Mouse Sepsis Model Induced by IP Infection with K. Pneumoniae, P. Aeruginosa and S. Aureus

Acute septicaemia in mice is the basic and most frequently used model in early evaluation of novel therapies. Mouse septicaemia model is simple to use as regards techniques of infection, treatment and data evaluation as well as economical concerning amounts of substances and duration.

Basic study design include single treatment prior to infection and monitoring of mortality up to 48-72h. Efficacy of the test compound is presented as survival rates.
