Abstract

This study explains why the recently described triphasic lipopolysaccharide (LPS) fevers have been repeatedly mistaken for biphasic fevers. Experiments were performed in loosely restrained male Wistar rats with a catheter implanted into the right jugular vein. Each animal was injected with Escherichia coli LPS, and its colonic (Tc) and tail skin… (More)
