Salmonella strains resistant to normal cord serum were found to become susceptible to it when the outer membrane was damaged by colistin, adult normal serum or Tris-HCl buffer. The present results indicate that after such treatment cord sera exert bactericidal effect, despite significant deficiencies in factors playing an essential role in this process.
