Animal models of Salmonella infections: enteritis versus typhoid fever

Microbes Infect. Nov-Dec 2001;3(14-15):1335-44. doi: 10.1016/s1286-4579(01)01495-2.

Abstract

The most common disease syndromes caused by Salmonella serotypes in humans, typhoid fever and enteritis, can be modeled using Salmonella enterica serotype Typhimurium infections in mice and calves, respectively. This article reviews murine typhoid and bovine enteritis and discusses strengths, limitations and distinctive features of these animal models.
