Cyclophosphamide (CY, 250 mg/kg) was intraperitoneally administered to mice. Four days after, a rifampicin-resistant strain of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA, S. aureus 1-6 RFPr) was intravenously inoculated at the level of 10(7) cfu/mouse. Distribution and localization of the inoculated organism were chronologically investigated by means of whole body autobacteriography. CY (100 mg/kg) was consecutively administered for 4 days following the inoculation. As a result, dense… CONTINUE READING
