Abstract

Neutrophils are important in controlling early infections with the intracellular bacterium Rhodococcus equi. Antineutrophil monoclonal antibody (RB6-8C5)-induced neutrophil deficiency during the first week after experimental infection of mice with R. equi resulted in more severe disease and significantly increased tissue concentrations of R. equi.
