BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Enterobacter cloacae is a well-recognized nosocomial pathogen. Use of a rapid, in vivo infection model for E. cloacae that can determine the efficacy of antibiotic therapies could help facilitate screening for new treatments. Nonmammalian model systems of infection, such as Galleria mellonella, have significant logistical and ethical… CONTINUE READING
