(A) Using flow cytometry, CD64 levels were measured at 3, 6 and 9 hours after treatment in blood samples from mice infected with Staphylococcus epidermidis (108 CFU/mouse), from mice infected with Staphylococcus.epidermidis (108 CFU/mouse) and treated either with MIX (RJI-C at 9 μg/mouse and TB-KK at 6 μg/mouse) or with gentamicin (5 μg/mouse). (B) mRNA expression level of COX-2, measured in kidneys of Staphylococcus.epidermidis (108 CFU/mouse ) infected mice and in kidneys of Staphylococcus epidermidis (108 CFU/mouse) infected mice and treated with MIX (RJI-C at 9 μg/mouse and TB-KK at 6 μg/mouse) or gentamicin (5 μg/mouse) . *p <0.05, **p < 0.01; ***p < 0.001, Student’s t test gentamicin vs MIX.
