The cilia-associated respiratory (CAR) bacillus is an unclassified, gram-negative bacterium that has been implicated as an etiologic agent of respiratory tract disease in laboratory rodents. A morphologically and antigenically similar organism has been identified in rabbits and is thought to be a related bacterium, although clinical signs of disease and histologic lesions are absent in infected rabbits. To compare the pathogenicity of rat- and rabbit-origin CAR bacillus isolates in rabbits… CONTINUE READING
