The effects of Escherichia coli O55:B5, O127:B8, and O111:B4 serotypes' lipopolysaccharides (LPS) on body temperature were investigated in rats. LPSs were injected intraperitoneally at doses of 2, 50, and 250 microg/kg. A multiphasic and no-dose dependent increase in rectal temperature was observed in response to E. coli O55:B5 LPS at all doses, and in… CONTINUE READING
