No bacteria were cultured from any of the sampling sites and Gram stains of the samples were negative. After three weeks of clindamycin therapy, SEM of tissue samples showed very few coccoid profiles, as was seen with the animals treated for two weeks. Bone chips showed only slight remnants of a biofilm (Figure 4b). Radiological results did change somewhat, showing a decrease in severity of the disease in the animals treated with clindamycin for three weeks. The clinical appearance of the tibiae at necropsy was almost normal with evidence of bone repair.

Aeruginosa was also evidenced when all three a-lactam AB (Carbenicillin, Ticarcillin and Amoxicillin) were used (Table 2). In contrast, no such alterations were observed when Chloramphenicol alone was used. 12 ~g/ml of Chloramphenicol. Fosfomycin (8 ~g/ml) was shown to give intermediate results. Specificity of such increased antigenicity was next tested, using absorption of anti 016 serum with non-treated or Carbenicillin treated Ps. aeruginosa 011 serogroup.
