Microbial tolerance in secondary peritonitis is dose dependent

Abstract

Local microbial tolerance was investigated in a murine model of peritonitis. Peritoneal bacterial burden and inflammatory cytokine concentrations were determined at different times, within 48h after infection. Peritoneal macrophages were harvested from naïve mice or from mice 48h after infection and underwent ex vivo stimulation with different concentrations of Klebsiella. Cytokine secretion was determined in the supernatants. Peritoneal bacteria concentrations, remained relatively steady between 24h (median: 5.04 log CFU) and 48h (median: 5.19 log CFU) after infection. Peritoneal cytokine concentrations peaked early but were already diminished at 48h after infection, despite persistent high bacteria levels. Macrophages, harvested from naïve mice responded vigorously to ex vivo stimulation with 10(5) CFU and 2 x 10(8) CFU Klebsiella. Cells harvested from animals 48h after infection, were unresponsive to an ex vivo stimulation with 10(5) CFU Klebsiella, but fully responded to 10(8) CFU. Persistent intraabdominal bacterial infection induced dose dependent microbial tolerance in peritoneal macrophages.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
