Clodrolip treated mice are not susceptible to A. fumigatus intranasal infection. In each experiment, groups of 5 mice were treated either with cortisone acetate, cyclophosphamide, RB6-8C5 antibody, or clodrolip prior to intranasal infection with 2 × 106 conidia of the luminescent A. fumigatus strain C3. Untreated infected mice are designated as immnocompetent (IC). Weight loss and survival were monitored for 8 days (A and B). (C): Time response study of luminescence emission from chest region 10 min after intraperitoneal injection of D-luciferin. Light emission from live animals was recorded for 5 min. Each point represents the average from 3 independent experiments of the total photon flux measured from a defined thoracic region from each individual animal of the respective cohort (5 mice). (D): Light emission from the lung of a dead animal immunosuppressed with cortisone acetate following direct injection of D-luciferin. A total photon flux/second of 3.744 × 106 has been measured using the living image software 3.1 after 1 min exposure.
