We developed a rapid in vitro test for determining the association of Campylobacter jejuni and C. coli with HeLa cells. Association was expressed as a weighted mean of the number of bacteria associated with one cell in an association index (AI). The reproducibility of the AI was checked by repeating the test six times, using four strains chosen at random.(More)
Erythromycin (15 mg) or lyophylized heat-killed Lactobacillus acidophilus (80 mg) were administered per os daily in germ-free mice infected at day O with 10(7)-10(8) Campylobacter jejuni per os. Bacterial colonization of intestine and bacterial translocation of C. jejuni toward mesenteric lymph nodes, blood and liver were then studied for 5 days. The(More)
The consequences of postoperative infection at the site of microsurgical repair were studied. The experiment used 60 Wistar rats which were divided into 3 groups of 20 each. The femoral artery, vein, and nerve were transected unilaterally and repaired using microsurgical techniques. Staphylococcus aureus was then inoculated into the wound of group 1.(More)
