Cytologic and bacteriologic responses, and changes in cytokine activity were evaluated in secretions of Staphylococcus aureus-infected mammary glands after treatment of heifers with recombinant bovine interferon gamma (rbIFN gamma) or interleukin 2 (rbIL-2). Two groups of 4 heifers each, experimentally infected with 10(7) colony-forming units (CFU) of S aureus, were injected in 2 quarters via the teat canal, with 10(5) U of rbIFN gamma (trial 1) or 7.5 x 10(5) U of rbIL-2 (trial 2) 2 weeks… CONTINUE READING
