a Children who experience at least one URI within 60 days of sample collection (n = 17) exhibit significantly lower phylogenetic diversity than those who do not (n = 23) experience any URI within this time period (Welch’s t test, P = 0.05; Shapiro-Wilk test P > 0.17). b Increased phylogenetic diversity is significantly correlated with a greater number of days between sample collection and first subsequent URI (Spearman Correlation, r = 0.421, P = 0.007). Trendline and confidence intervals indicate that this relationship is also significant based on regression analysis (F test; R 2 = 0.233; P = 0.0016). c Children with four or more URIs (n = 13) exhibit significantly lower phylogenetic diversity than those who experienced no URIs (n = 8) over the 12-month clinical monitoring period (Wilcoxon rank-sum test, P = 0.05)
