A heterogenetic antigen, labile to heat (100 C) at alkaline pH, was found in many species of gram-positive bacteria (Rantz et al., J. Infectious Diseases 98:211, 1956). Erythrocytes sensitized with this antigen are agglutinated by homologous antibodies in normal human serum with heterogenetic antibodies in bacterial antisera from man and rabbit.(More)
A study has been made of a specialS. sonnei serum obtained from Inst. Séroth. Suisse and the following results have been obtained. 1. The antiserum contains antibodies specific forS. sonnei and, in addition, antibodies reacting with crude antigens from other enteric bacteria in the hemagglutination test. 2. Mixtures of this antiserum in rather high(More)
The activities of fluoroquinolones and a new macrolide against 30 clinical isolates of Mycobacterium tuberculosis were determined in vitro by agar diffusion. In order of relative potencies against M. tuberculosis, temafloxacin (MIC for 90% of isolates [MIC90], 2.3 micrograms/ml) was at least as active as the reference quinolones ofloxacin (MIC90, 2.4(More)
A non-species specific antigen was discovered in many gram-positive bacteria by means of hemagglutination and hemolysis tests (Rantz et al., J. Infectious Diseases, 98, 211, 1956). It was found in Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pyogenes, Streptococcus viridans, Diplococcus pneumoniae, as well as in one strain of Bacillus ski, Z. Immunitatsforsch.,(More)
Sterile tissues of human subjects free from infection and malignancy were assessed for an antigen that cross-reacts with the enterobacterial common antigen (ECA). Extracts of heated homogenates (HE) and ethanol-soluble (ES) fractions of liver, kidney, muscle, and heart tissues were examined for their capacities to react with ECA antibodies, as measured by(More)
Enterobacteriaceae share a common antigen (CA). The present investigation was carried out to determine whether this antigen is produced by representative strains of Escherichia, Salmonella, and Serratia grown in a completely synthetic medium. For comparative purposes, antigen production by the same strains grown in infusion broth was determined. CA, as(More)
