follow this link.
