1. It has been shown that the ability of virulent S. influenzae to kill mice is enhanced by suspending the organism in mucin. 2. The occurrence of a true infection characterized by in vivo multiplication of the organism has been established. 3. The necessity for using a pure inbred strain of mice for this type of study has been confirmed. 4. The increase in(More)

1. A comparative study of the mucin virulence of smooth, converted rough, and respiratory strains of H. influenzae was carried out in mice. 2. The smooth strains were found to be significantly more virulent than either the converted rough or respiratory strains. 3. The converted rough and respiratory strains were found to be approximately equal in(More)
