Phenotypically determined resistance of gonococci to killing by normal human serum can be generated by growth of susceptible organisms in media containing guinea pig, calf or human serum. However, even in the best medium tested, i.e. defined medium containing 50% (v/v) guinea pig serum, resistance was greatly reduced after 24 h incubation and the maximum number of colony-forming units generated was 10(7) to 10(8) ml-1. Resistance was not acquired after incubation in guinea pig serum at low… CONTINUE READING
