Abstract

Humans are uniquely susceptible to typhoid fever caused by infection with Salmonella enterica serovar Typhi. Mathur et al. now report that mice lacking Toll-like receptor 11, which is absent in humans, can be lethally infected with S. Typhi, a breakthrough that promises to speed the development of better vaccines.
