Lethal Escherichia coli and Salmonella typhimurium endotoxemia is mediated through different pathways.


Despite the differences in the molecular structure between lipopolysaccharides (LPS) isolated from Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae or Salmonella typhimurium, the potential differences in their biological effects in vivo have not been investigated. In the present study, TNF and LT double knock-out (TNF-/-LT-/-) mice were almost as susceptible as TNF… (More)
