Evaluation of the Efficiency of Lytic Mycobacteriophage D29 on the Model of M. tuberculosis-Infected Macrophage RAW 264 Cell Line
Culture of mouse macrophages (RAW 264.7 ATCC strain) in wells of a 6-well plate was infected with M. tuberculosis in proportion of 15 mycobacteria per one macrophage and then treated with a lytic strain of mycobacteriophage D29. Antibacterial efficacy of mycobacteriophages was studied using D29 phage (activity 108 plaque-forming units/ml) previously purified by ion exchange chromatography. After single and double 24-h treatment, the lysed cultures of macrophages were inoculated onto Middlebrook 7H10 agar medium. The number of mycobacterial colonies in control and test wells (at least 3 wells in each group) was 300.178±12.500 and 36.0±5.4, respectively (p<0.01).
