We developed an in vitro model to study the temperature-regulated cytotoxicity and intracellular growth of Mycobacterium haemophilum in cultured human epithelial and endothelial cells. M. haemophilum associated with human epithelial and endothelial cells at similar rates when incubated at 33 and 37 degrees C, but only the epithelial cell line supported the multiplication of this organism. M. haemophilum grew equally well with epithelial cells at both temperatures. The aminoglycoside antibiotic… CONTINUE READING
