Table 3 Summarized results of the blood assay and platelet aggregation. The outcome is scaled from killed bacterial cells, low IL-6 secretion by blood cells and no stimulation of platelet aggregation to growth in blood, high IL-6 secretion and fast platelet aggregation by these symbols: -−−/−−/−/0/+/++/+++

From: Strain-dependent interactions of Streptococcus gallolyticus subsp. gallolyticus with human blood cells
