  • Clinical studies have indicated that certain constituents of the normal throat flora may play a role in resistance to group A streptococcal infections. Strains of Streptococcus salivarius were among the most active components of this protective flora. The present studies were designed to determine the mechanism responsible for the antagonism of group A streptococci by S. Salivarius. Cell-free filtrates made at the end of the logarithmic growth phase of S. salivarius inhibited the growth of… CONTINUE READING
