Abstract

Summary

The effect of food and water deprivation (stress) on asymptomatic carriage of was investigated in mice given intra-nasally. Groups of mice were killed and examined by cultural and serological techniques before, during, and after a 3-day stress period. The numbers of salmonellae in the stomach, small intestine, and caecum+large intestine increased during the stress period, with the greatest increases occurring after 2–3 days. Stress-induced changes within the carrier animal apparently allo wthe multiplication of salmonellae to occur throughout the gastro-intestinal tract.
