Effect of fusafungine on adherence of Haemophilus influenzae type b to human epithelial cells in vitro.

Abstract

The first step of infection is adherence to epithelial cells of the nasopharynx through glycopeptidic adhesins, or pili. Adherence to human epithelial cells in continuous lines, HeLa and Hep2, of 8 piliated strains of Haemophilus influenzae isolated from human… (More)
