Figure 3: Delayed phage treatment of bacteremic mice. A single i.p. injection of the highest dose of the phage preparation (3 109 PFU) was administered to bacteremic mice at the indicated times after the bacterial challenge. The mice were scored for their state of health as described in the text. Black and gray bars show their condition at the time of phage treatment and following phage treatment, respecti vely. When the treatment was delayed for 24 hrs, all the animals were moribund, yet approximately half of them not only survived but also went on to recover completely as a result of the single dose of phage
