Effect of dexamethasone on the Salmonella Typhimurium load in carrier pigs. Recovery of Salmonella Typhimurium bacteria from various organs and gut contents of carrier pigs that were injected with either HBSS (control group, n = 9) or 2 mg dexamethasone per kg body weight (dexamethasone group, n = 9), 24 h before euthanasia. The log10 value of the ratio of CFU/gram sample is given as the mean + standard deviation. Superscript (*) refers to a significant difference compared to the control group (p ≤ 0.05).
