Survival of CD1 mice inoculated with the different Streptococcus suis sequence type 28 strains from North America. In this experiment, the infectious dose was 1 × 108 CFU/animal, 10-fold higher than in the previous experimental inoculation. Doses were intraperitoneally injected into the animals. No significant differences were found between groups.
