Effects of immunization of recombinant Smlt4123 on tissue bacterial loads in a mouse model of S. maltophilia-induced infection. Immunization with recombinant Smlt4123 significantly reduced the bacterial loads in the blood (a), but had no effects on the bacterial loads in other organs, including the liver (b), spleen (c), lung (d), and kidney (e). Blood (n = 10/group), and organs (n = 10/group) were collected from the vaccinated and control mice 8hours after the infection with S. maltophilia (4.0 × 108 CFU). Unpaired Mann Whitney test was used for the comparison. * represents P < 0.05
