Abstract: Cultures of a strain of Klebsiella pneumoniae were prepared, both with intact capsules and with only a residual layer of exopolysaccharide remaining. No significant difference in the survival of the two sets of bacteria was observed in aerosols at 60% relative humidity. The decapsulated bacteria multiplied less rapidly in mouse lungs than did the intact bacteria for the first 24 h after animal exposure. However, no subsequent difference in multiplication rate was observed.
