The identification of a new murine pathogen, Helicobacter hepaticus, and its association with chronic active hepatitis and liver tumors prompted an evaluation of the prevalence of H. hepaticus in commercially available mice. Of the 28 different strains or stocks, totaling 160 mice from four major commercial vendors, cultured for H. hepaticus, 100% of mice from two outbred strains from one vendor were infected with H. hepaticus, whereas 9 of 13 inbred mouse strains from another vendor were… CONTINUE READING
