Primary cell culture from rabbit meniscus (fibrochondrocytes-FcrC) was infected for 24 hours with different inocula (102 to 107 Colony Forming Units-CFU) of Mycoplasma hominis PG-21, M. pneumoniae FH and 1428 or M. arthritidis PG-6. The severity of the different obtained cytophatic effects-CPE was inoculum, Mycoplasma species and strain dependant. These bacteria were recovered from all infected FcrC and the SP4 medium for mycoplasmas also caused toxic effect on the FcrC. It was concluded that… Expand
