The close purity of this substance was(More)
Rabbit antiserum to Klebsiella pneumoniae showed a powerful protective effect against intramuscular infection in normal mice. No protective effect was observed in mice whose monocytes and polymorphonuclear cells were depleted by X-irradiation. The antiserum had approximately the same protective effect in mice whose macrophages were blocked selectively by(More)
