Blood polymorphonuclear leukocyte chemotaxis during experimental Escherichia coli bovine mastitis.

The relationship between the severity of experimental Escherichia coli mastitis and the chemotactic response of blood polymorphonuclear leukocytes was investigated before and during mastitis. Experimental E. coli mastitis was induced in 10 healthy cows by inoculation of the rear right quarters with 10(3) cfu of E. coli. Cows were classified into two groups… CONTINUE READING
