  1. aFour subjects in group 3D were also sampled in group 3B. In each case, the group 3D sample was taken more than 1 year after the 3B sample (see Additional file 1 for details).
  2. bSample sets Tx34B and Tx41B appear as Tx34 and Tx41, respectively, in Charlson 2012. The initial time points were not included in the previous publication because OW samples were not collected at the time of sampling.
