Abstract

The relative susceptibilities of C57BL/6NCR and BALB/cANNCR mice, F344/NCR rats, 2/NCR guinea pigs and CR:RGH Syrian hamsters to Bacillus piliformis infection were determined by orally inoculating 20 weanling females from each species with suspensions of B. piliformis spores. Animals from each...
