Abstract

Acinetobacter calcoaceticus colonization was observed in the gastrointestinal tracts of C.B17-scid/seid (SCID) mice, while it was not observed in C.B17-scid/+ and C.B17-+/+ mice with normal immunity housed under the same conditions. A. calcoaceticus and other viable enteric bacteria were not isolated from any organs other than gastrointestinal tract in SCID mice. The mice colonized with this organism were apparently healthy and no significant visceral lesion was observed.
