From: Salmonella induces prominent gene expression in the rat colon

   Salmonella (logCFU/g)a
  Control Day 1 p.i. Day 3 p.i. Day 6 p.i.
Feces N.D. 7.22 ± 0.19 5.92 ± 0.24 6.04 ± 0.32
MLN N.D. 3.38 ± 0.43 5.85 ± 0.13 5.44 ± 0.05
Spleen N.D. N.D 3.20 ± 0.33 3.49 ± 0.05

  1. a The rats were orally infected with 3 × 109colony-forming units of S. enteritidis or control treated. Salmonella counts are expressed in log values as means ± SEM (n = 8). N.D. = not detected.
