Adhesion of non-pathogenic bacteria to CaCO-2 cell monolayers

  • 2-a Values for bacterial adhesion to CaCO-2 cells are given as number of attached bacteria per CaCO-2 monolayer (log cfu/log 5.6 CaCO-2 cells) and percentage (%) of total (108 cfu/ml) after one hour of incubation. Results are given as the mean of three independent experiments.

  • PBMC, peripheral blood mononuclear cells.
