  • a Number of rods observed per field of view.

  • b Clumping was rated on a scale of 1 to 4, as follows: 1, motile clumps containing ≤10 cells; 2, nonmotile clumps containing 5 to 20 cells; 3, nonmotile clumps containing 20 to 50 cells; 4, nonmotile clumps containing 50 cells.

  • c −, no movement; +, slow; ++, moderate; +++++, very fast movement.
