This report describes the experimental reproduction of strangles in horses and the subsequent host cell interactions with the strangles organism. For the first time this report shows the types of cells involved in this process and the very early events in the inflammatory response mounted by the horse in response to this organism. These results should be of significance to the development of improved vaccines and should provide information for other researchers keen to understand how horses mount immune responses to bacteria such as Streptococcus equi subspecies equi.
