Three Different Strains of Heat-Killed Group B β-Hemolytic Streptococcus Cause Different Pulmonary and Systemic Hemodynamic Responses in Conscious Neonatal Lambs


ABSTRACT: Although group Bβ -hemolytic streptococcus (GBS) causes pathologic hemodynamic alterations in both human neonates and neonatal animal models of sepsis, little is known about strain-dependent differences in hemodynamic responses to GBS. This study compared pulmonary and systemic hemodynamic dose-response profiles in conscious neonatal lambs with… (More)
