Experimental pneumonia caused by Pasteurella haemolytica was induced in 2-week-old gnotobiotic (n = 4) and conventional (n = 6) calves by endobronchial inoculation into the right caudal lung lobe of 7.9 x 10(10) +/- 0.6 x 10(10) (mean +/- SD) colony-forming units of P haemolytica in the 6-hour log phase of growth. The calves were studied for 24 hours or less. Regression lines for the relationship between clinical index and time for the gnotobiotic group and conventional group of calves were compared, and the clinical index was found to be significantly (P less than or equal to 0.005) more rapid in the gnotobiotic group. There was also a significant difference in the preinoculation, absolute segmented neutrophil count (P less than or equal to 0.05), and in the total serum protein, albumin, and globulin values (P less than or equal to 0.05). Comparison of the preinoculation and post inoculation blood cell and blood chemical values revealed a significant increase (P less than or equal to 0.05) in the numbers of band neutrophils and fibrinogen in conventional calves, and a significant decrease (P less than or equal to 0.05) in the total WBC count in gnotobiotic calves. Necropsy of both groups of calves revealed a circular to oblong lesion that was congested, edematous, and firm, and which occupied 20% to 100% of the right caudal lung lobe and involved the remaining lung lobes to a more minor degree. When mean lesion scores of the 2 groups of calves were compared, no significant difference (P less than or equal to 0.05) was found.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)
