Quantitative bacterial studies of experimentally-infected laboratory animals. 5. The spleen size test as a supplementary method in the analysis of the pathogen-host relations in experimental infections with Salmonella dublin



Quantitative bacterial studies of experimentally-infected laboratory animals. 5. The spleen size test as a supplementary method in the analysis of the pathogen-host relations in experimental infections with Salmonella dublin



Archiv für Experimentelle Veterinarmedizin 42(6): 905-914



Studies were conducted into the dynamics of bacterial counts in mice experimentally infected with S. dublin, with the infected animals being simultaneously tested for their spleen weight and for the relationship between spleen weight, on the one hand, and bacterial counts as well as course of the infection, on the other. Colonization by administered pathogens of the spleen of mice led to enlargement of the organ. This applied equally to temporary colonization by avirulent salmonella. Splenomegaly was particularly manifest, from the 3rd week of virulent colonization. Enlargement of spleen mass was recorded also from mice which died of the infection. Therefore splenomegaly does not automatically support the assumption that strong defence reactions have been induced. The spleen weight test is recommended as a method complementary to analysis of the pathogen-host relationship in experimentally induced systemic bacterial infections.
