A group of researchers including Nadeem Sheikh at the Washington National Primate Research Center are currently performing in depth research into the development and assessment of AIDS vaccine efficacy.
In figure 1A, the two-panel graph shows the long-term loss of circulating CD3/4+ cells in unimmunized individuals (naïve), whereas immunized subjects show initial loss and then recovery of helper T cells. The researchers wanted to know whether the initial loss of cells in the immunized subjects was as great and rapid as observed with the naïve individuals and therefore used Origin's statistical features to assess the difference between the two groups (Fig. 1B).
