  • Studies using an experimental model of the mouse and Candida albicans as the challenge organism attempted to define better the mechanism of nonspecific resistance to infection induced by bacterial endotoxins. In vitro studies showed a positive correlation between the growth of C. albicans in serum from mice obtained at daily intervals for 10 days after endotoxin or saline injection and the percentage iron saturation of the serum. In vivo studies in which one of four different concentrations of… CONTINUE READING
