Abstract

SUMMARY

Artificial air pouches in the connective tissue of mice were evaluated as a means of studying infections. Animals inoculated with type-1 cells developed an infection characterised by infiltration of polymorphonuclear leucocytes. Viable cocci could be recovered from the air pouches for up to 10 days after infection and intracellular cocci were evident in electronmicrographs within connective-tissue fibroblasts for at least 35 days, indicating that a persistent infection had been established. The mouse air pouch should be of value in the study of gonococcal and other infections.
