Abstract

Intrapulmonary killing of Staphylococcus aureus proceeded at equal rates in guinea pigs, hamsters, rats, and mice. In the lungs of guinea pigs and hamsters, Proteus mirabilis was killed at virtually the same rate as S. aureus as compared with half the rate of inactivation in the lungs of rats and mice.
