The phagocytic uptake and killing of Pasteurella multocida B: 2 field isolates (n, 9) and vaccine strain (P52) by mouse peritoneal phagocytic cells, in the absence and presence of opsonization was evaluated using in vitro phagocytosis and bactericidal assays. Opsonization either with hyperimmune serum or normal serum caused a nonsignificant increase in the percentage of phagocytosis over non-opsonized bacteria (P<0.01) in all the P. multocida B: 2 isolates including P52. It was observed that 99… CONTINUE READING
