Daily heat exposure restricted bacterial survival in mice. The bacterial burdens in the spleen and liver (a), weight of spleen (b) and liver (c) were evaluated two weeks post-infection in heat-exposed and non-exposed mice. Data represent the mean ± SD of replicates of six samples. Asterisks indicate significant differences (p < 0.05)
