Abstract

Summary

The effect of subinhibitory concentrations of rifampicin, chloramphenicol, tetracycline and nalidixic acid on the interaction of 2a and O124 with HeLa cells was examined. Antimicrobial agents altered adhesion, penetration and intracellular multiplication of the bacteria, as well as re-infection of adjacent cells. Chloramphenicol increased the virulence of the bacterial strains whereas nalidixic acid, tetracycline and rifampicin diminished it.
