Figure 48-2: The distribution of phage pfu's in mice following various routes of administration. This graph was adapted from data from a 1973 experiment in which germ free mice were inoculated with a single dose of 2X1012 pfu Lambda phage. In these experiments oral administration of phage resulted in the detection of a systemic level of phage tissue titers that were 7 to 8 orders of magnitude lower than that achieved by systemic administration of phage (30).
