Abstract

Five strains of mice (C3H, CBA, BALB/c, TO and ICR) were inoculated intra-vaginally with in an attempt to produce an animal model of gonorrhoea. Of a total of 68 mice inoculated, only three (4.4%) were culture-positive after 3 days. Histological examination of both the genital mucosa of inoculated animals, and the mucosa of genital tract organ cultures inoculated failed to show any evidence of gonococcal adherence or colonisation. Mice of these strains, therefore, appear resistant to gonococcal infection of the genital tract.
