Escherichia coli with both P and type 1 fimbriae caused vaginal colonization in the female green monkey, while only the P-fimbriated bacteria frequently caused ascending bladder infection. Bladder inoculation caused only short-lived bladder infection from type 1 fimbriated E. coli, but those with P-fimbriae caused acute pyelonephritis even in the absence of vesicoureteral reflux. Thus, type 1 fimbriae of E. coli, while causing vaginal colonization, did not often cause ascending infection in the non-compromised host as did P-fimbriated bacteria.
