Several problems have been encountered with the application of published methods for the study of bacterial adherence to isolated uroepithelial cells. Of particular importance is the observation that urinary mucus traps some organisms but not others. Established techniques have been modified to overcome these difficulties and so allow a distinction to be made between adherence of bacteria to uromucoid and adherence to uroepithelial cells per se. The modified method was used to assess the… CONTINUE READING
