Quantities of activated adaptive immune agents participating in the simulated immune response. The numbers of agents participating in the viral infection simulation (109 runs with the 20 DCs starting conditions) for selected agent types are shown. The data are grouped by the outcome of each simulation run. Blue diamonds represent the mean of the immune wins (n = 58), pink squares represent the mean of the immune losses (n = 48) and green triangles represent the mean of the immune hyper-response data (n = 9), for every tick of the simulation runs (see inset in Figure 5h). The fine lines of matching color represent the standard deviation for each outcome at every tick. The inset plots contain the same data means (as the plots that contain them) for the initial ticks of the simulation, on a scale to show greater detail. Except for part h which shows data from infected Parenchymal agent counts in Zone 1, all of the other agent counts were recorded from Zone 2. Note that the scales for the numbers of agents differ for each plot.
