Systemic bacterial burden was characterized by CFU in liver, spleen and blood collected at necropsy 1 day after infection with S. Typhimurium D23580, SL1344 or SARA16 via the i.p. route for male and female mice (n = 4–8) on either control (A) or VAD (B) diet. Data represent mean ± SEM. Significance between male and female mice was determined with a Mann-Whitney test of log-transformed values (*, p<0.05; ns, not significant).
