From the first paper, you can see changes to body weight and temperature after each infection.
All subjects showed increased viral load after initial infection. The group that was re-infected did not show an increased viral load after re-infection.
The group that was re-infected did show a change in immune cell counts after re-infection whereas the monkeys that weren't re-infected showed no changes in the same time
Viral load after initial infection was found in various tissues. However, in the re-infected group, viral load was not detected in any of the same tissues.
This suggests the infection and re-infection were both done properly and that the virus was cleared and no longer present, even after re-infection
All 3 groups showed a reduced viral load after re-infection. It was still present in the high and medium exposure groups 1 day after re-infection, but not detectable in the low-exposure group.
Viral load was not detected after 6 days in all 3 exposure groups. These levels were all much higher in the initial infection
