Weight of the lung (a), spleen (c), and liver (e) compared to the body weight (%) and CFU (log)/g of the lung (b), spleen (d), and liver (f) were measured 2 days after infection with 2 × 106 CFU of S. pneumoniae D39 serotype 2. Lung and spleen weight in A:ICR were significantly different than in Korl:ICR and B:ICR. Liver weight in B:ICR was significantly lower than in Korl:ICR and A:ICR. Data are expressed as the mean ± SD. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01 between the ICR stocks using two tailed t-tests
