The invasion suppression assay of antibiotics

A549 cells (1 × 10cells/well) were infected for 1 h at 37°C with 1 × 10CFU of YS001 (A) or YS005 (B) in the presence or absence (control) of AMP, AZM, CLR, CFPN, or LVX (1 μg/ml). At 1 h after infection, the cell culture medium was exchanged for fresh medium containing GEN (100 μg/ml). One hour later, surviving intracellular bacteria were enumerated by plating. Data represent the means ± SD of three experiments with triplicate assays. *, < 0.05 (compared with control). ND, not detected.<p><b>Copyright information:</b></p><p>Taken from "Comparative efficacies of different antibiotic treatments to eradicate nontypeable infection"</p><p>http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2334/8/15</p><p>BMC Infectious Diseases 2008;8():15-15.</p><p>Published online 7 Feb 2008</p><p>PMCID:PMC2276502.</p><p></p>
